The Battle of East and West: Hatton vs Pacquiao


May 2, 2009


MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States


With Pacquiao winning his bout against Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton was seen as the next opponent for Pacquiao.

The bout was a boxing light welterweight superfight for the International Boxing Organization (IBO) and The Ring light welterweight (super lightweight) championship.


In front of a sell out crowd of 16,262, Pacquiao knocked down Hatton twice in the first round: a right hook knocked down the Briton the first time; the other knockdown occurred after a combination by Pacquiao with 9 seconds left.

In the second round, Pacquiao unleashed a left hook to knock Hatton out to end the bout 2:59 into the round. Hatton sprawled helplessly on the canvass after Pacquiao’s left hand, with referee Kenny Bayless’s saying that “[he] didn’t have to count.” Hatton lay on the canvass for several minutes before getting up; he was eventually taken to a local hospital for a precautionary brain scan.


Pacquiao’s win makes him one of only two (the other being Oscar De La Hoya) to win six world championships in six different weight divisions at that time. The knockout won him the Ring Magazine knockout of the year for 2009.

The defeat was the second in Hatton’s career but also his second in four fights, after a defeat to Floyd Mayweather, Jr.; the recent mixed performance, combined with the speed of the defeat to Pacquiao, led some to call for Hatton to retire.

After the fight, Hatton had put his career on a long hiatus, with rumours of a comeback circulating the media since. However on July 7, 2011, Hatton announced his retirement from boxing.
