Hatton wants his next fight to be in Britain, and now has even more barginning power with HBO who want his signatute again now his contract has expired. Will Gayrunner agree to that? Highly unlikely I'd say. So when Hatton agrees to fight, say, Malignaggi in Manchester, Gayrunner will claim Ricky's ducking him. You read it here first folks!!

If Floyd fights Hatton, I will be very surprised. I just don't see it happening, but if it does I think Hatton loses and badly. I don't think he gets stopped but totally outclassed.
If however somehow Hatton managed to win, all the haters would say that Mayweather was weight drained and had been inactive, it is typical of Hatton to pick to fight such an opponent.

Which is a shame. as Hatton throughout his career was labelled as protected in the UK. Wouldn't get any credit until he fought overseas. Shame PBF, Mosley and Malignaggi wont fight overseas for this one.

Don't forget old and over the hill, completely past his prime...I mean 30 years old. Castillo was 33 and the way it's made out, came out of a retirement home to find Hatton. And Tszyu at 35, a title holder and demolisher of Harris in 3 rounds, was a geriatric.

Mayweather is past it, I wish Hatton would take on a real challenge.

It's even LESS neutral territory than Hatton v Mayweather in Wales!!

Hatton for his part, seems willing enough to travel and take on challenges.Floyd used to, but is becoming a Roy Jones style prima donna.Not to say Hatton would beat Floyd, on the contrary, Mayweather would pummel Hatton probably, but i'd still rather see that than Mayweather take on more old guys for the big bucks.

Europeans dont have to go, but USA is the mecca of boxing, if they want to get rich and famous they will need to travel to the us, there is only so much they can achieve here in the uk.

A fight at Wembley would get 95,000 pissed singing fans packed in, and would be screened worldwide.

At NYMSG, it will be more like another Elton John concert.
