Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton on May 2
Filipino boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao is headed for a face-off against British brawler Ricky Hatton in a duel that will most likely happen on May 2 at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas’ Thomas and Mack Center.
Pacquiao, the current WBC lightweight champion, will be aiming for a fifth weight crown against Hatton, who holds the IBO junior welterweight belt.
Both boxers and their managements will finalize the details of the fight before Christmas and Hatton will enter training camp on February 1 after his traditional family cruise.
“Manny has been at the top of my radar since he beat Oscar De La Hoya,” Hatton told Britain’s Sunday Mirror.
“I went in with the best fighter in the world in 2007 when I lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and I will do the same when I get in the ring with Manny. Every boxer wants to prove himself against the very best and that is what I have done again and again.”
It’s going to be a great fight. Who do you think will win?
