Ricky Hatton: “It was my f*cking birthday”


Yesterday the popular British ex-world champion Ricky Hatton celebrated his 44th birthday. But this time the holiday frankly did not work out.

All because of doping. Yesterday, one of the most anticipated boxing fights in Britain was disrupted – the fight between middleweight Chris Eubank Jr. (32-2, 23 KOs) and welterweight Conor Benn (21-0, 14 KOs).

reacted to the news: “You know… Considering the news I just heard, it was the f*cking birthday of my life.”

Legend agrees British Boxing Council (BBBC) cancel the show due to doping – Benn was caught using a banned drug clomiphene: “This is just a mockery … But I agree that the safety of the boxers should always come first. It’s a shame that this even happened. After all, all the fighters were hard at work preparing for the show, not only the participants of the main event.”

Benn, understandably, says he’s “shocked” that he failed his doping test. Says he’s “clean”. And promoter Frank Warren commented on this doping scandal: “The Council did everything right.”
