Who will win? Get the answers to these question when the fight ends tomorrow but for now here are some of FightHype’s staff predictions.
This fight has been overshadowed by the Pacquio vs. Dela Hoya fight on December 16 and I’m much more excited about what will be the outcome of Pacquio-Dela Hoya fight. AS for my prediction, I think Ricky Hatton will win by Unanimous Decision.
According to Hatton if he cannot beat Paulie Malignaggi in their junior welterweight fight Saturday night, he might as well hang up his gloves. But, If he wins, he said he likes to fight the winner of Pacquia-Dela Hoya fight. [via inquirer.net]
“With the performance I expect to put on, I will be well and truly worthy of a fight with Oscar de la Hoya or Manny Pacquiao,” Hatton said. “I would love to fight the winner.
“I would like to think I’d be in the shop window. How much more I would be in the shop window will depend on how I do Saturday.”
Ricky Hatton holds an impressive 44W-1L record with 31 knockouts. Last year he suffered his single loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
