Hatton credits Mayweather Sr. for getting him back in shape

MANILA, Philippines – Ricky Hatton’s weight problems are a thing of the past, no thanks to the training he endured under Floyd Mayweather Sr.

The “Hitman’s" fluctuating weight is a well-documented event in Britain since Hatton regularly gains a few pounds in between fights.

But after completing the British leg of his preparations for his May 2 fight against Manny Pacquiao, Hatton says he feels fitter than ever. “My weight is right down, I'm in great shape. Ricky “Fatton" has disappeared."

“I've never been as down on my weight. I’m pretty much at the weight – 154lbs – which I will be on the night. As the fight gets nearer I will get faster, sharper and more explosive," said the reigning IBO light-welterweight champion in an interview with British website

Hatton said Mayweather was instrumental in whipping him into shape that helped restore his career.

He added that he rather wants to be ahead of schedule than fall behind with his training. “It is great being ahead of schedule in that it gives you a luxury. I’d rather be ahead now than chasing it later on."

“I have to be careful I don't over-cook it but I – and Floyd – are too long in the tooth, boxing-wise, to let that happen."

Hatton scored a convincing win against Paulie Malignaggi in November with Mayweather’s help. – GMANews.TV
