Hatton has lost just once in 46 fights
Ricky Hatton is promising his fans "a barnstorming fight" in his light-welterweight showdown against Paulie Malignaggi in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Hatton will be back at the MGM Grand Arena where he lost his unbeaten record to Floyd Mayweather last year.
"I'll be all over him like a rash. I won't be taking any backward steps.
"The day Ricky Hatton fans leave a fight without being entertained is the day I hang up my gloves," he said.
Hatton dropped back down a division after his defeat to Mayweather in the 10th round of their WBC welterweight bout last December.
And Hatton says returning to the scene of that defeat is hard.
"Whenever I walk through the MGM Grand the first thing that will go through my mind will be Floyd Mayweather knocking me out, but there is not shame in that," he added.
"He was the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, possibly of all time, but this training camp has made my confidence go right through the roof and I am not thinking about the Mayweather fight.
"I can understand why people have maybe said Ricky Hatton is past his best but I think they might be writing a new script come Saturday.
"I'm still going to be the same old aggressive Ricky Hatton but I have polished my performance a bit in some areas and I expect that to be the difference come Saturday."
