    Former boxing world champion Ricky Hatton is dating a stunning Playboy model.

    The 'Hitman' has been romancing Chelsea Claire, left, for the past few months. The couple have shared photos of their nights out online – with Chelsea adding the hashtag “feeling loved.”

    They have spent dates at the pub in Ricky’s home town of Hyde, near Manchester, and have been on holiday together. Chelsea posted in August: “One of my favourite evenings in Tenerife. . .date night.”

    More than a decade on from his retirement, Hatton remains close to the sport in which he was once crowned a world champion at light-welterweight and welterweight. The Mancunian even got back in the ring last year when he fought fellow icon Marco Antonio Barrera in an eight-round exhibition.

    He's since become more involved with the coaching aspect and cornered Tyson Fury in one of his three fights against Deontay Wilder. Hatton also acts as a mentor for his undefeated son, Campbell, who boasts a 13-0 professional record at 22 years of age.

    Pals congratulated him and Chelsea, with one writing: “Hope ur treating her like the princess she deserves.” On her profile on the Playboy website Chelsea, believed to be 31, said: “I’m a bubbly blonde from Ireland. I love adventure and fun.”

    A pal with knowledge of the situation added: “It’s still very early days and they are taking things as they come.” Ricky, 45, was previously spotted cosying up to Playboy bunny Carla Howe on a night out in Manchester in 2017.

    Sky Sports is bringing you 500 live football games to watch, as well access to Cricket, Golf, F1, Boxing, NFL, NBA and more across eight dedicated channels. Sky Sports is the only way to watch all the action this year.

    Hatton, 45, was recently confirmed as the first celebrity contestant poised to compete on the next series of Dancing On Ice. The ex-fighter said he wants to 'do his little bit for mental health and try to give a little back' to the fans.

    And that's not the only new partner he'll have on his arm after growing increasingly close to Claire in recent weeks. However, he'll hope this relationship has a happier ending after his previous Playboy experience with Howe.
