Frank Warren Lands Further Blow To Libel Case
On 16 July 2008, Frank Warren dealt a further blow in his ongoing libel case against Random House over allegations published in the book "Ricky Hatton: The Hitman, My Story". Three court of appeal judges dismissed the publisher's attempts to amend its case over one of the three false allegations, which is that Mr Warren misled the boxer Vince Phillips about the sale of the television rights for his fight against Ricky Hatton..

Random House has already admitted that this allegation is false and defamatory and on 4 October 2007 apologised to Mr Warren in open court for including this allegation in its book.
It sought to re-instate this allegation into the case, which attempt has now been rejected by the high court on 5 December 2007 and again [today] by the court of appeal.
The case continues to trial which commences on 1 December 2008.
