    Who do you think will win?

    Our very own Manny "Pac-man" Pacquiao or the British mate Ricky "the Hitman" Hatton?

    Im going with Manny but think this could go either way, the natural weight advantage is what evens this up for me, otherwise manny would destroy Hatton

    Indeed, but Manny must be aware that Hatton is a good striker.

    I didnt know Tommy Hearns was fighting.....

    Oh... THAT Hitman.

    He'll lose. Too slow, like a bull, Pac will dance circles around him while smashing his Britty face in.

    What just happened?

    I was with my 3 English friends at the local bar watching the fight and... well that was just so embarrassing. How can Hatton have all this talk about changing his game up and promising a good fight, and then look exactly like he always has, but worse.

    Horrible fight.

    Manny was class and Hatton was the same old rushing in style, not suited against a skillful boxer or a more powerful 1 either, great fight while it lasted!!

    Our city streets was so peaceful during the match.

    One thing is that I hate the way Hatton does his clinches.

    1st round and he's down for 2 times, first was the right hand fist then the left hand fist.

    Then 2nd round goes and for the last 2 seconds of the match, Hatton wasn't saved by the bell, he was totally hit by Pac-man's blazing left hand and the match was over.

    I can see the British people's faces, and t'was awful.

    Congratulation People's champ. :D

    His fighting style was never that great to begin with. And when tested against true champions, he fell short. Time to hang 'em up.

    He'll always be remembered for his tenacity and will to fight, but it takes more than that to be a great.

    I think he treated Billy Graham appallingly. He says Billy wasn't up for the job, then hires Mayweather who has a lung disease and is never on time! Surely Billy could have overseen training as Lee Beard (spelling?) held the mitts,etc? I like Hatton a lot, but I think this fight was a lesson for him in more ways than one. I think he should retire. He has been great, but he has done enough.

    As for Pacquiao, I think he will find it hard against Cotto. I think at 10/7 it would be Cotto, but at 10/5, well it may be too much for Cotto lose. There is a big difference for someone that can train flat out, to someone that has to weigh in below their proper weight.
