`Drug addict` Hatton says meeting Mike Tyson was `therapy` for him
London – Ricky Hatton has been knocked out by a heart to-heart with former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson with Hatton saying that they have had similar problems with drinks and drugs.
According to the Daily Star, the pair met in Paris this week after Tyson was banned from entering the UK.
Hatton, who has had problems with drink and drugs, admitted it was a therapeutic session for both ex-champions who hit the skids after struggling to cope, the report said.
He said that it was amazing to listen to Tyson and he learnt a lot, adding that it was unbelievable as the talk did both of them plenty of good.
Hatton, 35, retired in November last year after a 48-fight career in which he lost three times, the report added.
