Hatton looks past Pacquiao, eyes megabuck fights with JMM, Floyd Jr

MANILA, Philippines – Ricky “Hitman" Hatton looks at his upcoming fight with Manny Pacquiao not only as a shot at the pound for pound title but as a stepping stone to more lucrative fights.

In an interview with News of the World, Hatton said he is eyeing a megabuck gig with lightweight king Juan Manuel Marquez and comebacking P4P superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. before he hangs up his gloves.

But that is if he gets past the Filipino ring idol on May at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

““If I beat Pacquiao, I’d like to fight Marquez. Then next summer I’d love an open-air fight at Wembley Stadium against Floyd Mayweather, Jr," Hatton told NOTW.

He did not say what his plans are in case of a loss to the Pac Man.

The 30-year-old Hatton envisions a Manchester bout with Marquez, who is currently ranked second in the latest P4P lists of Ring Magazine, Sports Illustrated and ESPN, that will generate £20 million. Even bigger, probably quadruple that amount, would be a second go at Mayweather, the man responsible for his lone setback, at Wembley. Mayweather, reportedly on the comeback trail from retirement to challenge the current P4P holder and/or wannabes, knocked out Hatton in 10 their welterweight showdown in 2007.

But then again, Pacquiao would surely have other plans that could spoil Hatton’s dream farewell outings. –GMANews.TV
