Ricky Hatton Mugged In China

Hitman Hatton hands over Rolex and invincibility

Word from overseas is that Ricky Hatton has been mugged while vacationing in China. He was ambushed while on holiday in Shanghai by a gang of thugs who wanted, reports The Mirror, and successfully snatched, his £4,000 Rolex.

According to Ricky’s agent Paul Speak, Hitman Hatton had been out drinking with friends when he and said friends were separated. Hatton, a bit in his cups, was attacked on his way back to his hotel.


“There was a scuffle, Speak said. He was pretty scared but did the sensible thing by not trying to fight his way out. Whenever he goes abroad he usually wears a cheap plastic watch but on this occasion he forgot it.

Hatton had flown to the Far East to witness his beloved Manchester City footballers pre-season tour.

“Ricky is a bit embarrassed because he knows that he should have stayed with his mates and not been walking the streets alone.”

If memory serves, not long ago Ricky was mugged after a night of drinking in safer-than-ever New York City
