Hatton Says Pacquiao is Exciting But Boring Mayweather Will Win Superfight

Former 140-pound universally-recognized ruler Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton was in Glasgow, Scotland recently to promote his new line of Team Hitman sports equipment. He talked to Scottish tabloid newspaper Daily Record to share his thoughts on the widely anticipated proposed superfight in 2010 to be headlined by two of his former conquerors in Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. and Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao.

Hindsight is always 20/20 and experience is the best teacher. If both of these expressions are to be counted upon in determining the eventual winner of the proposed mouthwatering match-up between Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao and flamboyant unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather Jr., then there are no better prognosticators in the world of boxing than the fighters who have actually been in the ring and traded leather with both future combatants themselves.

For the record Pacquiao and Mayweather have had three common opponents, namely: Oscar De La Hoya, Juan Manuel Marquez, and Ricky Hatton. Together, the Pacman and Money May combined for an impressive 6 wins, 1 draw, with no loss against the three future Hall of Famers.

Common Denominators

Perennial top ten pound-for-pound candidate Juan Manuel ‘Dinamita’ Marquez (50-5-1, 37 KOs) fought Pacquiao to a draw at featherweight in 2004 before losing his WBC and Ring Magazine super featherweight title to the Pacman four years later. In his first and supposedly last foray into the welterweight division, Dinamita also tangled with Mayweather in his comeback fight after a self-imposed 21-month retirement which the Mexican lost via a lopsided 12-round unanimous decision.

Marquez cannot make up his mind as to which of the two will eventually emerge victorious if and when Pacquiao and Mayweather tangles in 2010. Immediately after his September 19 bout with Mayweather, the 36-year old Mexican was asked to compare the two pound-for-pound claimants and give his assessment as to who should be the rightful owner to the throne since he was in a unique position having already fought both of them. Marquez said that the two are completely different fighters in terms of style. While Pacquiao is a great fighter who brings all-out aggression, Mayweather on the other hand is a master tactician and defensive specialist, hence he cannot make a categorical answer as both bring their own set of advantages and disadvantages inside the ring.

The Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya (39-6-0, 30 KOs) lost a split decision to Mayweather in a PPV record-setting fight at super middleweight in 2007 before quitting on his stool after eight rounds with Pacquiao and admitting he can no longer ‘pull the trigger’ in a breakthrough performance by the Filipino in December 2008. The Golden Boy announced his retirement soon after, acknowledging the fact that he can no longer fight at the sport’s highest level.

De La Hoya has not been a full-time fighter in a long while and even while he was still fighting any statement that he releases with regards to any fight are taken with a grain of salt as he increasingly seems to further the best interest of their promotional outfit first and foremost above anything else, not the least of which is objectivity, before releasing any carefully crafted statement. He has not issued a public statement favoring one or the other in the proposed superfight however as negotiations are set to officially begin anytime soon.

Which leaves us with the third and final common denominator who might be able to draw on his unique vantage point, and share with us his invaluable insight on the probable outcome of one of the most anticipated fights in recent years. The Mancunian brawler Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton (45-2, 30 KOs) battled Floyd Mayweather to a 10th round TKO loss in December 2007 before sprawling flat out on the canvass with one second left in the second round of his brutal knockout loss to the Pacman in May this year.

Hitman Favors ‘Money’ But Would Rather Watch Manny

Hatton shared his views on the upcoming superfight in an interview conducted by Scottish tabloid newspaper Daily Record. The Hitman confessed being blown away by Pacquiao’s performance against Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto after picking against his one-time conqueror prior to the fight, “Pacquiao gets better with every fight. I didn’t fancy him against Miguel Cotto earlier this month but he smashed him to bits”, the 31-year old native of Manchester, England admitted.

When pressed for his prediction however on the outcome of the much-talked about fight, Hatton favored Mayweather over Pacquiao saying the fast-talking American has the style and the safety-first approach to avoid getting nailed by the Pacman, “Mayweather is so good he doesn’t let you get any punches off. If he makes Pacquiao miss he’ll take the sting out of him”.

