Manny Pacquiao has rubbished Ricky Hatton's claims that he has become a new fighter under trainer Floyd Mayweather Senior.

Hatton hooked up with Mayweather seven months ago and says the fast-talking American has taught him some new tricks.

But Pacquiao is not worried and doubts that Mayweather has been able to add any finesse to the Hitman's brawling style in such a short time together in the gym.

"I believe a fighter can change his style, but not right away," said the world poundfor-pound king.

"It takes more time than they have had together to change your style. "In my career, I don't want to change my style. I just want to apply some techniques to improve my style.

I believe I am improving." 'Pacman' has arrived in Las Vegas ahead of Saturday's light-welterweight showdown at the MGM Grand and claims he and trainer Freddie Roach have figured out a game-plan to beat Hatton.

The Brit has never lost at 140lbs, but Pacquiao believes his faster hands will bring him victory.

"For me, this is not a regular fight," said the Filipino. "I consider this fight to be the toughest of my boxing career. After all, Hatton is undefeated at 140 pounds.

"Ricky Hatton is a kind of different fighter to what I have been fighting before. He's a good and strong fighter. I know he has a very strong left hand and I have to take care of that and focus on that.

"I've studied a lot of techniques for him. I don't want to tell anyone what exactly.

I want to keep it a surprise what we have been doing in training and we believe we have worked out a strategy to win. I don't care if he's bigger or stronger.

Boxing is more than that. "It's also mental and about the quickness of your mind and quickness of your body.

"That's very important. Speed is the key."
