Manny Pacquiao's famed trainer Freddie Roach is stating that talk for fight with his fighter and Ricky Hatton is serious, but the focus is David Diaz first. Pacquiao takes on Diaz later this month on the 28th.

Quoted in a column by Ronnie Nathanielsz and published by ABS-CBN, Roach stated in regards to Pacquiao vs Hatton: "The thing is we have to win before talking about Hatton. We got to knock this guy (Diaz) out. I know Manny can do it”.

Pacquiao recently told Ring magazine that he wants to fight Hatton after Diaz, telling the publication: "After Diaz, I want to fight Ricky Hatton. That will be a good fight."

Pacquiao's record stands at 46-3-2, and Diaz's record is 34-1-1.
