LAS VEGAS, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Floyd Mayweather retained his WBC welterweight title by besting Ricky Hatton with a technical knockout at 1:35 in a 10-round fight in Las Vegas.

"Pretty Boy" Mayweather (39-0) sent "Hitman" Hatton (43-1) to the mat Saturday night with a hook to the left cheek.

Seconds later, Mayweather, 30, who has 25 KOs, put Hatton down for the count with a left hook to Hatton's head.

It was the biggest matchup of two undefeated welterweights since Oscar De La Hoya fought Felix Trinidad in 1999.
