‘Hitman’ plans two more fights after Pacquiao

MANILA, Philippines – British boxer Ricky Hatton plans to have two more fights after his bout with Manny Pacquiao before finally hanging up his gloves hoping to end his career as boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighter.

Hatton will face Pacquiao, the reigning pound-for-pound king, on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and hopes to fight Juan Manuel Marquez, who is ranked second in the list, later this year.

“I would like to finish the year off fighting Juan Manuel Marquez – he's number two in the pound-for-pound ratings – and in doing that and establishing myself as number one," Hatton said in an interview with British news website Evening Standard.

Hatton believes beating Pacquiao and Marquez would give him the chance for a possible rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr., the only boxer who beat him. “I'd like to think I'd get a rematch with Mayweather."

Mayweather, who ended Hatton’s 43-match winning streak with a 10th round TKO in 2007, plans to get out of retirment and is looking for a megabuck deal among the sport's top draws. Hatton wants to capitalize on Mayweather’s planned return and is seeking for a rematch.

He, however, is currently focused training for his match against Pacquiao. “Those three fights will see me to the end of my career. But I can't look at Marquez or Mayweather yet as I’m fighting Pacquiao."

Helping him prepare against Pacquiao is Floyd Sr., Mayweather’s father. “Floyd (Sr.) has brought my boxing ability back, got me using my jab."

Hatton said he is comfortable with the older Mayweather’s training style. “When you think of the improvements in the Paulie Malignaggi fight – we were only together seven weeks and for the first two or three we had to get used to each other." – GMANews.TV
