Pacquiao Vs. Hatton: Manny Has Earned The Lion’s Proportion

Reports have surfaced that Manny Pacquiao is not going to combat Ricky Hatton on a 50-50 break up, and I don’t blame him.  Manny is the draw and Manny deserve’s the lion’s proportion. Manny’s wants a 60-40 break up and Ibelieve he deserves it. 


Why is Manny the draw? Besides beating De La Hoya, he has fought within the U.S. over 15 times in various towns inclusive of L.A., San Francisco, San Antonio, Memphis, and of route Las Vegas. He has fought in one of a kind countries; Japan, Thailand, and of route thePhilippines. He has also fought warring parties from a variety ofethnicities, Thais, Japanese, Koreans, Kazakhstanis, Colombians, Dominicans, South Africans, Australians and of course Mexicans. The majority of these fights were televised name fights. 

What does all this information imply? It means that Manny has been seen all around the global no longer handiest by means of his fanatics, however his warring parties’ lovers, whom he defeated with grace and humility. 

Let’s now not forget that in the United States, Manny is the person. Manny is greater popular than most American fighters. In truth after beating Oscar De La Hoya he is greater famous than any American, Mexican-American, or Mexican fighter obtainable. He has hung out with the Celtics and has been visited by NBA stars and Hollywood stars. 

Hatton’s U.S. and global recognition pales in evaluation to Manny’s. As a testament to Manny’s 2008 achievement, he was voted as 2008 fighter of the yr on many media retailers and ESPN rated Manny as 2008 global athlete of the year.   

In assessment Ricky Hatton has fought handiest six times inside the United States, inclusive of the second combat in his career. He has fought a further combat in Germany. The rest of Hatton’s fights have occurred in England.   

Hatton’s supporters may also declare that Hatton is the champ and has the belt. Who cares?!!! When Pacquiao fought Marco Antonio Barrera for the primary time, there has been no belt on the road. In truth, the largest fight and most-watched combat of Pacquiao’s career was anon-titlebeat-down of Oscar De La Hoya. 

Prior to that fight Oscar harped on Manny’s rating because the pound-for-pound nice. More essential than the belt, and the pound-for-pound name, is the celebrity strength that a fighter generates. Manny clearer is the celebrity with the recognizable face and crowd-attractive style actually visible and known around the world. 

Manny also has a extraordinary Plan B if Hatton were to say no. Floyd Mayweather is said to have interest in preventing Manny and it’s miles a combat that would do as nicely if no longer higher than Manny vs. Hatton.

Hatton’s supporters might also say that Hatton can promote out Wembley Stadium—a moot point whilst we do not forget that maximum of the money the fight can generate could be in the United States due to PPV income. 

However there may be absolute confidence that Hatton can generate PPV income. To account for Hatton’s Euro popularity, Ibelieve Hatton must be entitled to a 50-50 split on any English PPV buys. I’d give Hatton a 50-50 cut up of PPV buys in all of Europe, however Hatton has didn’t continuously combat outside of Europe and there are numerous Filipino immigrants in Europe who will buy the fight because of Manny. In truth the bulk of Euro-Filipino immigrants might be watching the Manny combat on May 2. 

If the Hatton-Pacquiao combat is to take location on May 2, 2009, Manny Pacquaio have to get the 60-40 cut up he needs and Ricky Hatton must be entitled to a 50-50 cut up of all PPV buys in England.  Manny’s repute because the pound-for-pound fine fighter, his reputation globally and in the United States, his 15 fights in the United States and prevailing the title of 2008fighter of the year and 2008 worldwide athlete of the 12 months entitles Manny to the lion’s percentage of the pot.
