When I got up this morning my Philippine born wife asked. “Who won the fight?” From AP-
Pacquiao cemented his claim to being the best pound-for-pound boxer Saturday night with a spectacular performance that ended with Hatton sprawled helplessly on the canvas after a devastating left hand to the head late in the second round.
Coming off a dominating win over De La Hoya, Pacquiao was even better against Hatton, knocking him down two times in the first round before finally stopping him with a vicious left hand that dropped Hatton for good in the 140-pound title bout.
Referee Kenny Bayless took one look at Hatton and declared the fight over at 2:59 of the second round.
“I didn’t have to count,” Bayless said.
Hatton laid on the canvas for several minutes while doctors tended to him before finally leaving the ring with a wry smile on his face. He was taken to a local hospital for a precautionary brain scan.
Lets hope and pray Hatton is all right. Dear wife and I were invited to a friend’s house to watch the fight but we were both too tired to stay up. It was a short fight, we’ll get to watch some time later today.
