Hatton: 'Proudest achievement' was my fanbase

Former champion boxer Ricky Hatton said his proudest achievement was "the fanbase that I had", but admitted to feeling like he had "let down 30,000 people" when he lost to Floyd Mayweather.

In a frank interview about his boxing career, breakdown and rehabilitation, the former Light Welterweight and Welterweight champion said his depression was "about the size of a one pence piece" after losing to Mayweather in 2007.

He spiralled further into depression and alcohol abuse as his career and personal life crumbled.
