Ricky Hatton Cocaine Video Shame

September 13, 2010

The Ricky Hatton cocaine video has made international headlines, and now comes news of the boxer entering rehab. Read more here and check out photos and video.

News of the World posted an alleged video of world famed boxer Ricky Hatton snorting cocaine.

In the video, seen here and below, the Hatton allegedly does several lines of what appears to be cocaine, and is seen drinking. Fellow fighter Emma Bowe has also come forward telling the site some wild stories, saying it is for his own good, he needs to get help.

“I’m doing this for Ricky’s own good. I hope he gets help and advice before cocaine destroys him.”

Meanwhile, Hatton’s family has vowed to stand by him,

“This has come as a shock to the family. It is a loving family. We will stand by Ricky.”

Hatton’s spokesman Max Clifford told the UK’s Press Association:

“Ricky’s father has been talking to the specialists in recent weeks. He has been told Ricky’s depression is severe and that he has a drink problem. The drugs are recent and not actually the problem. The specialists are very confident if Ricky does what they tell him with the treatment, therapy and advice, he can sort himself out.”

Hatton is famous for his aggressive fighting style. Amazingly, in his 47 fight career, he has only been beaten by Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather.

According to reports,

Charles Giles, chairman of the board of control, said that the board wished to see him “at the earliest opportunity and discuss the issues raised in the press accounts with him”.

This is quite the scandal with it being supposedly caught on video. I hope he does get help. It is sad to see such a role model in bad light.

    Ricky Hatton got caught doing some lines of cocaine.

    Is it good for boxing? No. Is it good for his body? Definitely not. Is it the end of the world? I think not. In no way do I condone drug use (these days), but in much the same breath, I don’t think we can commit him to crack alley.

    Now to counter myself, I’ll say this: Ricky Hatton has a little money. So that little shoe baggie probably wasn’t filled with that Brixton banger, but some proper, and pure rich white man powder cocaine. With that in mind, the way he put those three lines down was pro-style. He wasn’t shy at all about bending over and taking a rail or two (I just had to get that off).

    We just all need to chill and see what happens. I know from the 90’s that doing a little (or a lot) of blow is not the end of your life. If Hatton can go to rehab, and clean up, he may still have a fight or two left … with who, I can’t even imagine right now. If he can’t kick the habit, his career is done, but a lot of rich people use cocaine on recreational basis – its bad, but they don’t all end up in alleys. So let’s just keep it in perspective and see where he is a few months from now.
