Should Hatton call it a day after Pacquiao defeat?
Ricky Hatton is considering his future after favourite Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines claimed the IBO light-welterweight title with a stunning second round knockout of the Briton on Saturday.
The 30-year-old Pacquiao twice knocked the Englishman to the canvas in the opening round before ending the fight with a stinging left hook at the MGM Grand Hotel’s Garden Arena.
Hatton is a proud man but the sight of Floyd Mayweather Jr coming out of retirement may prompt him to stay on.
Then again, at least he would have Manchester City if he quit boxing.