Well, suffice to say it won’t be the first time the outspoken Briton will be proven wrong if ever, as he also picked De La Hoya to prevail in another of Pacquiao’s previous fights while the Pacman has proven time and again that he has the uncanny ability to almost always dig deep and find a way to prove his critics and doubters wrong.

Although he was called a ‘not that good’ world champion by Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach in one of the recent episodes of HBO’s 24/7 series, Hatton confesses he still prefers watching Pacquiao over Mayweather anytime as he claims that watching Mayweather is about as exciting as watching paint dry.

“I’d rather watch Pacquiao though. Mayweather will go down as one of the all time greats but I wouldn’t get up at four o’clock in the morning to watch him. He bores the s*** out of me”, disclosed the former light welterweight lineal title holder.

Now that’s a statement we fully agree, with or without the benefit of hindsight or ring experience.

    I agree w/ you. Mayweather is clever. He will not fight toe toe, but run all night long, jab jab, run and defence. Mayweather via unanimous decision.

    The fact that Hatton is not accept that he lost to Manny. I think Hatton is not a good boxer he has no skills. he wins a lot because majority of his fight is in his own country. but he is not good boxer.

    HATTON IS SO FAKE. We know that he is not over with that KO he suffered from Pacquiao and deep inside he was humiliated and could will never forgive the Pacman. Why I say that? First he made this dumb prediction w/o concrete reason that Cotto will beat Pacquiao, then he mentioned in one of the interviews that on the second round of his fight with Pacquiao, he was leading until he got caught with that powerful lefthook that shook his brains. Now he is saying that PBF will win but hopes Pacquiao will prevail coz Manny is a great guy and blah-blah-blah but deep inside he is screaming for Pacquiao’s defeat.
    This FAT BRIT’s brain is so banged up that he doesn’t know anymore what to say.. Very sad ending.

    I\’m tired of hearing this/that… Mayweather this, Pacquiao that, Cotto there…. 1 thing \’s 4 sure, everything is relative. E=mc2 ! \’saw fights of these boxers… & if Pac-Man\’s condition stays, he\’s in 4 a big win. Just faster, more power & Great defense! but d one w/ better heart can turn d tide any w/c way he wants!

    Running is will not win the fight but offense will make win the fight. Think about it when punches in different angles will hit Floyd a lot, Floyd throw punches once or twice manny is too fast.

    Hatton wants to see Pacquiao be defeated so he can say that it was just a lucky punch that made him lose.

    Floyd is hittable, watch his match vs Castillo. Castillo won. Pressure Floyd and he’ll crack. No one’s defense is perfect.

    PS. Hatton is mad because he got beated and destroyed. While against Floyd, he stood a chance.

    Plus, Hatton moved up to fight Floyd, while Pacquiao beat Hatton at his more natural weight, 140 where he thought he was the best.

  10. Posted November 23, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    nah, mayweather cannot win against pacquiao, and that’s for sure..’ he can run all the time but he will lost that fight because he is so scared and dont want to get hit. Pacquiao punches is so strong that his pretty face(that’s what they called him) will turn into like swelling pusy’s. His defense will not work againts pacquiao, wanna bet??

    LMAO… What a nuts Hatto!. Sour loser! All his prediction for Pacman were all wrong. He predicted ODLH would smash Pacman, He predicted he will be too much for pacquiao as he is the king of 140 and he believes no one could beat him in that division and finally, he predicted Cotto will demolish the pacman. What a guy hatton.. He could not accept that Pacman whopped his ass and knock him out cold!

    what can I say almost all comments did the same comment. Hatton was KO by Pacquiao in Rd 2, while PBF did it in 10 rds. Dela Hoya was TKO by PACMAN in Rd 8, while PBF almost lost in a split decision.

    If you are mathematician or a scientist, do the equals!
    Mayweather will KO by PACMAN in Rd 5. Why 5? The average of round 8 & 2 is 5.

