Please dont turn this into a Hatton bashing thread.:thumbsup:
Thoughts? some times fighters need a change to stay fresh.I still undecided.Ricky Hatton could be on the verge of splitting from Billy Graham.
The Hitman is reported to be considering his position with his long-time trainer following brother Matthew's decision last week to quit the Phoenix Camp.
It is not the first time there have been rumours of a rift between Hatton and Graham, but it is the first time the IBO light-welterweight champion has admitted their partnership could be in doubt.
"I will sit down with Matthew and my dad and have a good chat about it," Hatton told the Manchester Evening News.
"I will take my time and make a decision, and should be in a position to say something on it in a week or so.
"I have been on my stand-up tour and after-dinner speaking all over the place for the last few weeks, but obviously I heard about Matthew's decision."
Reports had suggested that Hatton was going to split from Graham following his knockout loss to Floyd Mayweather last December.
But the Preacher was in his corner for his successful Homecoming victory over Juan Lazcano in May - the night when younger brother Matthew failed to prise the Commonwealth welterweight title away from Craig Watson.
Matthew has since switched to Bobby Rimmer's gym where he will be trained by Graham's former assistant Lee Beard, who had a more prominent role in helping the Hitman prepare for Lazcano.
Ricky has around six weeks to make a decision on his trainer before he begins preparations for his November showdown with IBF light-welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi in Las Vegas.
