Ricky Hatton's mum says she hasn't heard from the boxing legend for six months over their alleged feud over 'mission millions'.
The Hitman, 45, was the subject of a Sky documentary released in September. It looked back on his life in and out of the ring and featured interviews with his parents Carol, 70, and Ray, 72.
They were given an early viewing of the doc in May – and were disheartened to discover one of the topics covered was allegations made by Hatton's former trainer Billy Graham, who accused his dad of short-changing him back in 2008.

An out-of-court agreement was reached for his £1.4m claim against dad Ray, who was his son's manager and therefore in charge of his finances.
The matter resurfacing has reignited a family fallout which previously saw Hatton not speak to his parents for seven years from 2012 and 2019.
They're now not in contact again, with Carol telling the Daily Mail: "He was never The Hitman to us, just our son, Richard. Realising his future doesn't include his parents is the sad realisation. We both miss him is an understatement."
It's taken a toll on her mental health. "I had to get in touch with a counsellor and I actually told her, 'I feel like I want to do something silly or be really, really poorly so he would come back and see me'," she candidly revealed.
"I think the remark that really upset me, as his mum, was when somebody asks him, 'And how much are we talking about?' in terms of money that allegedly went missing and Richard turns around and says, 'millions'," Carol added.

The money dispute led to Hatton and his dad fighting in a car park 11 years ago. He eventually reconciled with his family, previously explaining to the Manchester Evening News that he was fearful of them dying before he had the chance to do so.
Hatton said: "A few of my school friends are the same age as me, their parents were having heart attacks and I was going to their funerals. And I thought to myself, 'I'm 40 now, I'm at an age where our parents might not be here much longer'."
But now the wounds have re-opened and Ray and Carol haven't seen their son since despite living just five minutes apart. "In an ideal world I'd like him to do what he originally did when he first came back into our lives," an emotional Carol said.
"He just knocked on the door and said, 'put kettle on, mum'. But if he doesn't have a heart-to-heart with his father, then we're still back to square one."
Daily Star Sport has contacted representatives of Ricky Hatton for comment.
