Does anyone think this fight is a possibility and how do yuo think it would go down?
The result has opened the door to a possible future fight with Floyd Mayweather Junior, regarded as the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world.
Mayweather retired after beating legend Oscar de la Hoya in the richest fight in history last month.
But the Manchester ‘Hitman’ would jump at the chance to coax out him of retirement and took the opportunity of his victory to taunt the former world welterweight champion.
He said: "I knew I was in the groove for this one.
“There was more action in those four rounds than you’d have had in Floyd Mayweather’s last half-dozen fights.”
There is little love lost between the two fighters and Hatton recently revealed that the pair had clashed when they met in the audience at another fight.
He said: "Mayweather was sitting on the same row as me for the Jermain Taylor v Bernard Hopkins fight in 2005.
“I went to shake his hand and he said, ‘I’ll shake your hand when I’ve knocked you out’. I just thought: ‘Please yourself’. I wasn’t that bothered about shaking his hand anyway.”
On Friday Mayweather’s trainer and uncle Roger Mayweather said that a showdown between Hatton and his nephew would be “one of the biggest in the history of the sport”.
He said: "What Ricky has to do is win this fight, and then come up to where Floyd’s at with a truckload of money.
“He says he is retired, but enough money can bring a dead man out of the grave.”
