FORMER boxing world champion Ricky Hatton’s fall from grace has been as dramatic as a heavyweight hitting the canvas.
The Hitman has been involved in two bar brawls in a matter of days in Tenerife, a far cry from the glory days when thousands of fans followed him to Las Vegas for bouts against the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Hatton’s latest barroom sparring partner – Brit holiday maker Daniel Culloty – was left hospitalised with several teeth missing after making a joke about the boxer’s karaoke performance.
Just two days before Irishman Stephen O’Hagan received a brown jaw, eye socket, nose and wrist after the hitman reacted badly to a joke about Manchester City during the Manchester derby.
Both incidents are said to have happened in the same Irish bar near to where Hatton now lives.
