Just been on Hatton's website & it states that it's press people only for the press conferences. Even states that a press pass, proof of ID will be required.

I was going to the London press conference, but after seeing the above, won't bother now. Shame really, but if you were to go & unable to get in, then that would just be such a disappointment.

I'm not going to chance it. Seems us fans always miss out, & that the average journalist, who knows shit about boxing, is always favoured above us as they're allowed entry.

I know there has to be press coverage & rightly so, but half of them have never even been to a boxing gym, let alone had anything to do with the sport. Only the boxing journalists, not the sports journalists, truly know about boxing.

The whole point of the Manchester conference was supposedly to give Floyd a glimpse of the kind of atmosphere he will be facing come December, it seems the plan has failed drastically.

How closely are you related to Floyd?
