Other mathches include, Russia’s Matt Korobov vs. Rodrigo Aguiar and Erislandy Lara against Chris Gray.

04/08/2009. Speculations today were spread and even me is asking if this is true. Pacquiao according to a news hurt his foot in his current training. Well let see if this is true and they revealed what tactics that they will do to knock down his opponent and that is a lot of body shot. “I am so excited already!”

4/06/2009. Freddie Roach said today that Pacquiao can knock out Hatton in 9 minutes instead of the previous coach mandate to knock out him in 9 rounds which is same as the De La Hoya-Pacquiao match. Can He do it? What will be Hatton’s reaction about this? Let see guys!

03/29/2009. Arum announced his plans for Manny Pacquiao’s next fight. He’s planning to match him with Chavez, Jr. Read the details here: Pacquiao vs Chavez Jr.

03/19/2009. Pacquiao changed his media partner in the Philippines. This mean that Filipino fans can watch the Hatton vs Pacquiao match on ABS-CBN instead of GMA 7.

03/16/2009. Today, Pacquiao was tagged by Sports Illustrated as the number one or best pound for pound boxer/fighter of the current times.

03/05/2009. Pacquiao is in US now for his 2 months long training. According to him this Pacquiao and Hatton match might be his last fight and he will retire after this. This might be connected to his plans for 2010 Philippine Elections.

02/26/2009. Pacquiao will fly this Friday to Hatton’s country for the promotion of their fight before starting his training in US. In connection to this, he relinquished his WBC lightweight title signalling his intention of not going back to the said division. Pacquiao’s coach, Roach, spoke of knocking down Hatton on lesser number of rounds compared to what Mayweather have done to him. “Pacquiao is better than Mayweather”, Freddie Roach stated on his TV interview.

01/23/2009. Finally, There will be Pacquiao vs Hatton this May 2, 2009 after Pacquiao agreed to fight Hatton with the offer of 52-48 share to pay per view and a guaranteed take home earning of $12M. But there are stories that roaming that these agreement is mere speculations and still the match is under negotiations. Let just see what will be the official announcement of this fight. I will update you guys!

01/19/2009. Pacquiao today refused the other offer of Hatton’s camp of 50-50 or 55-45 aside from the 60-40 that he asked. Bob Arum told them that 60-40 sharing in profit is impossible to settle so Pacquiao’s camp is now ready for searching for new opponent. Sad! I thought I could see Hatton being beaten by Pacquiao or vis versa.  🙂

01/13/2009. Today, I just heard on the news that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s group are discussing about the next fight of the people’s champ. After the successful fight of Pacquiao against De La Hoya, it seems that they are not stopping at all. They are still “picking for a fight” to different fighters. One of the fighter that they considered to negotiate to fight was Ricky “Hitman” Hatton, a welterweight champion from England. Actually this was the reason why Pacquiao named his new baby as “Queen Elizabeth” because he was expecting that his next fight will be with Hatton. But according to Pacman’s group they were not yet done with the deal because they were not able to agree with the “money deal.” The Pacquiao camp is asking for a 60-40 deal but Hatton’s group did not agree from this offer so the fight is still hanging and there’s no fix announcement yet. According to them, they will announced later this month if they will really fighting in the ring.

pacquiao-hatton-mayweather

Another speculation that spreading in Las Vegas today was Pacquiao also considering to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr., an undefeated American boxer who beats Ricky Hatton on their last match. Mayweather already retired and the last time that I saw this guy on TV was on Wrestling Mania. I don’t know if he will really fight again in the ring.

As of now, there’s no really final decision yet for both camps on who will be their next opponent. How about you what do you want to be the next boxing event to watch out, will it be Pacquiao vs Hatton or Pacquiao vs May Weather? Watch out!

  1. Ricky Hatton got his ass handed to him. He is always blaming his losses to the elite fighters on his manager, the flu, the heat, weight loss etc. But the truth is he can’t hack it in the top flight. And now instead of retiring he’s coming back!

