Amir Khan and Ricky Hatton to Take Questions Live on YouTube, Feb. 3

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Ricky Hatton has already done a live YouTube discussion recently, and now he's teaming up with Amir Khan for a tandem effort on February 3. The show will air live at Hatton Boxing's YouTube channel at 8 p.m. GMT (3 p.m. EST). So long as it's embeddable, we'll probably have it up here on the site as well.

"It’s the chance for a bit of fun and banter," said Khan via press release. "It's good for boxing fans around the world who want to ask us questions. We’re glad to give them the chance and it’s good to interact with the fans because that’s what it’s all about. We are People’s Champions and we want to do it."

"Amir is a good friend and a great champion and has a lot of fans," said Hatton. "I am sure we will have some interesting questions from the viewers once again. It should be a brilliant program."

The show could help mend a couple PR fences for Khan if enough people watch and he can stay relaxed enough to show the funnier side of his personality. The weird thing about Amir Khan is he actually is a very nice, very charming kid in most interviews, but the stuff people remember always seems to be him "whining." Hatton's affable nature could be just what the doctor ordered for Khan right now.
