Ex-trainer Billy Graham has actually gone through with his threat to sue Ricky Hatton for £1 million. Graham claims he is still owed money from Hatton's 2007 clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his 2008 bout with Juan Lazcano, the last two fights the pair worked together. The trainer says he has been paid £530K, but that's less than the ten percent they agreed to.

I really hope someday Hatton and Graham can come together again -- not professionally so much as just personally, the two were friends for 13 years. Right now though it's clearly a 100% soured relationship.

  • AJ Banal (19-1-1, 16 KO) stopped Mbwana Matumla (18-4, 10 KO) at 2:59 of the second round. Ronnie Nathanielsz says he's looking at a spot on the Mayweather-Marquez undercard now.
  • Jorge Arce has hired Nacho Beristain to train him for his next fight. He may fight Dmitri Kirilov on June 20.
  • Belfast was not kind to James DeGale last night, booing the ex-Olympian despite the fact that he scored a stoppage at just 2:22 of the first round. The immediate backlash on DeGale seems more than a little harsh and unnecessary, honestly. Yeah, he talks too much, but he's also making an effort to stop that and to try and be more aggressive as a fighter. Some fans are weird, man.
