Even better than predicted: Pacquiao KO's Hatton in 2

Manny Pacquiao's stock shot up yet another notch today as he disposed of Ricky Hatton earlier than anyone ever predicted. Most of the analysts said he'd do it within 8 rounds. Even his trainer, Freddie Roach, no slouch himself in the predictions department was off as Pacquiao did it in two rounds.

This time, no one will question Pacquiao's real ability as a fighter. No one can say that Hatton was a washed-up, past-his-prime fighter. This was no Oscar de la Hoya whose Golden Age had already passed. This was a Hatton still in-peak form: agile, hungry and deadly.

You could still say that after watching these clips courtesy of some ever-helpful Youtubers :

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Hatton met his match. Scratch that. Pacquiao was more than that. Hatton was completely out-matched.

Five predictions:

1. Ricky Hatton will come to the Philippines to shoot a commercial for San Miguel Beer with Manny Pacquiao. (He's a Brit. He loves beer. He seems like a nice guy. So why not, right?)

2. The Brits will want a rematch. Maybe by end of the year. Why not? Their boy never really got a chance to show his skills, never mind that that's because he got thoroughly whipped.Pacquiao will beat him again, after which Hatton will retire.

3. Floyd Mayweather Jr will come out from retirement and challenge Manny. Sounds good to me. Manny will beat Mayweather. Mayweather will retire for good.

4. Pacquiao will retire after he disposes of Mayweather and after he demolishes Hatton again for their rematch. Who is else is left for the Pacman anyway?

5. Pacquiao will run for Congress again. He will lose. He will then enter showbiz as a comedian cum singer. He will be more successful in this second career. He will never try politics again.

I'm sure.

Mejo nasayang yung bayad namin sa pay-per-view, but sige lang, he knocked the hell out of Hatton. My dad was so amazed with his song (ewan ko kung bakit) so he asked me to buy him an Ipod containing all of Pacquiao's songs and ayokong magspend ng ganong kalaking pera so I joined in this Ipod contest when I know that this is just one of my dad's craze.
