Pacquiao vs Hatton – Game Plan Analysis

https://boxingstrategist.wordpress.com/

On May 2, 2009, Pacquiao fought at light welterweight, or super lightweight, division for the first time against Ricky Hatton at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, in a fight billed as “The Battle of the East and West.” Pacquiao won the bout via knockout to claim Hatton’s The Ring and IBO Light Welterweight titles. In doing so, Pacquiao became the second man in boxing history to become a six-division world champion, a fighter who won world titles in six different weight divisions and the first man ever to win lineal world titles in four different weight classes.[62]

The fight was originally placed in jeopardy due to disputes with both camps over the fight purse money.[63] Eventually, the money issue was settled and the fight went on as scheduled. HBO aired the contest.[64]

Pacquiao started the fight strong, knocking down Hatton twice in the first round.[65] A somewhat shaken Hatton beat the count, only to be saved by the bell seconds later. In the second round, Hatton seemed to have recovered, as he stalked Pacquiao for most of the round. However, with less than ten seconds remaining in the second round, Hatton was knocked out cold by a sharp left hook, prompting the referee to award Pacquiao the win by knockout (at 2:59 of the round).[66]

The knockout won him the The Ring Magazine “Knockout of the Year” for 2009.
