  • Brock's a big bloke, isn't he? If you found him in bed with your girlfriend, you'd tuck him in!
  • I was leaving the hotel to get to the fight when my phone went and someone said 'Hello Ricky, it's Tom'. I said 'Tom who?' and when he said 'Tom Jones' I told him to eff off! I thought it was a wind-up!
  • I have always really liked Tom Jones and I can't wait to see him in action. One thing is for sure, I would rather be singing for a living than getting punched on the head.

Ricky on other boxers (Sourced)[edit]

  • He was very awkward, he was swaying back from the punches and that made it very difficult to nail him.
  • If you want to watch two guys knock hell out of each other, watch us.
  • It will be an honour to share the ring with José. You only become a great fighter if you share the ring with other great fighters, and that is exactly what José is.
    • Hatton praising José Luis Castillo's talent in the ring. [11]
  • I gave him a look that said 'go on, get up if you want some more'. I've thrown a fair few benders like that in other bouts but to do it against someone of his experience is a bit special.
