Pacman does it again! Manny Pacquiao caught Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton’s chin with a left that sent the Briton flat on his back during their fight dubbed as “The Battle of East and West” in Las Vegas. Referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight at 2:59 of the second round.“I didn’t have to count,” Bayless said.
“The fight was no surprise to me,” Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, said. “We know he always pumps his hands before he throws a punch. He’s a sucker for the right hook.”
Aside from capturing the IBO super lightweight title, the Pacman now joins Oscar dela Hoya as the only boxers to capture titles from six different weight classes. He also cemented his claim to the mythical pound-for-pound title.
Congratulations Manny Pacquiao!
