Ricky Hatton dances for charity tomorrow night!

'The Hitman' looks unimpressed with his new outfit. 
British boxing legend Ricky Hatton goes from wearing gloves to dancing shoes tomorrow night when he takes part in 'Let's Dance For Comic Relief' on BBC 1 at 6:50pm.

'The Hitman' will be up against four other celebrities including comedians Tim Vine and Olivia Lee in the first series of heats, with the public voting for who they want to see progress into the next round.

"In the ring I think my footwork was very underrated," Ricky told WorldBoxingNews. "I used to feint, then slip to the left, slip to the right in order to find my body shots. Let's see if I can bring those moves from the ring to the dance floor."

The 34-year old won't be the first boxer to star in the show. Carl Froch, Johnny Nelson, Tony Jeffries and Duke McKenzie entered as a four-man group named 'The Champion Boxer' back in 2010.

Money raised from the show will go to this year's Comic Relief, so make sure you tune in and vote. Since 1985 Comic Relief has raised over £600 million for good causes in the UK and Africa.
