Shattered Hatton told to retire after devastating defeat

Ricky Hatton, who underwent a brain scan following his calamitous defeat by Manny Pacquiao, is being advised to quit boxing.

Freddie Roach, mentor of the Filipino fighter, said: ‘Ricky should call it a day.

'He is well off, he has his family and he doesn’t need to go through anything like this again.

'Very few fighters are ever the same after taking a knockout this bad.

'This was devastating.’

Hatton’s trainer, Floyd Mayweather Snr, was expecting to be fired after a training camp bust-up with the Manchester fighter just before the fight and he made his departure inevitable on Sunday.

‘Ricky lost because he didn’t do what I told him,’ he said.

‘He didn’t keep his hands up. I also told him not to fight so aggressively from the start.

'I can’t fight for him. He should retire.’

But Roach added: ‘I’d been watching the tapes of Ricky for weeks and every fight is the same. He’ll never change.’

Hatton spent just over an hour in hospital and was given the all-clear after his scan, but will delay any decision about his future until he has a chance to review this fight.

He admitted: ‘I was hit a lot. The last punch which put me out was a great shot.

'I know I’ll be OK. I have felt worse after 12 tough rounds.’
