Ricky Hatton in tears
First let me congratulate Ricky Hatton for successfully returning in the ring. Ricky Hatton is one of the best UK fighters and no one can argue how fans loved him. Ricky Hatton was obviously upset with his lost and most people especially with what had happen in the past may be wondering what is next for Ricky.
For a proud man, losing is a lot to take, most especially when you are in front of your home crowd. Ricky Hatton realization that he can no longer fight top level boxing came in a rude awakening, It’s difficult to accept that your body don’t agree with your mind. Ricky’s body betrayed him in the ninth round and no matter how he want to get up and fight, he could not, pretty telling that his body could not take anymore abuse inside the ring. It was time once again to hang up the gloves.
Ricky Hatton confirmed all this in his press conference.

Ricky Hatton denies drink or drugs problem

Former world boxing champion Ricky Hatton blames his downhall on depression, blackouts and the defeat that ended his career, but denies he has drug and drink problems.

Speaking to the News of the World on a break from The Priory clinic, Hatton said: “I have let everyone down, but the cocaine had no effect on me.”

The boxer, who was pictured by the newspaper last week snorting seven lines of cocaine in a hotel during a drinking binge, said in the interview: “I’m so angry I could knock myself out.

“I’m disgusted at myself for what I have done. I’ve had a wonderful career and am furious that I have tarnished it.”

However Hatton, whose treatment at The Priory clinic is for depression, also said: “I’m not the slightest bit worried about the cocaine. Problem? What problem?”

He said his drinking is not an issue either, after confessing to downing nearly 50 pints of Guinness a week.

You would associate alcoholism with shorts like whisky and vodka – but I have never really had that,” the News of the World quotes him as saying.

Hatton, 31, a former two-times world light-welterweight and welterweight champion nicknamed The Hitman, blames his predicament on blackouts, panic attacks and depression following a humiliating second-round knockout by Filipino fighter Manny Pacquiao which ended his career, the newspaper said.

He said he has no memory of the night when the News of the World’s pictures were obtained.

“When was that? I honestly had no memory of that night because when I have been drinking I have been having blackouts.”

But Hatton – now facing investigation by Greater Manchester Police and the British Boxing Board of Control – reckons the drug would have had little or no affect on him.

I have dabbled with the drug on a few sparing occasions,” he told the newspaper. “The only time I have ever done it is when I have been so depressed or drunk that it’s a case of, ‘Go on then’.”

When asked if he can remember how many “sparing” occasions he snorted it, Hatton jabs back: “It’s not hard to get hold of and because of the depression I have been drinking more.

Hatton distraught over drugs allegation, spokesman says

LONDON (Reuters) – British former world boxing champion Ricky Hatton is “distraught and devastated” after newspaper allegations of cocaine use, his spokesman said on Sunday.

 

Hatton, who last fought in May 2009 after a career in which he regularly ballooned in weight before fasting dramatically for his fights, was filmed by the News of the World appearing to snort white powder in a Manchester hotel toilet.
“He’s very upset and very down as you’d imagine,” his spokesman Max Clifford told BBC radio. “He said he feels he’s let everyone down: himself, family, friends and the many fans who have been nothing but supportive.
“He does recognize that he’s in a bad way mentally and been in a bad place for some considerable time, a year or so,” Clifford said.
“He needs to face it full on and show the courage he always did whenever he climbed into the ring.
“We all have to wait and watch and see what happens but what I’m hoping is that he tackles it with courage.
“I hope this will bring him to his senses and make him face up to a problem that has been concerning people for a while.
“I hope he can sort himself out and get himself clear because everyone knows that (with drug use) it’s a one-way path.”
Hatton, who held world titles at welterweight and light-welterweight, won 45 of his 47 fights but has not fought since he was stopped in the second round by Filipino Manny Pacquiao in May 2009 in Las Vegas.
