by • April 13, 2009 • SportsComments (1)717

In less than 3 weeks from now the battle of boxing supremacy between the best of the west against the best of the east will take place on MGM Grand.   As it is getting nearer the heat is rising to bursting.  Who will emerge as supreme boxing champ?  Who will remain standing in the middle of the boxing ring?

These questions will be answered on May 2 as Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will face Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton in a most awaited boxing match of the year.  Both fighter have shown supreme talent and skills as a boxer, their boxing statistics would tell that both fighter are toe-to-toe and head-to-head with each other.  Pacman has a record of 48 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws with 69.57% knock out percentage.  The Hitman Hatton has a record of 45 wins, 1 loss and 0 draw with a 69.57% knock out percentage.  Pacman won three fights in three different weight divisions, two of which were world titles while The Hitman holds the two division world champion.

The Pacquiao-Hatton fight will mark as one of the greatest fight in the boxing history; this fight dubbed as the “Battle of East versus West”.  Both fighters are fighting not only for their name and the championship belt but this more a battle of nation’s pride.  When Pacman goes into the ring on May 2 he will be fighting for the Philippines and millions of Filipinos worldwide and Hatton will be there to fight for England’s pride and honor.
Many predictions have been made of who will win the fight but the trainers on both, Pacman and Hitman, camps agreed that the fight will go beyond round 4.  According to Roach, Pacquiao will stop Hatton on round three but Mayweather retaliated that it would never happen because Pacquiao will be on flat on the canvass on the second round.  It is really exciting to watch the two camps throwing insults and challenges, it builds up the heat.  The anticipation is getting thicker that I could actually, somewhat, felt it physically.

This will be a great fight; it would be size and power against speed and ability.  This will justify who will be the “The Man”.
