David has got such massive ability, massive punching power, you can't tell me he's not capable of knocking out any heavyweight out there. He's had a bit of a bad run, but he can't lose that faith.
The Liverpudlian is looking to bounce back from a devastating knockout defeat by 'AJ's challenger Alexander Povetkin, in March, and with his own heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman sparring 'Pricey', Hatton wants him to follow in Bruno's footsteps.
"Nathan has just done six rounds with David Price and it was brilliant," he told Sky Sports News.
"It was good to see Pricey looking so good. He's had a few defeats along the way, but as I just said to him, the best inspiration he can use for those defeats is to look at our Frank Bruno.
"He got beat by (James) 'Bonecrusher' Smith, he got beat by (Tim) Witherspoon, got beat by (Mike) Tyson, but he got there in the end, so never lose faith in it.
