Ricky Hatton will resume his pursuit of Floyd Mayweather should he overcome Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas on May 2.
Hatton suffered the only blemish on his 46-fight career in December 2007 when he was stopped in 10 rounds by Mayweather.
The 30-year-old from Manchester is eager for a rematch staged in the UK and also has his eye on WBA and WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez.
“There are plenty of good fights out there for me if I was to beat Pacquiao,” said Hatton.
“Juan Manuel Marquez wants to become the first Mexican to win titles at five different weights.
“There’s him and I’d be a liar if I said I don’t think I can get another crack at Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“Manny won’t be my last fight. Hopefully I’ll have a homecoming in the UK - against Marquez or Mayweather.”
Mayweather was regarded as pound-for-pound king when the rivals met at welterweight and Hatton gets a second shot at being considered the best when he meets Pacquiao.
It promises to be a thrilling contest between two aggressive fighters with Pacquiao starting as favourite.
But Hatton is adamant the Filipino superstar, who is revered as a national hero in his home country, is vulnerable.
“It’s a shame you can’t be inside me and see how confident I’m feeling,” he said.
“I know it will be tough but Ricky Hatton is an absolute handful.
“The reason why I think I’m going to win is that I’ve seen Manny drop to body shots from smaller men a few times.
“I’ve seen him shaken up by head punches. Bear in mind I’m the biggest fighter he will have fought against.”
Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer, has no interest in a clash with Mayweather.
“I didn’t want to fight Mayweather next because he’s a boring fight,” he said.
“We need the best fighters fighting each other because of other sports competing with us.
“If we win I don’t have a lot of interest in fighting Mayweather. Even if you beat him you look bad doing it.
“Mayweather is very skilled. I don’t like his style – he’s a runner but is a great boxer.”
