Pacquiao Knocks Out Hatton in 2nd Round

ricky-hatton-introI’ve never been one for little guys fighting, but Saturday Night’s Pacquiao Vs. Hatton fight in Las Vegas had me goin’ pretty good.  Sure, HBO’s Pacquiao-Hatton 24/7 helped to build the hype, but Hatton had no chance from the get go.  Hatton went down twice in the 1st round and met his fate with a last minute left-cross in the 2nd to end his title run.

Ricky was knocked-the-f*ck-out / clock-cleaned / layed-the-f*ck down with less than 10 seconds to go in round number 2.  Minutes later, Hatton was still clueless of his where-abouts.  Butal, but awesome.  In my mind, Hatton went down too quick and it’s all too convenient that Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced this morning, he was coming out of retirement to show he was, and is, still the greatest little-man-fighter on the planet. In a sport that is way struggling for attention, certainly there is no better dramatic story than the comeback of Floyd Jr. vs. the ferocious ingenue of his estranged trainer-father.  Just saying.   Here are some highlights from the fight.