    Mayweather may run and hide but he can’t escape the speed, fast throwing punches at all angles by PACMAN. Mayweather is a good defensive fighter but the question is, can he sees the punches of PACMAN as what the latter’s opponent said that punches were invisible?

    In the end of the fight, expect a lot of excuses talking from PBF like what he’s father did!

    Pacquiao fights bigger man like Dela Hoya, Hatton, Cotto and soon PBF. It’s a shame if he losses to a smaller great guy that he always said that he is the best fighter in the world.

    As what PACMAN said “Only God Knows”!

    SHUT UP HATTON! Youre almost been in ICU when you was knock out by PACMAN in Round 2..hahahaha. LOL! Take Note HATTON choose MAYWEATHER over pacquiao and this will going to be his 3RD LOSS. 1st TKO 10 by MAYWEATHER, 2nd TKO 2 by pacquiao (MAYWEATHER SR. is his coach at that fight) and 3rd is he choose MAYWEATHER over pacman, and pac going to destroy PBF because PBF had difficulty fighting on a southpaw.

    MARQUEZ & HATTON ARE THOSE FIGHTERS WHO ALWAYS PRETEND THAT THEY CAN, BUT THEY CAN’T! FIRST HATTON PRETEND THAT HE IS THE MAN THAT CAN BEAT PACMAN? OH NO WHAT’S HAPPEN HE WAS DESTROYED IN THE EARLY SECOND ROUND WHILE MARQUEZ HE ALWAYS PRETEND THAT HE CAN BEAT MAYWEATHER BUT WHAT HAPPEN HE WAS KNOCK DOWN IN ROUND TWO AND OUTBOX ALL NIGHT.. RICKY HATTON WAS LOSS FOR BOTH PACMAN AND PRETTY BOY BY KNOCK OUT. MARQUEZ ALSO LOSS TO PACMAN AND MONEY MAY. WHY HE IS ALWAYS PRETEND THAT HE IS THE BEST?

    IF I RATE 1-10

    PACQUIAO 9
    MAYWEATHER 7

    MARQUEZ AND HATTON ARE BOTH 2.

    IT IS BETTER THAT THEY WOULD MAKE NEGOTIATION TO FIGHT EACH OTHER, “”"LOSSERS AND PRETENDER”

    Let\’s give Hatton a break and let\’s respect his opinion about this. Though I\’m sure he won\’t admit it, he is also a pacfan. Regarding the upcoming fight with Mayweather, I am hopeful that he will give Pacman a much challenge for our entertainment. I am sick on watching Pacman destroys an opponent without any challenge. I want to see the Pacman push to his limit like what Marquez has done.

    Does anyone actually listen to what Hatton has to say?
    He said De La Hoya will beat Pacquiao,he said he will beat Pacquiao,he said Cotto would beat Pacquiao.Now hes saying Fraud mayweather will beat Pacquiao…..thanks for the tip Hatton !
    By the way have you seen the fight when Pacquiao KO you? you’ve said you’ve not watch it yet, why not? you should its actually really funny,3 knock downs but you still claim you were winning the fight and you got caught with a lucky punch??? what have you been drinking?
    After the other loser your fighting Marquez KO you, Im sure ul look for a fight with another loser Fraud mayweather…yes your a man of the people,ripping them off while your bank account gets as big as your belly.A true English hero

  20. Posted November 23, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Well we have to understand to Mr. hatton, it might be until this time his brain still not functioning very well, because of what happened during the fight againts pacman.

