Representatives of Ricky Hatton will meet officials from the British Boxing Board of Control in the next 48 hours before applying for a licence for the two-weight world champion to resume his fighting career. The retired 33-year-old took to Twitter on Sunday to laugh off speculation about his return to the ring, but Sportsmail can reveal informal talks have already been held between the Hatton camp and the BBBC about the reinstatement of his licence with a follow-up discussion expected to take place on Monday or Tuesday.
