Ricky Hatton believes Ray Oliveira will give him the perfect preparation as he prepares to meet either Kotsya Tszyu or Sharmba Mitchell next year.
The current WBU light-welterweight champion will make the 15th defence of his title when he takes on the experienced American at the ExCel Arena in London on December 11.
The 26-year-old is well aware that he is risking everything when he takes on Oliveira as he stays busy in preparation to face the winner of November's IBF title showdown between Tszyu v Mitchell.
However the Mancunian believes fighting the 36 year-old will be the perfect tune-up as he looks to take his career to the next level after going undefeated in 37 bouts.
