RICKY HATTON has blasted Kell Brook for teasing him and his family while romping to victory against his younger brother.

The unbeaten WBA intercontinental welterweight champion easily outpointed Matthew Hatton over 12 rounds at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday night.

Brook, 25, was in complete control against the IBF international title holder when he spotted former world light-welterweight champion Ricky, his parents and Matthew’s partner Jenna Coyne at ringside.

Ricky said: “Kell was winning the fight by a mile, but in the eleventh round he winked at my family. It was not nice. Jenna, myself and the close family saw it and it was in really bad taste. As far as the fight went, the Hatton family would like to wish Kell all the best for the future.”
