    Anybody else here watched this? It was INCREDIBLE!!! This was the most hyped one-sided fight I have ever seen. For all of The Hitman's skill, The Pacman just danced around him, delivering blow after powerful blow, knocking him down twice in the first round alone, the first of which immediately brought Hatton to his knees. Family and friends gathered in our home were literally cheering their lungs out!!

    And a few seconds into round two, Pacquiao delivered the clincher, knocking Hatton flat on his back in the middle of the ring, un-Freakin'-concious!!


    I just feel sorry for the folks who went all the way to Vegas!! It was short but most definitely sweet!

    I went to an event at my church for it, it was ridiculously short. But there's nothing like watching a building full of Filipinos cheer and jump up every time Pacman took a step

    we closed up the pub at 4 lastnight and downed tools to watch it. I left just as the first round was about to start, on account of being back at 11, had I known it was going to be so quick I'd have stayed.

    See, this is another reason why I don't like boxing. if I'd paid a shitload to go see that I'd be leaving feeling gypped that i got a really short match.

    Would you prefer to see a quick knockout, or a 12-round decision?

    I'll see a KO anytime.

    Pacquiao is the man.

    My uncles actually travelled to Vegas to see it. The sad part is one of 'em had to go to the restrooms, and as you can guess, missed the whole thing:banghead:

    that would just suck so bad, I'd be kinda mad.

    It was a nice fight though. Pacquiao is a damned impressive fighter. Filipino boxing on the whole is very impressive. They way they fake, mislead, change their stance to increase their punch range while looking like they haven't really changed much. It's all very interesting actually, one of the most interesting boxing styles I ever paid attention to.
