Ricky Hatton-Manny Pacquiao: Watch Out for Manny' Wicked Right Hook!

Bryan Trafford hit the nail right on the head. The Hitman might just go down the same way he did with Mayweather Jr.—with a well-timed right hook to the head!

I seriously doubt if such a glaring defect in the Hitman's game can (shall?) escape the keen eyes of Freddie Roach. The Pacman should have prepared for Hatton's weakness.

Let us just wait and see. Pacman has the tools to execute this kind of a punch. It takes just a little practice for him, I am sure. Pacman's cheering fans might just have a reason to celebrate.

I viewed that Donaire punch on Darchinian on my laptop over, maybe, 50 times, and it never fails to impress me. The angle of the camera was directly on the back of Donaire, and one could see the contraction of the muscles at the left part of his back. It was awesome! You must see this video.

One could easily miss the contraction of the back muscles, if not for the slow motion mode of the fight. Due to the impact of the punch, I even thought that Donaire could have been injured, delivering the punch.

On different angles of the cameras, the punch cannot be seen easily. It was only at one particular angle of the camera that this muscle contraction can be viewed. It was really awesome!

Remember, Darchinian had to be carried away on a stretcher after the fight! It must be the worst KO punch I have seen suffered by a boxer of Darchinian caliber.

Donaire did it with his left lead hand. The Pacman could do it with his right hand!

In the last fights of the Pacman, he had been using that right hand more often, so a KO from the same hand is not a far-off possibility!
