"My main focus is training and I don't want to be interrupted by anything," Tszyu said. "I'm here to do the job in the ring and it is the only thing that matters. I'm not here to give myself any enjoyment. One man who has seen Tszyu train in England is Wigan rugby league supremo Maurice Lindsay, who arranged his accommodation in a 100-bedroom country club owned by Wigan. "Kostya is an athlete I have a lot of respect for, he's so tough and he's very focused for this fight. I think his head is probably right now, he's ready and just waiting for the kick-off. Ricky Hatton is a good lad, too. He'll be a very good competitor without a shadow of a doubt because he's no mug, but I doubt whether he's met anyone who punches as hard as Kostya." It's not a strategy without problems - Hatton has had to endure late-night encounters with a fox and swooping bats, a rowdy cab full of trouserless mates and even a UFO sighting, while the sight of a young man running briskly through the night in a hooded tracksuit top was enough to draw the attention of the police on one occasion. "My theory is that anyone can cope with one late night," Tszyu said. "But if you string a few together, you really start to feel it take a toll on your body. The bottom line is, why change something that has worked so well for me for so long?" Another stark difference between the preparations of the two is their diets. The morning before the fight, 26-year-old Hatton will visit the Butty Box, a working-man's cafe, and order the 3.80 ($9.15) mega-breakfast, which comprises three sausages, three rashers of bacon, two hash browns, two eggs, two fat discs of black pudding, a pile of baked beans, grilled tomatoes and two slices of toast. It's a ritual Hatton has followed before each of his 38 fights, and with some success - the World Boxing Union champion is unbeaten.
