The boxing story on everyone lips at the moment is
the amazing second round knockout defeat of Manchester’s
Ricky Hatton by Manny Pacquiao of the
Phileppines. Not a good month for Manchester, with
Hatton losing and my favourite soccer team Manchester
United losing to Barcelona. Most experts
predicted a win for Pacquiao. I personally thought Pacquiao would win on a late round stoppage. What an upset when he destroyed Hatton faster than the
speed of light.
The fight fans would love to see is the mouth-watering
contest between the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather
and Manny Pacquiao. Should this fight
happen later this year my choice would be the heavier
“Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather to win on points.
My reason being, Mayweather has the speed and
skill to match the dynamic “Pacman”. This fight will
be the biggest grossing money-spinner ever to hit
the box office.
I look forward reporting on my inauguration into
the International Boxing Hall of Fame at Canastota,
