25,000 Ricky Hatton fans made the trip to Las Vegas for last nights Hatton V. Manny Pacquiao fight, only to see him go down quicker than an 1990's Man City team.



Time for the lad to hang his gloves up?

Pacquiao is just the man. Best boxer, pound for pound, in the world. De LaHoya was supposed to challenge him, nothing. I knew Hatton wouldn't be able to rise up.

I don't even know why he took this fight after the Mayweather fight.

He's not going to get any better at this time in his career, he's got nothing left to prove to his fans.

Just fight some faded big name at the City of Manchester stadium for one last payday and call it a day.

I would have loved to see that fight...I love it when the favorite goes down. (I take it he was the favorite). Unfortunately, I don't have cable or anything and I never get to see ****.

A while back, maybe 2 years ago, I went to see Allen Green (167 lbs) at Buffalo Run Casino in Quapaw, Oklahoma. He knocked out Jaidon Codrin (167 lbs) cold in 18 seconds and Codrin fell right through the ropes and landed on the judge's table. It was great everybody was going crazy and throwing beer bottles at each other. Jaidon Codrin's girlfriend jumped in the ring and was trying to get to Allen Green to beat him up or something and she got hauled out kicking and screaming by the cops. It took Codrin 3 minutes to regain consciousness.

A boxing match is SOOOOO much better when the venue serves alcohol. Makes things more interesting. Hahah

Mayweather-Pacman would be a great fight. PBF is arguably one of the best defensive fighters of all time, but Pacman would try to push the fight and get it sloppy.

The one thing is everyone underrates PBF's power. I'd put money on him to pull it out.

I can't wait for this. There is no doubt it's going to happen. I really like Floyd Mayweather in this matchup too, but maybe that' dangerous thinking..

I'm not really interested in boxing, but I read in the paper this morning that it's written into Philippines' law that the army will come to his aid if he or his family are in danger. That's just supremely awesome.

I have huge doubts that it won't happen. Him coming out to fight Marquez is a step in the right direction, but Mayweather has carefully chosen his fights all his career, dodging most fights he thought he might have trouble with.
