Men At Work: Pac Man Meets The Hit Man

Last week I stated the case for Ricky Hatton against Manny Pacquiao, but today I will tell you why he has little chance to win next Saturday. It’s simple. Manny Pacquiao is the better fighter. When I looked at each key factor in this fight, nearly all of them seem to point to a Pac Man victory. We saw what excellent hand speed did to Hatton when he met Floyd Mayweather nearly two years ago. The results were disastrous.
Unfortunately for Hatton, speed isn’t the only advantage that Pacquiao will have in seven days. Below I break down what he’s up against. The challenge will be daunting.
I have seven of 10 key factors in favor of the pride of the Philippines. Hatton has the sturdier chin (maybe) and is definitely the bigger man. But that’s it. On paper, this looks like a Manny Pacquiao blowout. But a wise man once said, "paper don’t win titles." That’s true. But speed does. Power doesn’t hurt either. The man with both in this fight is Pacquiao. These factors will lead Manny Pacquiao to a stoppage victory over Ricky Hatton around round nine in an entertaining scrap.
