Ricky Hatton has unleashed searing attack on Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, branding him a ‘d***head’.
The Manchester born fighter was vocal with his criticism of the world's pound-for-pound best, according to the Daily Mail, stating: "What’s the point of being the world’s best fighter if everyone thinks you’re a d***head?"
Mayweather's reign continues
Having just beat Manny Pacquiao in a long overdue fight Mayweather increased his unbeaten record to 48-0. Hatton, who was knocked out in the 10th round by Mayweather when the pair fought back on 2007, was unhappy at the behaviour of Mayweather during their fight's promotion.
The former welterweight world champion claimed ‘Money’ stepped to far after he told Hatton: ‘'I'm going to beat you like a bitch, butt-f*** you."
Hatton also revealed that during a flight from Michigan to New York he was informed by his pilot that Mayweather was arguing with his own pilot, telling him to over take Hatton’s jet 30,000ft in the air.
"A few minutes into the journey, we're chatting away, having a drink when the pilot gestures to me to come forward. Hey Ricky, listen to this idiot," Hatton revealed.
"He turns on the speaker and over the radio I hear Floyd arguing with the pilot of his plane behind: I'm not letting that motherf***** get there before me, f***ing overtake them!
"Overtake that motherf***** - I'm the champ. I've got to get to New York first. I'll pay whatever you want."
Hatton’s revelations come as Mayweather has ruled out a rematch with Pacquiao once he recovers from an injury on his shoulder which he claimed restricted him in the ‘fight of the century’.
Mayweather told Showtime’s Jim Grey that he thinks Pacquiao is using his shoulder problem as an excuse for losing the high profile bout.
