Warren: "Tszyu Jumped The Gun on Hatton Fight"

By Rick Reeno

Ricky Hatton promoter Frank Warren has stated to the UK press that the mega bout between Ricky Hatton and Kostya Tszyu is not a done deal, Warren appears to be quite pissed at the Tszyu camp for announcing that the fight was a done deal to the press. Warren claims that no contracts have been signed and the venue/the time have not been agreed upon. Warren was really up in arms when he got wind of the Tszyu camp planning a press conference today in order to announce the fight.

"It feels good that a deal has been done for my next fight. It gives me focus for the year ahead. I'm excited to be fighting Ricky because I believe he is a worthy challenger. This is the fight I want to see, so I look forward to putting on a good show for them."  said Tszyu on his personal website.

Promoter Frank Warren was less then pleased with the comments made by Tszyu.

"It is totally amateur, and I am pissed off about it. They say they are calling a press conference in Australia to talk about a fight that is not yet done. I would have thought that I might know whether or not this fight is happening, because I am the one who is putting up the money, and I assure you that I have signed for nothing." said Warren 

"There are still issues that need to be resolved, and we should have a proper agreement in place before fans are told that the fight is going to happen. The one good thing about Tszyu jumping the gun is that it shows he has decided he will fight Ricky after talking about wanting to face people like Oscar de la Hoya.
