BRIT Ricky Hatton surrendered his unbeaten boxing record to opponent Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas but vowed “Ricky Hatton is not finished”.

Mayweather forced a 10th-round stoppage in an eagerly anticipated WBC welterweight fight by flooring Hatton to extend his unbeaten record to 39 fights.

Hatton told Sky Box Office: “Knock me down but I keep coming back, Ricky Hatton is not finished.”

The Stockport-born fighter said: “My pride is hurt more than the punches hurt.

“I thought I fought well. I was forcing it but maybe he's very good at making you miss. I thought I was in the fight but he had a good round, he was better inside than I thought and he got me.”
