Former boxing champion Ricky Hatton has been refused entry to the US to commentate on the Mayweather v Maidana fight because of visa issues.

The 35-year-old was due provide commentary on the fight this weekend for the broadcaster BoxNation but was denied entry because of insufficient documents.

In a statement his solicitor said there is no indication that Hatton will not be able to travel in future.
