Hatton blamed Graham for the defeat and his **** 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.
It was Ray that did'nt want to pay up as Ricky has always bleated financial ignorence along with having absolutly no knowlage of the Mayweather/Hatton ticket rip-off. Usual case of the scumbag legal proffesion whispering sweet words of certain victory into Rays ears & after both barristers had ****ed up a stonking great bill both barristers sat down over a champagne lunch & said right!! this is what we'll do!! Hatton never had a leg to stand on & hence the usual last minute out of court settlement with billys costs thrown in.
The last thing Ray hatton would have wanted was the judge to order a forensic examination of money's recieved & disposed of
& under oath who knows what would have been weedled out of the hatton camp regarding finances. This is why Hatton's barristers no doubt told him to hit the ****in life raft & rapid before they got sunk
Not before they'd cleamed a lorry load of £££££££££££ for such sage advise
