Ricky Hatton Had a Shitty Weekend


(Any of you blokes got any Visine?)

Last weekend was one that former boxing champion Ricky Hatton likely wants to forget.

Not only did "The Hitman" get knocked out with one punch in a drunken bar fight, he also got sold out to a tabloid by a lady friend who filmed the British boxer snorting copious amounts of cocaine off of a table and a toilet lid in her hotel.

Now Hatton has had to answer to the press and his fiancee for his behavior and has reportedly pulled a Tiger Woods, admitting himself into rehab to escape the media spotlight while he sorts out his problems and waits for the dust to settle. The official statement from his spokesperson is that Hatton is being treated for "depression and a drinking problem" and that "the drugs are quite recent and not actually the problem."

Now, I’m not justifying Hatton being out on the town with another woman or for getting wasted on coke and a few gallons of booze and acting like an idiot, but the fact that the woman, who claims to be a worried friend, went to the papers instead of contacting his family makes me think she set him up for a paycheck.


In the story from the British gossip rag, News of the World, the woman, who was identified as Irish boxer, Emma Bowe, says she first discovered Hatton was using cocaine months ago when he mistakenly pulled out a bag filled with white powder instead of his hotel key.

It’s a somewhat odd coincidence that she had a video camera set up in her hotel room which seemed to already be rolling when they walked into the suite.

"I’m doing this for Ricky’s own good," she told  News of the World. "I hope he gets help and advice before cocaine destroys him."

You mean like a lady friend going to the media with a video of him doing coke off a toilet seat while his fiancee was sitting at home with his child?

Yeah I don’t think this is anything new. Just the fact he has done coke in front of a camera which has fucked him… but I’d imagine he has been doing this all the way through his career when he’s not training. I remember watching on TV when he wasn’t training, he was huge and in a café ordering a ‘full English breakfast’. So it seemed like he didn’t give a shit about his body at all. So this is no real surprise.

Let’s just wait until this happens to Wayne Rooney a couple of years down the line, just like Paul Gascoigne.

Something about Northerners, having it all and then going totally off the rails… Prince Naseem is another example.

The woman's a boxer. That's why she has a jaw like Stallone.

first off, Ricky she's beautiful. Second, if you want your kids fighting heavyweight you better man up! Finally, I'm not sure who his next fight should be between her since she set him up and she herself is a female boxer or the chump in the bar that knocked him out already. No one thought Rocky could win the rematch, no one but him Ricky!

@Dano

LOL not me, but thanks for pointing it out now I'm gonna have to go back and check the last few articles. As usual I've gone MIA for a bit. School just started back up, starting out with BJJ, and I'm out in the shop or studying every other chance I get. CP gettin' BUMPED.

@ dano - it was Viva. And these tags are some gems.
DazedNConfused- September 13, 2010 at 3:04 pm
LOL @ RwilsonR. Great comment.

And yeah, I think people are thinking this is something new for Ricky. From what I've read he's had these problems for a longtime. It's just some Tranny didn't videotape it until now.
danomite- September 13, 2010 at 2:52 pm
Who was it that noticed the ridiculous tags at the bottom of the articles lately? I think it was steampunk or viva hate maybe. Anyways, they're gonna love the tags on this one.

@ mothercruncher - So I guess women in the UK have the trifecta - biggest boobs, biggest teeth, and biggest cocks.

@KCC
That 24/7 of Hatton was the lifestyle that made him a great boxer....The photo above looks like Lerprechaun 4(is it 4?) goes to Las Vegas..Is that not gold shillings on the table or are they making some new kind of jimmy these days?
@DazedandConfused
I just hate the ol' pulling out my bag instead of my keys at the door thing...In Montreal we call those nights "Anyday of the week that ends with a Y".

Ballkick- September 13, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Fuck.
It would be quite interesting to find out who supplied the coke that Hatton is seen filling his shnoz with.......My guess is,.....the same person who,...filmed him snorting it,...and the same person who leaked this story.
"It" truly looks like a transgender person in the photo,..very handsome girl.

Fuck guys are stupid sometimes.
Kid Clam Curtains- September 13, 2010 at 1:31 pm
I agree w/ Dazed and Confused. Who here hasn't done rails off some random bushpig's ass and gotten pissed because she's so sweaty that your lines are sticking like pixie stix to a little leaguer's tongue. Before I turned 30 I used to call nights like that "tuesday"

Only difference is I wouldn't let anybody video it.

While we're on the topic of mixed martial arts, who is everybody's pick for the Super Bowl this year?

is it me or is it just weird that his chasing his coke down with white wine?
Murdock- September 13, 2010 at 1:09 pm
Man I feel bad for the guy...Ever since he had back 2 back losses against floyd and manny he's been in a downard spiral. I remember watchin' him with his kid and fiance 24/7 on hatton/pacquiao. Hope he gets his shit together and quit messing with yetis.
FreddyFangers- September 13, 2010 at 1:02 pm
I always hated that little fucker....
DazedNConfused- September 13, 2010 at 1:02 pm
Fuck it man, Hattons always been known to gain like 65lbs and go on drinking/coke binges in between fights. The mans got some issues, but lets not pretend like he's totally out of hand. His night and a couple of my saturday nights in the past look quite similar. Let the man have some fun haha.
