This rendition of former World Junior Welterweight Champion Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton in what meant to be a companion piece to the Manny Pacquiao acrylic. I was aiming for this to be done right before his May 2009 title defense against Pacquiao. When Hatton lost the championship, I took a little time off just to let the dust of that loss settle. By no means, however, was I going to skimp on detail and time just to get it out of the way. About two months after the Pacquiao-Hatton fight, I returned to finish it and made certain, I kept the style as close as possible to the Pacquiao piece.
