Manny vs. Ricky

Posted on: May 2, 2009 11:58 pm
WOW!  What a freakin knockout punch.  There's a shot heard around the world. England heard it and you know the Philippines did. One that will be replayed on every sports show for a long time to come. Manny Pacquiao simply blistered the right side of Ricky Hatton.  I swear I saw little birds circling his head as he fell to the floor. 
Pound for pound, Pacquiao is the best.  For now. 
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is coming back.  July 18th against Juan Manuel Marquez.  I don't think that Mayweather will have much of problem there.  Unless he goes in really unprepared. Which I doubt.  I don't think he likes the idea of Pacquiao being considered as the better fighter.  So, if all goes right, we should have a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight this fall or winter.  Now that's a fight.
