Hatton-Mayweather part two
'Pretty Boy' to put his undefeated record on the line again
Ricky Hatton and Floyd Mayweather look set to renew their rivalry at Wembley in Spring 2009.
The American, who is set to take on the Big Show at WrestleMania XXIV on Sunday night, is set for a rematch against 'The Golden Boy' Oscar de la Hoya first in September.
If the two US fighters meet and Mayweather emerges victorious then a showdown with Hatton could be on the cards.
Hatton is due to fight Mexican Juan Lazcano in Manchester on 24th May but a rematch with the Pretty Boy is being lined up in England next year.
Mayeather brought an end to the 'Hitman's' undefeated record in Las Vegas at the turn of the year, but Hatton was fighting at welterweight rather than light-welter which suits his stature better.
And Richard Schaefer, the chief executive of Golden Boy promotions, has revealed that discussions over luring Mayweather to London have already begun.
"It's very likely that Floyd will come over next spring. Floyd and his manager Al Hayman are very serious about it," said Schaefer.
"The first fight was great and while Floyd would have to get past Oscar first, he knows that Ricky has talked about the referee.
"He wants to show that he will repeat what happened the first time. That's his motivation.
"Floyd realises that Hatton is the most beloved fighter in the world and for him to come over to Wembley Stadium is making history.
"For Ricky it's about challenges and it's the same for Floyd. Fighting in front of 100,000 fans would be huge motivation for Floyd."
