Ricky Hatton

Many expected Pacquiao to defeat Ricky Hatton when they met. Given that Pacquiao is a two handed fighter with greater skill, speed and power a win was a given. However, Hatton was powerful a brawler with a good punch so everyone expected some entertaining exchanges. Manny had other plans. Pacquiao dominated from the opening bell dropping Hatton twice in the first round. In round two when it appeared Hatton got his legs back and was on the offensive, Pacquiao knocked Hatton out cold with a sharp left hook with less than ten seconds remaining. The knockout showed that he had one punch knockout power and earned him “Knock Out of the Year” honors from The Ring Magazine.
