SCOTT JENKINS has revealed he has had a one-to-one training session with Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton.
And the prospect hopes he will reap the benefits when he bids for his fourth professional win at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge Arena on Saturday March 24.
Jenkins, 21, boxes a four rounder against a selected opponent on the undercard of Gary Buckland’s British super-featherweight title defence against Paul Truscott.
The youngster who comes from the Steel City, but now lives near Chesterfield is trained by his work boss, Grant Smith and dad Lee.
Scott said: “I have been over to Ricky’s gym for one session where he took me on the body bag and gave me a hard circuit.
“I really enjoyed it and if I could get some sponsorship to help finance me I would love to go across to Manchester once or twice a week for a circuit.”
Jenkins is currently in bed at 7.30pm every evening and up at 5.30am to go for an early morning run.
After breakfast he works as a fitter for Grant Smith Kitchens from 7.30am-2pm. Then he and his boss knock off for gym work.
Unbeaten Scott who expects to sell 400 tickets for his contest added: “Grant is brilliant with me and like a second dad to me. I see more of him then my dad.
“He drives me all over the place for sparring and arranged work so we finish early.
“Grant is a bit of a Brendan Ingle type trainer and is brilliant at technical work. My dad likes getting me throwing uppercuts.
“I am getting the best of both worlds with them both looking after me and I feel I’m improving with each fight.”
Fellow ticket sellers Adam Etches is also in action on the Sky Sports televised card and other hopefuls boxing include unbeaten heavyweight Richard Towers, Belarusian sensation Sergey Rabchenko, Carl Bell, Jason Cunningham and Jack Perry.

TOP promoter Ricky Hatton believes his bumper bill in Sheffield next month will give British boxing a boost
‘The Hitman’ stages what will be a sell-out night at Ponds Forge Arena on Saturday March 24, with Sky Sports broadcasting the action.
British boxing made headlines for the wrong reasons at the weekend when David Haye and Dereck Chisora brawled at a press conference.
Hatton said: “What happened in Munich wasn’t right, but there are thousands of shows every year and incidents like that are rare.
“Hatton Promotions Sheffield card next month will be fantastic. Fans at the arena and watching on TV will only have good things to say about British boxing afterwards.”
In top of the bill 12 rounder local hero Ryan Rhodes faces Belarussian sensation Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight crown.
Exciting Gary Buckland will make his first British super-featherweight title defence against Paul Truscott.
Undefeated Steel City ticket sellers Adam Etches, Scott Jenkins and Richard Towers will be among the prospects in action.
Hatton added: “Ryan against Sergey is a battle between two of the world’s best light-middleweights and Gary’s fight will be a barnstormer.
“Either fight would be good enough to stand alone on a card. To have both on the same show is a right treat.
“They are going to be breath-taking fights where the action will be non-stop.
“Sheffield is a boxing boom city at the moment and every time we promote there it is sold out.”
Boxing starts at 6.15pm and the remaining few tickets are priced at £35 general admission, £55 floor seating, £75 ringside and £100 VIP Ringside. You can buy by calling 01925 755 222, Ticketmaster 0844 847 2500 , Ticketline 0844 888 9991 , any boxer on the bill or online www.hattonboxing.com
The popularity of combat sport in the Maltese Islands is undeniable. Week after week, boxing and kickboxing athletes are in action on the international platform, admittedly & true more abroad than in Malta itself – Our Maltese Brave-hearts battle on and have not let the lack of local, regular competition deter them from their moment of glory in the ring. Over the past few years results have been consistent, in the various combat sport disciplines; in the amateur, semi pro or professional ranks.
The 27th and 28th of January saw a number of Maltese boxers & kickboxers competing both in Malta and in Belfast Ireland.
On Friday, in Malta, the local popular boxer Billy “The Hitman” Corito, took on and beat Ian Toby at the Sky Club in Paceville, in the second round by TKO, in a semi pro fight. This was the eight straight win for the undefeated local hero.
On Saturday, in Belfast Ireland, the Ying Yang Kickboxing club of Fgura, Malta, up against Ireland’s Prokick Club. This time around our locals did not fare so well, and none of the Maltese on the fight card got positive results.
