In an ungainly shoving match at a press conference last night, Ricky Hatton told Floyd Mayweather he was a dead man walking by drawing his finger across his throat.
Of course, Ricky didn’t literally mean he was going to sever Mayweather’s windpipe and jugular with a sharp blade, hence killing him. What he meant was he’s going to batter him on Saturday night (our Sunday morning).
In typical Hatton fashion, mild-mannered Ricky suggested the gesture was not meant to offend, merely to unnerve. Mayweather’s own use of mind games are well-documented.
In typical Hatton fashion, Ricky dismissed the incident saying he’d have a coffee and a crap and forget about it. Nicely put, Ricky.
