    Did you see Hatton get knocked out by Pacquiao? Did anyone expect that to play out the way it did?

    My business partner's dad is James "Smitty" Smith (www.inthiscornertv.com) and he interviewed Hatton a few days before...he said he thought Hatton was going to "walk right through" Pacquiao.

    Moral: Don't bet on boxing (which I didn't).

    Absolutely none because I don't watch it. I don't even know who you're talking about. Having said that - I don't know what some famous people even look like. I've danced with a famous dj for instance - I'd no idea who he was. Just goes to show what happens when you don't watch TV huh?

    And betting - I don't because I don't like putting money at risk. I come from a family that loves a flutter too. They gamble with their money ... I send mine up in smoke big_smile

    I saw the news report (after the event). Haah, what a punch. The fight was billed as the biggest thing in boxing, and it was all over in a few minutes.
    I wonder if the spectators/fans felt ripped off? Bets? Nah, not me.

      I know...that was the sickest knockout I've seen since Mike Tyson was a 19 year old killing machine.

      I really hope Hatton retires now. He's a great guy and I'd hate to see him fade way over another couple of fights.
