Manny Pacquiao wasted no time in his fight with Ricky Hatton. Pacquiao’s right hand was just too strong in the first round and his left hand was too strong in the second as each hand took down the UK Boxing champ proving that Pacquiao is the greatest pound for pound fighter in the world. It only took Pacquiao six minutes to take down the challenger from the west. East wins again!

Two knockdowns by Pacquiao! Saved by the bell! 10-7 Pacquiao.
Round 2: Hatton trying to jab more. Still looks uncomfortable. Manny winging punches. Hatton trying to get inside. Hatton still jabbing. Hatton’s fans have been silenced. Manny jabbing and winging that right! Hatton warned for a low blow. Manny not hurt. Another hard right by Manny. Hatton is target practice. More rights by Manny. Just assaulting the champ!

  1. The Curious Case of the Beaten Briton Says:

    Today, we witnessed the Curious Case of the Beaten Briton. I mean, everybody knows that Hatton could lose to Pacquiao. What was very surprising was the manner to which he lost.

    BuzzerBeeser – thanks for the comment. I think the media is partly to blame for that. If you were able to watch HBO’s Special 4 Part Episodes on Pacquiao vs. Hatton you’ll know that they made Paquiao look too relaxed and laid back; possibly not preparing enough for the fight when compared to Hatton. There was no doubt from the Philippine’s corner that their boy would win; I didn’t think that it would be over so quick either.

    Quick analyzer si pacman, not to mention na accurate (57% of his punches landed on hatton) and his improved right punches. Inunahan ni Pacman si Hatton, kea before he knew it, it was over.

    Mabuhay ang Pinoy!

    I was expecting the fight to go midway and end it with Pacquiao knocking off Hatton but 2nd round? In the Philippines, movie houses that showed this fight were filled. Paying 500 pesos or more for a fight that lasted that short isn’t really worth it. But of couse, with Pacquiao winning the fight very dominantly, we didn’t really regret paying 500 to watch the fight on the big screen 🙂
