Campbell Hatton could be set for Sonni Martinez rematch after clinging to unbeaten ledger

Campbell Hatton

Campbell Hatton clung on to his unbeaten record with a slender points victory over Sonni Martinez.

The 20-year-old lightweight moved to 4-0 with a win over the Spanish-based fighter last Saturday night.

Hatton, who is the son of former world champion Ricky Hatton, boxed on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s catastrophic WBA Super, IBF, IBO and WBO world heavyweight title defeat at the hands of Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the rest of the world.

And despite getting the win by a margin of 58 points to 57 on referee Marcus McDonnell’s scorecard, ‘The Hurricane’ was unhappy with his performance and the suggestion is that he will rematch the Uruguay-born fighter before the end of the year, potentially on the undercard of Joseph Parker’s rematch against Derek Chisora at Manchester’s AO Arena on December 18.

Also on the undercard of Joshua’s shock defeat to Usyk, 258 Management-mentored American Christopher Ousley recorded his 13th straight win as a professional as won a 10-round majority points decision over Khasan Baysangurov.  

Ousley, who is now the WBA Inter-Continental middleweight champion, started the better and busier and the lead the poached them stood him in good stead as he began to tire in the last three rounds. 

Ousley took it on the scorecard, two judges going 97-94 and one 95-95. 

And Ukrainian light-heavyweight Daniel Lapin moved to 6-0 with a 60-55 points win over Polish-based Ukrainian Pavel Martyniuk.
