Hatton: all eyes on the Hitman

Hatton: all eyes on the Hitman

Thursday, May 1

Well it's good news for the Brits arriving out here, because the weather is picking up.

It's getting hotter by the day, but thankfully it's not too bad early in the mornings, when I do my regular run around Sunset Park.

Today was another busy day - media day down at the MGM Grand.

Basically it is the last chance the media get to talk to us before the fight so there were plenty of last-minute television, radio and newspaper interviews out of the way.

After speaking to just about everybody, I got away to the Fashion Show shopping mall for a quick Starbucks and a spot of shopping.

I have bought a new jacket for after the fight - the dodgy shirts can wait until I get home - and it needed adjusting. You'll no doubt see how good a fit it is at some stage over the weekend.

Then it was the usual evening schedule; back to the apartment for a spot of dinner and a chilled out evening relaxing in front of the television.
