    It was a fight, not a boxing match! More money than Hatton would ever make and laid it on the line. Hatton is not a thinker and fights on guts and determination. No way he would beat the Filipino Flash. The outcome was predictable and was a matter of time before for the big KO.
    Hatton fought stupid by leading with his chin against a left handed bomber.

    Freddie Roach trained Pacman well. Every time Hatton would throw his right, Manny would duck and hook. Manny’s left was missing by inches. Finally, in the 2nd round Hatton steps inside and drops his left guard, to have a look a what, I don’t know. Boom! The lights went out. It was a pitcher perfect execution. Knockout of the year. 

    Got to love the Pacman. He comes to fight and always give his fans their moneys worth. Who starts as a flyweight and dominates every division up to Jr.Middleweight. Best fighter pound for pound ever!
