Paul Dodds, Partner, Else Solicitors LLP on behalf of Ricky Hatton
I confirm that Ricky Hatton has been left unable to fulfil his media commitments at the impending Floyd Mayweather Jnr vs. Marcos Maidana fight.
Ricky has been advised that he must apply for a Visa for entry into the US as the documents he intended to travel with have been deemed insufficient for entry at this time. This was a huge surprise to Ricky but unfortunately nothing can be done to make the application in time for him to travel this week.
Ricky has been looking forward to returning to Las Vegas once again, the home of many of his famous boxing occasions, and to working closely with BoxNation as a commentator at this Saturday's event.
There has been no indication that Ricky will not be able to travel in the future and I can confirm that Ricky has no criminal convictions of any sort and intends to make the application for a new Visa as soon as possible.
It is not intended that Ricky will make further comment or be available to any other media outlet due to his commitments
