Hatanaka began karate at the first grade of elementary school, and won the Japanese championship in the juvenile division at its sixth grade and the first grade of junior high school. In addition, he began football at the fourth grade of elementary school, and was scouted by a prestigious high school. He also set an interval record in the local ekiden race at the age of a junior high school student. At that time, informed from an acquaintance that a professional boxer got paid 30,000 yen per match in the amount of time, he became interested in boxing and joined Matsuda Boxing Gym. He compiled an amateur record of 26–5 (21 KOs) before turning professional.
In his first defense against Daniel Zaragoza on June 14 of that year, Hatanaka was cut on the corner of his left eye from an accidental head butt in the fourth round, and the referee took a point away from Zaragoza. From the seventh or eighth round, Hatanaka had triple vision in his right eye, and the blood flowed into his left eye. Finally, Zaragoza was crowned the new champion via a split decision in front of 9,000 spectators at the Nagoya Rainbow Hall. In 2007, Alvaro Morales of ESPN Deportes wrote it as many Asians’ consideration, “the best fight of the decade”. Although Hatanaka desired a rematch with Zaragoza, he suffered from ophthalmoplegia caused by this fight, and retired as a boxer after four months.

Hatanaka moved up two weight divisions and fought against Pedro Rubén Décima for the WBC super bantamweight title at the Nagoya International Exhibition Hall, aka Port Messe Nagoya, on February 3, 1991. He was floored in the first round, but felt calm enough to listen to Tsutsumi’s instruction between rounds.

In his first world title shot against WBC super flyweight champion Gilberto Román in September 1988, Hatanaka entered the ring of the Nagoya Rainbow Hall with full smile.

Though Hatanaka was given a full five minutes to recover, he was hit below the belt again in the third round and took three minutes’ rest. As the rounds rolled on, Román kept his pace to retain his title via a unanimous decision. Hatanaka was so nervous that he remembered almost nothing after the fight.
