Really, if you keep walking into Manny Pacquiao with your hands down, the outcome's not really in doubt. Manny is so crazy fast. You can't even see some of the shots in real time, and the super-slow motion seems like regular speed. The craziest part was where Ricky throws a left hook, and Manny throws a right hook, catches him right on the chin, then immediately ducks the left hook Ricky threw, and then Hatton goes down. We're not talking about one motion where Manny throws and ducks at the same time. We're talking the guy sees the opening, gets in position to throw the perfect punch, throws it, hits it, and THEN gets ducks the punch that Hatton was throwing at the same time.
My prediction? JMM beats Floys, and Manny has a dilemna on his hands.
I think anyone that follows boxing knew that Pac would win this fight with ease. Hatton is a neat story, but he's just not that skilled. More of a brawler who can take a punch, but not close to Pac's level.
Now I will be really interested to see Pac vs. Mayweather. I'm just not sure how that would go down. Both are so fast and so skilled. I really can't wait to see it happen and have no clue who to pick.
I thought Hatton was actually improving in round 2, and if he hadn't gotten caught with that shot at the end he would have (IMO) been able to do some things. I'm not saying I think he would have won or anything, but I liked what he was doing as he got more into the fight.
I can't see Marquez beating Mayweather. There's no way he hits Floyd enough to accumulate damage and he doesn't have one punch KO power. Plus, I can see Floyd winning close rounds because of what is on the line - the eventual Manny/Floyd huge megafight.

It would've had to have been five rounds of a pure slugfest to live up to the hype, so in that sense, the fight was disappointing. Even still, it was a good mano-a-mano bout that really put both men's styles into full view.
