Over a decade ago both Floyd Mayweaher and Ricky Hatton battled it it out in the boxing ring and years on one of the two is being linked with an odd venture into MMA.
Mayweather got the world talking last week with a video of him jumping around in an MMA cage.

Ricky Hatton while in attendance for the launch of the Ultimate Boxxer today in London said he is not convinced of it however.
