Hatton: I'd love to see McGregor flatten Floyd, but...

Former British boxing star Ricky Hatton said that in his heart, he wants Conor McGregor to win against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

But in his mind, he said, he knows there's little “The Notorious” could do to beat a pound-for-pound great like Mayweather.

In an interview with BT Sport, Hatton admitted being a big McGregor fan. He added that the MMA superstar from Ireland reminded him of himself during his younger years.

“I'm a Conor McGregor fan. I mean what's not to like about him? he's charismatic... he can punch. He's good for sports,” said the “Hitman.”

However, he pointed out that MMA, where McGregor excels, and boxing are two different sports.

Hatton, who lost to the cocky American via 10th round TKO, added that even elite fighters have a hard time catching a defensive virtuoso like Mayweather.
