Boxing: Hatton denies drug and drink problem
Monday 20 September 2010
Former world boxing champion Ricky Hatton spoke at the weekend of his "disgust" at his alleged binge drinking and drug taking but insisted he did not have a problem. 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 on Monday.
Hatton, who was secretly filmed taking what is alleged to be lines of the class A drug on a night out, gave a candid interview to the News of the World. "I'm so angry I could knock myself out," he said. "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, he insisted he did not have a problem, saying: "I'm not the slightest bit worried about the cocaine. Problem? What problem?"
