manny pacquiao is now being hailed as the greatest asian fighter and probably one of the greatest fighters in all of boxing history.
certainly, manny pacquiao is the greatest filipino fighter.
Hatton didn’t attend the post-match news conference, because he was taken to Valley Hospital. Before he left, he said, “It was a hard lot, but I’m OK. I really didn’t see the punch coming, but it was a good shot.”
The star trainer always seems to have a secret strategy, and he revealed afterward that, for this one, he had watched hours of film of Hatton — “I knew him better than my own fighter,” he said — and realized that Hatton was wide open for the right hook.
“Hatton pumps his fist before he throws,” Roach said. “We also knew he’d be looking for the left,” Pacquiao’s main weapon.
The first knockdown in the first round came via a right, the second with a left. Hatton had actually survived somewhat better in the second, despite Pacquiao’s quickly evident superior hand speed, foot speed and punching power. But the left that finished him started at about 7 o’clock, landed on Hatton’s face at about 12 noon and made the likely obvious result official.
