    Hatton's licence withdrawn
    (UKPA) 4 hours ago
    Former world champion Ricky Hatton has had his boxer's licence withdrawn by the British Boxing Board of Control.
    The 31-year-old, who is to be investigated by police over allegations he snorted cocaine in a hotel room, was admitted to a rehabilitation clinic 10 days ago.
    Hatton was also fined 20,000 and had his manager's and second's licences revoked, but the BBBofC saw no benefit in withdrawing his promoter's licence.
    A BBBofC statement read: "Mr Ricky Hatton MBE was legally represented at a hearing held by the stewards of the British Boxing Board of Control on Wednesday, 22nd September 2010 to answer charges of bringing boxing into disrepute arising out of incidents of alcohol and drug abuse by him which had been reported widely across the media.
    "The board is especially concerned to keep the sport of boxing free from drugs, whether taken for recreational or performance-enhancing reasons, and to be vigilant in identifying and dealing with cases of alcohol abuse.
    "At the hearing, the board found Ricky Hatton guilty of misconduct in that his actions and behaviour were detrimental to the interests of boxing and to the public interest, and that he had brought the sport into disrepute.
    "Ricky Hatton is not an active boxer and his current physical condition is such that the Board decided to withdraw his boxer's licence."
    The statement continued: "Ricky Hatton's manager's and second's licences allow him to have close, day-to-day contact with participants in the sport and the board has taken the view that his conduct and present circumstances make such contact wholly inappropriate. Consequently, the board has decided to withdraw such licences.
    "The board gave long and hard consideration as to whether or not to withdraw or suspend his promoter's licence. Having considered all the circumstances, in particular the role of promoter as opposed to that of manager or second, the fact that Hatton Promotions is a large organisation employing a number of experienced individuals in varying roles, including professional persons, and the effect upon innocent persons, including professional boxers, the board concluded that justice would not be served by withdrawing his promoter's licence.
    "Therefore, his promoter's licence remains. In addition, Mr Hatton was fined 20,000 plus costs."

    Shame, but it didn't look like he was coming back.
    The pertinent point is the Promoter's licence; that is what matters. He tantalised and teased regarding the resumption of his boxing career but the longer he was out the more likely it would be that he had finished. The UK press were attempting to drum-up a contest between him and Amir Khan possibly to see the 'baton' passed to the newer talent but I wouldn't have wanted to see it. Somewhat exploitative and irrelevant.

    His promoters licence is what matters as it represents his future and he could still trade on his name in that capacity. The other string to his bow is his After-Dinner speaking as he is a witty and funny chap but he would still have to fill his days. In promoting, he is assisted by his father and could help progress his brother Matthew's career.

    He was probably grateful for the 20K as it looks like 'punishment' but represents the notional loss of a Rolex Watch.

    Anyway, he's Human and made a mistake so it's a time to turn the page.

    Very true. I don't think he'll be the next Mike Tyson. I've enjoyed watching him and it's a shame (but a good thing) that he won't be fighting again. Hopefully, he'll have a successful retirement too.

    Good to hear he has gone into rehab..I think he will be alright. Like I said before, I believe he would be a good trainer.
    I think he just needs some time to come to terms with the fact that he is finished as a top flight professional fighter. And I hope he DOES stay retired, because he has (seemingly, anyways) no money issues and can give to the sport in other ways now.
    Once he has a stint in rehab and gets to dry out he will be fine.

    Just goes to show, no matter if your a pro fighter or not, a bigger man always can put the hurt on the smaller man. And body builders can have a terrible temper

    Im a little confused, since it looks like two different articles. Did he get knocked out after he ingested 7 lines of cocaine and 11 pints of beer? If so, a mild breeze could probably beat him in a fight.

    ...and they can't throw a proper punch 'cos they don't know how to, so they rely on a Hook 'cos their Shortened Muscles (a by-product of heavy weights and inadequate Stretching) means the a Right Cross is impossible to it naturally tightens into a Hook.

    You only need to stand back.

    More seriously, it was a notable fault in ex-HW Mike Weaver 'cos he had been a BodyBuilder - still it eventually worked against Big John Tate :eusa_thin :icon_thum

    Don't be silly. Most street fights are stand up fist fights.
