Ricky Hatton Looking to Face Juan Manuel Marquez, Mayweather Jr. after Beating Manny Pacquaio

Ricky Hatton has expressed his interest to take on Floyd Mayweather, Jr in 2010 Summer in England. In fact, the star British fighter is gearing up to avenge for his defeat at the hands of Floyd Mayweather, Jr in 2007 in America. However, before facing Mayweather, the only boxer who could defeat Hatton so far in professional circuit, Ricky Hatton would like to face Juan Manuel Marquez, only if he can defeat Manny Pacquaio in a much-awaited junior welterweight bout scheduled to take place in May.

Well, it is not yet confirmed if Mayweather, Jr would return to boxing in July. If he really makes a come back in July, Juan Manuel Marquez is reportedly the most likely opponent for the American. If Marquez lines up to face Mayweather Jr in July, Hatton would not be able to face the Mexican boxer in July, and thus, he would have to face Mayweather Jr. at the end of this year in stead of Summer 2010.
