Not sure they settled out of court on the day Hatton was supposed to go to court for unpaid wages to Billy, I doubt they speak now, wonder how much Ricky paid Billy in the end?

Ricky has done well with that then cos I was sure he said he didnt get paid for the Last fight they had together either. I thought he wanted 10% of everything so 500k Ricky has nto done to bad for two fights he probably made 15-20 million.

I think the idea was that Graham was paid on a 10% level which for a fighter of Hattons pulling power was a bit unusual as a trainer would be on about 100k set fee per fight.

I think it was for the Lazcano fight that he wasnt paid for so 500k was a decent result for Graham tbh imo. He is probably fairly well off if he was earning 10% on all HAttons fights.

yep buy life doesn't have a fairytale ending
by watching hbo 24/7 you'd think that they were inseparable considering how young ricky was when he joined him

i think trainers getting 10% goes out the window when they get the really big bucks and just work for a set fee

It obviously does.... but really it ought to be agreed prior to the fight.

Clearly Hatton and Graham had a relationship where a contract wasn't really necessary..... if Hatton had beaten Floyd I'm sure Graham would have gotten his 10% as per.

Hatton blamed Graham for the defeat and his crap showing against Lazcano and didn't want to pay up.... Hatton was right not to want to pay 10% and Graham was right to sue him over it. Obviously like mature adults they agreed a compromise and walked away.
