Attention to all Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton fans! The planned showdown of Birtish boxer Ricky Hatton between Filipino pound-for-pound king Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao on May 2, 2009 at Las Vegas was called off after the two boxers’ camps couldn’t agree on how to split the profit. Manny Pacquiao decided not to sign because he was unhappy with the terms. He wanted to have a bigger split of the profits but Hatton’s camp didn’t agreed. So, that’s it! No fight between Pacquiao and Hatton.
Eric Morales a Mexican boxing hero that was defeated by Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao in their 2005 & 2006 fight said that Pacquiao will have no chance against Ricky Hatton. “Hatton has a good punch and he’s fast,” Morales said in a Mexican paper Esto. Hatton and Pacquiao are all set to fight in a big showdown on May 2, 2009 with the British slugger putting his 140-pound IBO belt on the line. Another boxer, welterweight Carlos Palomino, now 59, has issued an early forecast, and like Morales is betting on Hatton. “At 140 pounds, I think Hatton is too strong for Manny. He’d put too much pressure on Manny,” said Palomino, who lost his welterweight crown to Wilfred Benitez via a 15-round decision in 1979. I think Manny still has a chance to win against Hatton and we all know that Oscar Dela Hoya was defeated and forced to give up after eight rounds in their 147-pound match right? Manny is the champion of the champions. He is young, fast, strong and a great fighter. If He wins then He’s the Champion of all time! He has his pound-for-pound title, a nine-match winning streak and a reputation as the greatest, most exciting fighter today on the line.
