Floyd Mayweather drops a Bomb on Ricky Hatton! By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (Nov 25, 2008) DoghouseBoxing.com
It appears a bomb may have been dropped in Ricky Hatton's lap. According to a recent report by David Anderson of the Mirror UK, Ricky Hatton is in shock over his trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr's admittance that he may leave Hatton's side and go back to training Oscar De La Hoya.
Hatton who wants to face the winner of De La Hoya vs. Manny Pacquiao, could lose his trainer Mayweather Sr., because Mayweather Sr. will train which ever fighter offers him the most cash. In recent past,
Mayweather Sr. was De La Hoya's trainer and their relationship could easily be rekindled if the price is right.
Quoted by the Mirror UK, Mayweather Sr. stated: "I will train whoever pays me the most money. I don't know if it's the right fight for Ricky and I think Manny Pacquiao would be better. But it would be a winnable fight for Ricky if I trained him."
Oscar De La Hoya vs. Manny Pacquiao is set for December 6th. You can catch the fight live in person at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas or view it live on HBO Pay-Per-View.
