Ricky Hatton Death by Knife! Hitman speaks out on his Darkest Hours
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Sept 29, 2012)
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. In his darkest hours, Ricky Hatton has revealed that he contemplated ending his life. His losses to Manny Pacquiao and Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr., was hard on Hatton and he slipped into some serious depression. Hatton seriously contemplate ending his own life, luckily for himself, his family and his fans, he never had the courage to actually commit suicide.
Quoted recently by The Sun (a U.K. based media publication), Hatton spoke out on his darkest hour, stating:
"I was suicidal and very depressed but I didn’t take the full jump."
"Hitman" Hatton admitted there were nights he went to bed with a knife with the
intention of hurting himself. In the morning's his fiancee Jennifer
Dooley would find Hatton sitting on the couch and a knife on the floor.
"My fiancee Jennifer would come downstairs. I’d be on the sofa with a
knife on the floor," said Hatton who was quoted by the publication. He
added that he lacked the courage to end his life.
Well thank God
he never did! I've always been a great fan of Hatton... I'd hate it if he went out such a dark way. For me, It's actually not even easy reading that
these thoughts were consuming him in such a way... but I am glad he came clean and in doing so might be able to inspire others by telling his story, to get themselves some help. I wish I had the words
to inspire those who find themselves in similar dark places like
Hatton... I don't. I do know that help and love is out there and that
