MANCHESTER, England (AP)-Retired English boxer Ricky Hatton has reached a settlement with a former trainer who sued him for $2.2 million over unpaid earnings.
Billy Graham claimed the former two-weight world champion owed him money from fights against Floyd Mayweather in 2007 and Juan Lazcano in 2008.
A joint statement released Wednesday on the third day of a hearing at Manchester's Civil Justice Centre said Hatton and Graham have "agreed to put their differences behind them and have ended the court proceedings on mutually acceptable terms."
Financial terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Graham trained Hatton for 45 fights, from 1997 to 2008.
