30th March 2010

To whom it may concern.

On 11 November 2009 in an interview with Sun journalist Matt Bendoris, I said that promoters I had boxed for had ripped me off, not paid me what I was worth, misled me and not protected my interests. I am happy to make it clear that I was not in any way referring to Frank Warren or my previous dealings with Frank and I apologise if anyone might have thought otherwise.

Yours sincerely
Ricky Hatton

Warren said today; “Once again, I am delighted that quotes made by Ricky Hatton have been clarified by him and any suggested criticism of my dealings with him have been proven to be untrue. I am happy to accept Ricky Hatton’s clarification, damages and costs.”

Previously, Warren has won damages and costs against Publisher ‘Random House’ in relation to the autobiography of Hatton which was subsequently withdrawn from sale.
