Manny Pacquiao Knocks out Ricky Hatton in Two Rounds

It only took two rounds. Two rounds was all that Manny Pacquiao needed in order to completely obliterate Ricky Hatton and his hopes at conquering the pound for pound champion.

Nothing can be taken away from Pacquiao's performance this time. There was no old legend that had to cut more weight than he was accustomed to. What stood in Pacquiao's way was the reigning junior welterweight champion. A fighter renowned for his strength and his power. And he was completely outmatched against the pound for pound king.

Ricky Hatton vs. Manny Pacquiao Preview & Prediction

On May 2nd in Las Vegas, shown on HBO Pay-Per-View, Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton will finally meet each other in the ring. There will have been months of hype and buzz about the fight, including a four part 24/7 series on HBO.

The beautiful thing about a fight, however, is that come fight night all of the hype can be put aside. There's no more time for life stories and goals. No more time for big mouthed trainers. It's just two men staring each other down in that ring. The better man will almost always emerge. More... »

Top 10 Pound for Pound Boxers March 2009

The last time I took a list at the top 10 pound for pound boxers in the world was in December. Manny Pacquiao was fresh off of his destruction of Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins was enjoying his extended reemergence as a dominant fighter after thoroughly dominating Kelly Pavlik.

Since then a lot has changed. Joe Calzaghe has announced his retirement, joining the likes of Floyd Mayweather as fighters who retired at the top of the game with an undefeated record but are likely to be drawn back to the sport for the right fight. Antonio Margarito was suspended for using illegal hand wraps, and Shane Mosley emerged as the best welterweight in the world. Let's take a look at the current top 10 pound for pound boxers.

Will Floyd Mayweather Fight Manny Pacquiao?

Besides the possible retirement of Oscar De La Hoya one of the other questions on the minds of boxing enthusiasts is whether or not Floyd Mayweather will return from his retirement.

Top 10 Pound for Pound List Boxing December 2008

The last time I made a pound for pound top 10 boxers list was in September. But as we know, the boxing landscape can change rapidly, and as such, pound for pound lists need to be constantly updated. There have been several major fights since that list, and in fact, the majority of the fighters in that pound for pound list have fought since then.

Manny Pacquiao moved up to welterweight and dominated Oscar De La Hoya, Joe Calzaghe bested a faded Roy Jones Jr., Bernard Hopkins routed Kelly Pavlik in an upset and more. With all of those big names fighting, I'm sure there are some changes brewing in the pound for pound top 10 boxers list! More... »

Pacquiao De La Hoya – Pacquiao Knocks out Oscar De La Hoya!

I can officially say that I am surprised and humbled by the TKO victory for Manny Pacquiao over Oscar De La Hoya. Let's get this straight right now if you didn't see the fight: this wasn't a close, back and forth battle that eventually went to the younger lion. This was a complete and utter domination by the energetic, youthful, speedy and powerful Manny Pacquiao over the aged, slow and trigger-shy Oscar De La Hoya. More... »

Top 10 Pound for Pound Boxers – September 2008

The boxing rankings are continuing to get tossed about, and making a top 10 pound for pound list can get tricky. There are retirements, upcoming fights and of course style points. A devastating KO win absolutely is worth more than a questionable split decision victory when it comes down to a boxing top 10 pound for pound list.

So what does pound for pound even mean? For the non-boxing fan out there, it means disregard weight class, who is the best fighter in the business, paying no mind to his size or stature. Pound for pound is not about who would beat everybody else in a fight, it’s if everybody was the same size, who would win in a fight. Who has the most skills? The most all-around game? The pound for pound champion is a guy who can climb weight classes and beat guys bigger than he is, because he is more talented.

The pound for pound king for several years was Floyd Mayweather, Jr. More... »
