Ricky Hatton has been accused of pushing a holidaymaker to the floor, just days after denying allegations he punched and stamped another in Tenerife.

Police in Spain initially were examining reports of an alleged bar brawl in an Irish bar in the tourist hotspot.

Sandwich shop owner Stephen O’Hagan claims he was attacked by Hatton and three other men after making a joke about the former light-welterweight world champion’s football team, Manchester City.

But now another holidaymaker has claimed he was set upon by the former world boxing champion.

Daniel Culloty, from Birmingham, claims he was pushed to the ground after mocking Hatton’s karaoke singing.

Mr Culloty told the Sun on Sunday: “I was at the bar at around 1am and Hatton was there. He looked a f****** mess.

“He was pumped up for a fight that’s for sure. He gets so drunk he can barely stand. His eyes were all over the place.

“Just because he’s famous he thinks he can be an utter d***. If I’d put my hands on him I’d be dead.”

The other holidaymaker, Mr O’Hagan – who was on holiday with his wife and son – said he spent four days in hospital after being left with a broken jaw, eye socket, nose and wrist and lost several teeth.

But Hatton’s agent Paul Speak told Mirror Online the 37-year-old denies assaulting Mr O’Hagan and the ‘details’ of the allegations.

A statement said: “We are aware of certain allegations published about Mr Hatton today.

“Mr Hatton does not accept the detail of the allegations made. It is denied that Mr Hatton committed an assault.

“Given the nature of the allegations published as you might expect the matter will now be handled by Mr Hatton’s solicitors and we can therefore offer no further comment at this time.”

A Spanish police spokesperson said Hatton had been identified but not arrested following the alleged incident and that a police report will be sent for a judge to consider.

Hatton retired from boxing in 2012 after a failed comeback and now works as a promoter.

Last month, he sparked fears for his wellbeing after tweeting: “I have nothing left. Absolutely nothing.”

Manchester United fan Stephen told The Sun Hatton stamped on his head during the melee on August 13.

He said: “I said, for a bit of banter, ‘Are you ready for the football match tomorrow, you’re going to see some good football’ as it was the first game of the season for United.

“They turned me, put me down, stamped all over my head then chucked me out.”

“Hatton came out and I asked him, ‘Is that what you’ve come down to? There was no need for that.’

He just gave me dirty looks and set about me again. He sat on me and my head was his punchbag, nobody stopped him.”

Ricky Hatton’s agent Paul Speak had previously denied Hatton had assaulted Mr O’Hagan.

He declined to comment on the latest claims.
