The fight features two undefeated welterweights with a combined record of 81-0. Mayweather, a six-division champion and boxing's pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, will face the British icon Hatton, a two-time world champion and universally recognized as the best junior welterweight in the world today. This will be the biggest match-up of two undefeated welterweights since the record-setting mega-fight between Oscar de la Hoya and Felix Trinidad in 1999.
Mayweather vs. Hatton is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions and supported by presenting sponsor Rockstar Energy Drink, and secondary sponsors Tecate Beer and Southwest Airlines.
