Where do Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali rank among the best boxers of all time?

Britain's Press Association says Ray Hatton, 61, was arrested by police on suspicion of common assault of his son and given a caution.

The incident occurred outside a gym in Manchester on Thursday, the day before the younger Hatton announced he was coming out of retirement, more than three years after his last fight.

Police say the 33-year-old Hatton wasn't injured in the incident with his father.

Hatton won world titles in the welterweight and light-welterweight divisions and has a 45-2 record.
