Hatton’s hot on Pacquiao! Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is every boxer’s dream of defeating. Just imagine the glory and fame, not to mention the purse if Hatton can toppled the worlds best pound-for-pound champion.
The anticipated fight almost didn’t push-through until they settle for a 52-48 split in favor of our very own Manny with a $12 million guaranteed purse. It’s just rightful for Manny to have the big share of the pie. After all he’s on fire! He’s holding four world titles and demolished American legend De la Hoya just recently.
Since they will be battling for Hatton’s title of Light Welterweight. Manny has to shed weights and go down 140lbs from 147lbs. Many boxing afficionados think its an advantage for Pacquiao to be more agile in the ring and be alert for Hatton’s deadly left hook.
The exciting and thrilling bout would take place this coming May 2, 2009 at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Thomas and Mack Center. If only they could fight at AACenter I’m sure Dallas Texas hotels would be fully booked. Goodluck Bai!
