Warren & The Hattons to do business?
Frank Warren has settled his High Court libel action against Ray Hatton, the father of IBO light-welterweight champion Ricky Hatton.
As part of the agreement, Warren and the Hattons will sit down and discuss working together in the future.
The case was due to be heard by a jury in London with a 10-day trial starting today, and was related to comments made by Hatton snr in 2005.
Warren alleged Hatton snr libeled him on BBC Radio Manchester on September 1, 2005, and the BBC sports website on October 17, 2005.
But Mr Justice Eady told a jury that their services would no longer be required as Warren and Hatton snr had settled the case.
Outside court Warren welcomed the development.
An agreed statement read: "In respect of the action today between Frank Warren, Ray Hatton and the BBC, which was due to commence today, Frank Warren has agreed to cease his action against Ray Hatton on the basis that both Ray Hatton and Frank Warren have agreed to enter into discussions with respect to Ricky Hatton's future fights."
Warren's lawyers said a libel action against the BBC was on-going, although they were confident of settling that case as well.
Warren added: "I am glad that we are sitting down and the matters are behind us.
"Ray Hatton, Ricky Hatton and myself are going to meet. That tells you from my point of view we may be in a position where we do some future business."
