It’s almost time! I’m a Pacquiao fan and I think it is much more even than people are predicting. I hope it is exciting back and forth and then Pacquiao knocks Hatton out late.
I found it interesting that so many Brits/Hatton fans were at the weigh-in and not many Filipinos. I’m looking forward to the crowd at the fight. While I don’t really like the soccer hooligan feeling at Hatton fights, with the bar song chants and band and stuff, they are passionate and they will be out in force and Manny will have the Filipino fans who live and die with his success and failure so I expect a lot of crowd excitement and energy.
The atmosphere in there should be electric.
It’s also interesting that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is fighting Marquez instead of going after the welterweights or super welter, like I thought he would. This sets up some interesting possible matches like a Marquez-Hatton fight or Pacquiao-Marquez III, which I think, needs to happen to decide it once and for all, or Mayweather-Pacquiao or a rematch with Hatton, depending on how tonight’s fight goes.
