$50 bucks for 5 minutes?  Worth it?  You betcha.  The highly anticipated Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton fight that ended with a KO in the second round.

Most people would think, “Man this sucks, we just paid $50 bucks for a 5 minute fight.” I’m not gonna lie, at first I was a bit disappointed, but in retrospect, there is a lot to be learned from a blowout in any sport.  Only in a blowout, are you able to see something truly special; the culmination of all the training, experience, and talent converging into an apex of sheer domination.

Hatton and Pacquiao were almost identical in all physical attributes; same weight, same age, and same height.  The only difference was the difference in skill.  Pacquiao proved that he was on a totally different level.  He completely outclassed Hatton with a flurry of devastating punches that left Hatton snoring on the canvas.  This speculation-destroying performance thoroughly convinced every witness of one true fact.  Manny Pacquiao was indeed the better man.  In this contest, we were blessed with a glimpse of Pacquiao’s combination of speed, finesse, and power running in perfect harmony.  It is hard to imagine anyone that could have handled what “the Pacman” had to deliver.
