Countdown to Mayweather v Hatton: Cortez to referee Hatton-Mayweather fight
Published 04/12/2007 | 12:09
Saturday's WBC welterweight showdown between Ricky Hatton and Floyd Mayweather will be refereed by Joe Cortez.
The veteran Puerta Rican was the man in the middle for Hatton's stoppage of Jose Luis Castillo in the summer.
Hatton was forced to make a frantic ring-around last night after local rumours that the fight had been cancelled due to an injury to his opponent.
Mayweather skipped a training session at the weekend due to hand problems, but the fight is still on.