  2. today pacquiao is more popular than ricky hatton, so it is necessary for him to get the bigger share of this fight..

  3. hodgy

    hatton got hammered. v.disappointing hang up the gloves hatton !!

    1. Actually i did not post any video here. It is not allowed because it is owned exclusively by some tv company or whatsoever.

  4. julianfelipe

    panget ang pag kakanta ni martin, nkaka bwisit! bakit ba kaylangang babuyin? simple-simple ng tono,marcha ang beat… mahirap bang i memorize yun?

    1. @julianfelipe, I think he done it his way. Let us give him a break.

  5. gestrella

    Buti na lang may live coverage sa cable ng pare ko na hindi pay per view kasi ayokong magbayad ng 500 sa sinehan na 2 rounds lang. Ang ganda ng coverage sa supersports channel kasi parang pay per view din pero libre. Sana man lang ang mga major cable operator ay kumuha sa channel na to.

    Actually, i have’nt seen the live coverage of the Pacman and Hatton’s fight today!gosh!ala pa ata sa youtube?!

  8. krysol100

    oo nga

  9. macky

    i hate how martin nievera sang the philippine national anthem. when i heard him, i was too pissed off. in the first place, he was not there to promote himself as a singer–neither to promote an album. gosh! baka naman umaasa pa s’ya na magkakaroon s’ya ng break sa international scene out of his presence at the pacquiao-hatton fight. gosh! hindi ba n’ya nalalaman na ang “lupang hinirang” ay ‘di kanta na pang-contest o pang-concert?! at ‘di ba n’ya nalalaman na may kaparusahan ang pagkanta nito ng wala sa tamang kumpas at tono. maybe this time, many people in the world are now laughing at the filipinos because of the different renditions done by those who sang the anthem in the previous fights of paquiao (partly, this is the fault of the government!) mr. nievera’s rendition should have been okay had it not been for the beginning and, especially, the ending. now, it’s just right that the government has to axe a punishment on anyone who violated the law regarding the singing/rendition of the philippine national anthem.

    1. Personally macky, I like how Martin perform and I think he did his best. IMHO. 🙂

  18. charlton

    I think paquiao will lost this fight, because this division is to big for him. . I think paquiao will knock down this bout. . charlton cabigon from philippines

  19. gestrella

    kaya nga pag laban ni Pacman, ayokong pumunta ng metro manila kasi wala live na laban

    1. gestrella, I thought they cover it in theaters for a fee? don’t they?

  20. gestrella

    Bakit sa mga provinces live ang boxing ni Pacman sa cable na di na kailangan magbayad ng pay per view. Walang wala yang skycable sa cable namin. Bat di nila kinikuha ang supersports channel. Maganda pa ang coverage kasi Americans ang mga commentator. Sa supersports channel ko na lang panoorin kaysa magbayad sa sinehan

    1. @gestrella, it is because a lot of local politicians are sponsoring this free fight shows. You know naman, malapit na! 😀

  21. Eli

    its almost fight night (day!)!… everyone is excited di na makapag hintay tatay ko! hehe

    1. for this fight I think Pacquiao got the higher share. he actually demand for it. 🙂

  25. i believe it should be at least 55-45 for pacquiao. i hope the fight happens.

    1. how I wish it too bugz. 🙂

  26. jon

    it doesnt matter whos the next boxer to be smashed by pacman…
    what im waiting for the pacman-tyson match!!!

    1. LOL jon! i guess it wont happen 🙂

  27. Wish I could watch the next match, I missed the one with Dela Hoya and I never missed any Pacquiao match except that last one…Geeez, its different to watch it live than replays.

    1. me, i just can’t wait for this next fight to come. I hope that they will pursue w/ their May fight plans. there’s a speculation that the fight might not pursue and instead Pacquiao will make a movie with Stallone, an action-comedy boxing theme movie I guess.
