Despite being knocked out in the tenth round this past September at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr., Ricky Hatton has told Sport Relief he still wants a rematch. Hatton would like another chance but this time with a different referee.

Hatton, reveals the loss has been a hard pill for him to swallow. "It's a very difficult bitter pill for me to swallow losing my first fight," said Hatton.

Hatton added, "But I would fight him again, even though he knocked me out - just with a different referee."

Hatton says he and Mayweather Jr. have kept in touch with text messages and phone calls. Hatton said: "He has texted me a few times, and he has phoned me a few times, he wants to come over to Britain and watch one of my fights," said Hatton.

Hatton added: "He even said to me, although I have proved I am the best, what I wouldn't give to have the love of the fans like you have."

"Being the way Floyd is, it must have been hard for him to give me a compliment like that, but he has certainly gone up in my estimation."
