Hatton, who lost against Mayweather in 2007, says McGregor cannot beat his own performance, nor the performance of Oscar De La Hoya, or Canelo Alvarez, when fighting Mayweather.
I couldn’t hit him. Oscar [De La Hoya] couldn’t hit him. Canelo [Alvarez] couldn’t hit him. Conor’s not going to hit him. If he’s the UFC’s biggest name and he doesn’t lay a glove on Floyd — which no disrespect, I could actually see that happen — I think there is only one organisation that is going to come off worse or one sport. I am a boxer but I am fan of UFC. But if he is UFC’s biggest name and what I think happens in the fight, happens in the fight, it could be a bit embarrassing and I wouldn’t like to see that happen to Conor, because I love him to bits. I think he is good for sports, good for entertainment. If the truth be known, I would like Conor to splatter him. My heart says it but my mind says no, he probably wouldn’t [beat him].
