Mayweather-Hatton in 2006?
Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears to be targeting unified 140-lb champ Ricky Hatton. "The fact Floyd's fight against [Zab] Judah is off means a fight against Hatton is much bigger now and much easier to make. Floyd wants it, but he isn't going to fight in front of Hatton's home crowd," Roger Mayweather, Floyd's trainer told BBC Sport.

Mayweather-Judah not dead!
There is still interest from promoters and HBO executives in staging an April 8 showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Zab Judah. Judah's shock loss to Carlos Baldomir on January 7 took some of the luster off the proposed matchup, but he may just get a pass from that lackluster performance as boxing powerbrokers believe Zab lost mainly because he was not focused or motivated for that bout. That isn't expected to be a problem against Mayweather. It isn't unprecedented when a popular fighter is upset, that he still moves into a big fight soon after. 'El Terrible' Erik Morales himself is coming into next weekend's superfight with Manny Pacquiao after dropping an HBO-televised showcase fight against Zahir Raheem and that event is doing big business. Also, who can forget Julio Cesar Chavez' shocking loss in a tuneup to unrated Willy Wise in 1999? He not only got his title shot against Kostya Tszyu a few months later, but kept his #1 WBC ranking.
