WITH one of the best punches he has ever thrown, Manny Pacquiao knocked out Ricky Hatton in the second round on this day (May 2) in 2009 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
“I’m surprised the fight was so easy,” Pacquiao said. “He was wide open for the right hook. I knew he would be looking for my left.”
The humble Hatton was heartbroken: “It was a hard loss but I’m OK,” he said. “I really didn’t see the punch coming but it was a great shot. I know I’ll be OK.”
