Big news from the boxing world this weekend was Manny Pacquiao's destruction of Ricky Hatton on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Since I'm lazy and really busy right now I'll give you the bout info from Wikipedia but you can also find tons of analysis at ESPN Boxing.
Pacquiao knocked down Hatton twice in the first round: a four-punch combo knocked down the Briton the first time; the other knockdown occurred after a combination by Pacquiao with 45 seconds left. On the second round, Pacquiao unleashed a right-left combo to knock down Hatton a third time to end the bout 2:59 into the round. Hatton sprawled helplessly on the canvass after Pacquiao's left hand with referee Kenny Bayless saying that "I 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 world championships in six different weight divisions, although the record depends on how a "world championship" is defined, with many only limiting the "legitimate championships" to those sanctioned by the WBA, WBC, WBO and/or IBF. Pacquiao won four title belts prior to the fight: the WBC flyweight belt, the IBF super bantamweight title, the WBC super featherweight crown and the WBC lightweight championship. He was a "linear" champion in the featherweight division, and after defeating Hatton, became one in the light welterweight division as well. Sugar Ray Leonard said that "If Manny does it, he'll deserve all the accolades anyone can give him. This is one of those records that, man, it's a rare, rare feat."
