According to The Mirror, Ricky Hatton has been forced to halt his training camp for Juan Lazcano after coming down with an illness. The fight takes place on May 24 in Manchester. It's being reported as a chest infection.

The infection made Hatton weak and unable to spar, resulting in his sparring partners being sent home. He's taking a second course of antibiotics and has been told to rest by his doctor, but he is determined to move forward with the Lazcano bout. Last year Hatton was in a similiar situation. He came down with the flu and still went forward with the Juan Urango bout, winning a twelve-round decision to capture the IBF junior welterweight title.

A source close to the camp told the paper that Hatton has lost valuable sparring time.

"He has lost valuable sparring time and his sparring partners have been sent home - there's nothing for them to do. Ricky has been asked if he wants to postpone the fight but, typical of him, he wants to go ahead with it. He says he has never pulled out of a fight and does not want to start now."

Hattons scared! Hes trying to get out of the fight! HAHAHA:laugh:
ha ha! if hatton is willing to move forward with the fight despite his illness then the illness isn't all that bad. that and the fact that lazcano isn't really a threat.

And at least it's not come a couple of days before the fight, so he has a little bit of time to recover

Vitali could learn a thing or two here, if this was him there would be another 4 year retirement. LOL!

I read this too. Wasn't it a chest infection he had prior to the Urango bout too? This may effect him in the later rounds but this fight shouldn't go that far.

Yep it was indeed. This'll make him even more determined to take him out early.

I think theres a good chance Hatton could just come out and school Lazcano with his boxing ability now, much like he did urango.

If the infection is bad no way he will be in peak condition for the 24th. Those infections realy leave you weak.
