Lee Beard has taken up a training appointment in America and will no longer be connected with Hatton Promotions Ltd, Ricky Hatton or Matthew Hatton.
Lee has strong family connections in America and we fully understand his wish to move out there.
As far as Ricky is concerned he has not made any decision as to who will be replacing Floyd Mayweather senior as his trainer and he will address this issue on his return from holiday.
Matthew Hatton will continue his training for his fight at Fenton Manor, Stoke on the 19 February under the wing of Bob Shannon.
In the meantime Ricky, Matthew and everyone in the Hatton Camp wish Lee every success for the future.
