Boxing news: Floyd Mayweather Vs. Ricky Hatton Agreed?

Big fight news from the world of boxing: Floyd Mayweather Vs. Ricky Hatton has reportedly been verbally agreed.
Ricky Hatton's trainer, Billy Graham, announced a verbal agreement between representatives of Hatton and Mayweather for a December super-fight in Las Vegas. Hatton's father Ray reportedly also confirmed this weekend that he had reached a "verbal agreement" with Mayweather's camp shortly after returning from a trip to Las Vegas to watch Bernard Hopkins' victory over Winky Wright. Ricky Hatton will try to become the first man to defeat Floyd Mayweather and establish himself as the number one pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

Contracts are expected to be signed in the coming days for a fight which is set to earn Hatton around £8million, and Mayweather much more. It is expected to take place on December 8 in Las Vegas.

Floyd Mayweather announced his retirement after his win over Oscar De La Hoya in May, but appears to have been tempted back into the ring following comments by Hatton.

Hatton's representatives will sign a one-fight deal with De La Hoya's 'Golden Boy' organisation to promote the fight.

This should be a reat fight. Let's hope all these reports are accurate.
