Lawyers for the the boxer Ricky Hatton have revealed today that they are desperately trying to fight the contract that sees him due to come out of retirement in a matter of days in a fight against Vyacheslav Senchenko.
Seemingly the mancunian boxer was so confused by the boxing promoter who he signed the deal with, he actually believed he was signing to be a contestant on this years Celebrity Strictly Come Dancing competition.
"Its not just the fact that he has already decided to exit the boxing game", one of his legal team revealed, "but the fact is his preparation for this fight is all wrong.
He has been spending weeks learning the foxtrot and pasa doble. Frankly that is not the right way to get ready to fight a 5'10" Ukranian with a history of knocking people out".