    I am a big Manny Pacquiao fan but I do like Ricky Hatton, he tells it like it is.He thinks mayweather will win the fight against pacquiao? jolly good for him.Though ricky does not pull his punches when speaking his mind he does suck at predicting on who’ll win fights.Like the article said he is 2 for 2 for incorrectly predicting the outcome of Pacquiao’s fight, let’s make it 3 for 3.He says Mayweather would win if he fights Pacquiao so Floyd jr should be afraid that Ricky’s picking your side ,AHHH!!that’s a bad omen for you.And realisticly,Pacquiao WILL win in a fight against Mayweather,that is a fact

    my advise to you dicky hatton, shut up loser! what pac did to you was so embarrassing that you went hiding inside your cocoon for months and all you did was to make yourself fatter so you’ll bulk up maybe fight at middleweight so you will be able to avoid pacman. you know what? maybe you’ll stand a chance of being the king once more if you moved down to the FEATHERWEIGHT division where you can whoop fighters ass but not in JR.WELTERWEIGHT and WELTERWEIGHT divisions wherein you will have to deal with a low life gayweather and the kingpin pacman. so don’t dare of coming back in that division not until manny retires.

  25. Posted November 23, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    Hatton and Dundee’s predictions:
    ODLH vs Pacman – strike one
    Hatton vs Pacman – strike two
    Cotto vs Pacman – strike three

    he might have bet the mortgate against Packy, like he advised everyone before his 2 round destruction… please someone stop him!!!

    Ricky Hatton must be hurt a lot when Roach said to Hatton in the recent 24/7 PAC COTTO series “I hate to say this to a World Champion but He(Ricky Hattton) is not that good”

    Hatton must understand that Freddie Roach has a very valid point. Hatton’s defeat to Mayweather is expected, its just this British Fans that needed an excuse to go to Las Vegas to have some fun has given him a false hope. Hatton was undefeated before the Mayweather fight because he never fought an elite boxer throughout his professional career.

    But i liked to think that Hatton is a very smart boxer and probably all his opinions in boxing should be respected….. before Manny Pacquiao scrambled Ricky Hattons brains. Right now, he is just an English Guy who likes to talk a lot of “SH IT”.

    So my advice to Hatton, dont use Manny Pacquiao to market your Fluke boxing career’s comeback.

    just remember that offense is the best defense. not running, dancing or whatever…

  42. braveheart
    Posted November 24, 2009 at 9:40 am

    would you please stop saying Hatton favors PBF over Pacman becuase he cannot get over his loss to Pacman! That’s ridiculous. Hatton’s assessment is objective. So what if PBF is running? Can he win by running, just like Ali? Of course, that’s what he does best! And it’s part of boxing. See, when you pick a winner, don’t base it if he is boring or exciting. It doesn’t make sense at all. Pick because you think this style will beat that style. Al said that offense is the best defense. That makes more sense. WIth that, he said the fighter who has the best offense got the best defense. I don’t necessarily agree with that. Offense is the best defense if you don’t have defense at all. PBF’s defense is not offense because he has a good, or great defense.
    Now for my pick, I pick Pacman because I believe he will land those shots against PBF’s defense.

  43. Hidden Soldier
    Posted November 24, 2009 at 9:57 am

    I believe Hatton is just being objective with his assessment and not just because Pacman beat him. He also lost to Floyd so why would he favor one over the other?

    Having said that I still believe that he still does not give enough credit to the Pacman by picking PBF to win. I understand he had real difficulties getting past PBF’s defense but then again he’s not the Pacman. He just does not have the freakish skills that Pacman brings to the table.

    Hence, I pick Pacman to win as PBF does not have the power to keep Pacman off of him for the full 12 rounds as he only throws pitty pat punches and the accumulation of punches that Pacman manages to get through (whether it will be to the face, body, or that boring shoulder roll of his) will take its toll over the course of the fight that he may not be able to last the distance. Pacman by late round TKO!

    2.the silent courageous or the fast talking coward, who will gonna win??? the courageous take cotto\’s hard punch decisively and enjoy the fight, whereas, once the feared coward got hit the fight ends and the whole night gonna be running.

    who gonna get the big piece of the cake, should be the king, floyd used to be the king as he said by eliminating those fighters not of his size that way way back, the present is manny wins all his fights against big, high caliber and famous fighter…and he is the present king. who should get the big piece of the pie?
