Mayweather went onto stop Hatton in the 10th round to defend his titles and during a recent U.K tour, the ex-pound-for-pound king spoke about his former foe.
"What's the song y'all sang? Give me the song," he asked. "Man, I loved the crowd. I loved when the UK crowd came over and sung the song. It was remarkable, unbelievable.
"But when it comes down to it, it comes down to the two competitors.
"Heart, that kid got heart... But I don't care how many punches a fighter throws at me. You can throw a handful of confetti at me, I got the best defence.
"Ricky Hatton is a warrior, I've had more experience with bigger fighters, stronger fighters, faster fighters, but Ricky Hatton is no pushover. One thing about him, he'll fight anybody."
