The photo was reportedly taken two weeks ago in a hotel room in Manchester, England where the boxer was also said drinking heavily.

British boxing star Ricky Hatton is at the center of a drug scandal after he was caught on camera allegedly snorting cocaine. In one of the photos obtained by Britain's News of the World, the former WBA Welterweight Champion can be seen pouring a white powder on a tabletop and cutting it into lines with a credit card before leaning over and snorting it.

The images are believed to have been taken just two weeks ago in a hotel room in Manchester, England when Hatton was attending a cage-fighting event with Emma Bowe, the Irish national senior women's boxing champion. Bowe claims Hatton, nicknamed The Hitman, was also drinking heavily and admits she's seriously concerned for his health.

She explains, "I'm only talking about this because Ricky is a danger to himself. If he carries on like this he'll kill himself. I'm really, really worried for him, especially if he tries to make a comeback in the ring as he's hinted - he could have a heart attack... I'm doing this for Ricky's own good. I hope he gets help and advice before cocaine destroys him."
