Lee Beard set to train Joan Guzman



Joan Guzman (29-0) is set to be trained by 'former' Hatton trainer Lee Beard for his next fight is has been confirmed today.

The unbeaten 33-year old auditioned some of boxing's top trainers for the role, but felt that the Manchester man was the best suited to polish his already world-class skills.

Meanwhile Team Hatton felt 'disgruntled' by Beard's opportunity to work with one of boxing's most talented fighters.

Reports in today's Daily Mail indicate that Ricky was angry that Beard had gone to audition for the role as Guzman's trainer, rather than train his brother for his scheduled fight in Stoke this month.

Bob Shannon is believed to be taking over the training duties of Ricky and Matthew in the future.
