The Curious Case of the Beaten Briton

Ricky HattonI wrote the following tidbits while watching the much delayed telecast of the Money Pacquiao vs. Ricky Hatton fight in GMA7:

  • Several months ago, we mentioned in this blog that Pacquiao's Next Target is Ricky Hatton. Today, we witnessed the Curious Case of the Beaten Briton. I mean, everybody knows that Hatton could lose to Pacquiao. What was very surprising was the manner to which he lost.
  • While his British supporters were seen on TV, holding bottles of beer as they watch the fight, it seemed that Hatton was the most drunk of them all. With the way he dropped to the canvass twice in round 1, and in the final seconds of round 2, you can't help but feel some sympathy to the Hatton camp.
  • Will this be the end of Ricky Hatton's impressive career? Will the Hitman from Manchester finally call it quits after fighting the best twice and losing on both? Only time will tell.
  • I heard from The Good Times show that Grace Lee actually made a hundred thousand peso bet (around $2,000) for Ricky Hatton. I can't wait to hear from them tomorrow morning. I'm sure it's gonna be so funny when Mo Twister and Mojo Jojo talks about it.

I was laughing at the title and the way you put it. It's something not many Britons would take lightly.

Anyway, congratulations to the greatest fighter of all time!

Crickette, thanks for the comment. Grace Lee was fooled by Mo Twister to bet on Hatton. Now, she needs to pay.

Joemill, thanks for dropping a line. I'm sure even the Britons were a little disappointed with Hatton yesterday. Hatton is still a good fighter though. That's why Pacquiao's victory was very sweet.
