By Rick Reeno

Ricky Hatton, who officially retired earlier this year, spoke to BoxingScene.com about the potential mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Hatton closed his superstar career with 45 wins, 32 knockouts and only 2 defeats - which came to Mayweather and Pacquiao.

Although it took Mayweather ten rounds to stop him, and Pacquiao blew him out with a brutal knockout in two, Hatton is very firm in his belief that Mayweather's style gives him the edge over Pacquiao.

BoxingScene.com: Ricky, you retired with only two defeats, to the two best fighters in the sport. If you had to pick a winner between Pacquiao and Mayweather, Who would you pick?

I've always thought Floyd would win. I love Manny Pacquiao. I have more in common with Manny Pacquiao than Mayweather, but I have to give credit where credit is due. He's not on my Christmas card list [Mayweather] but I think he'll win.

BoxingScene.com: Did your opinion get influenced at all by Pacquiao's recent struggle with Juan Manuel Marquez?

Even before the Marquez fight I thought that [Mayweather would win]. The opinion has not changed. I love Manny Pacquiao, he's a nice guy. Mayweather is not up my street as a person, but credit where credit is due. I think he's an all-time great.

BoxingScene.com: What gives Mayweather the edge in this fight?

Floyd is a thinking fighter, a very calculating fighter and quick.

[QUOTE=DonCarlos83]People who like wild brawling and FIGHTING always pick Pacquiao. They probably also love MMA & UFC and probably WWE (nothing wrong with that, just saying). People who recognise boxing as sport or even a science know that Mayweather is one of the all time greats. Based purely on...

[QUOTE=HattonFaithful]How is having an opinon on a fight being biased, just because he didn't choose the way that you think the fight will play out doesn't mean he's biased. On another note, I'm still baffled by the hate that Hatton gets on this site, He's one of the greatest British fighters EVE...
