Hatton told the UK newspaper The Sun:

Now he’s beaten Oscar De La Hoya, I’d love Manny Pacquiao to come down and fight me.

“He’s the best in the world right now and I’m unbelievably confident a showdown can be arranged.

“I’m not surprised Floyd is considering a return — but I’d be disappointed if he got in ahead of me.

“I’ve put the hard work in and would like to get the chance to take on Manny.

“If I win that fight, then I could strike a deal for a rematch with Mayweather. But that’s some way down the line.”
