So finally, the Ricky Hatton mystery has been solved. It wasn't close as most of us foresaw. Ricky Hatton never got a chance. 2 knockdowns in the first round, one by a right hook and the other by a left straight both of which he looks googly and wobbly. Speed difference is so great. Manny having the advantage.
In round 2 when Manny threw a feint-parry right hand, Ricky threw a weak left hook to the body, dropping his right hand giving Manny's left hook an opening. Of course that being Manny's most destructive weapon, we expect a hit to drop RH again. It landed right on the button. RH looked lifeless. the brits silenced, Filipinos jubilant. I'm glad Hatton's OK. he was able to walk with his own strength going to the locker. as for Manny, sky is the limit. Pretty boy floyd, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez or even the Klitschkos just bring them on. I'm sure they'll all get Pacmanized.
