NIGHT OF THE FIGHT: HATTON’S LAST STAND will air on ITV4 at 10pm on 16th October. The documentary has unprecedented access to Ricky Hatton as he makes a comeback for his last ever fight. Produced by Mat Hodgson and Dan Glynn at Ad Hoc Films, the film is a raw account of events surrounding his final professional bout in Manchester against Vyacheslav Senchenko.

The title sequence was directed by Dan Glynn at Ad Hoc Films. The animation and compositing were done at Make Productions and provided as graphics rushes, which were then edited together by Ad Hoc Films to produce the films striking title sequence. The title sequence depicts Ricky’s professional career as a series of black and white photos hung on a boxing gym walls. This gym environment slowly becomes more decrepit and rundown as the title sequence progresses, which visually echoes Ricky’s real life downward spiral into depression and suicidal thoughts, despite all his previous breathtaking successes
