'Disagreement' ... dad Ray and boxer Ricky Hatton

FORMER boxing champ Ricky Hatton’s dad was arrested for attacking his SON following a bust-up in a gym car park.

Hatton, 33, had to protect himself after dad Ray, 61, attacked him during a heated row.

Hatton Snr went for the boxer — nicknamed The Hitman — after confronting him. It is believed they argued about Ricky’s decision to fight again and issues over his previous lifestyle.

Shocked bystanders looked on outside Ricky’s gym in Hyde, Greater Manchester, on Thursday morning.

A witness said: “Ricky and his dad haven’t really talked for two years. Ray isn’t happy about Ricky’s lifestyle. Ray had gone to confront his son. There was a dispute in the car park seen by quite a few people. Ray took a swipe at him.”

Cops were called and arrested Hatton Snr, 61, on suspicion of assault. He was taken to a police station and cautioned then released.

Last night a pal of Ricky said he wanted to press charges. Ray, who lives with Ricky’s mum Carol in Hyde, refused to comment. Ricky’s agent did not respond to requests for comment.

Yesterday Hatton announced he was coming out of retirement, saying: “I want British boxing to be proud of me again.” Earlier this week Ray said: “Me and my wife have our feelings about it.”

- ACTOR Burt Reynolds has revealed his father once punched him so hard he blacked out. The 76-year-old said: “It was for cussing my mother.”

I understand Burt's father's knuckles were treated for mustache burn.

Well played. Reynolds old man vs Hattons old man, who wins and why (both in their middle-aged prime of course)

Ray's a greedy little fucker, he would of caught wind of the comeback and wanted in on the action, Hatton probably told him to do one.

Dunno why, but he just should.
