The boxing world is in a recession. Not a financial recession but, a talent recession that has been brewing for years. The sport has been looking for a new star since before Floyd Mayweather Jr. That star is Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao.

Manny is a bright star in a sea of darkness. A star that has a cult like following in his homeland(Philippines), where he has transcended the title of athlete and has become a widely loved public figure. A public figure who has taken the opportunity to become involved in music, film, television & politics while maintaining a 48 win - 3 loss record. This record is a no fluff roster with some of boxings biggest names gracing its loss column including Oscar De La Hoya,  Marco Antonio Barrera, and Érik Morales.

You dont become the fighter Manny has become without hard work, determination and a great team to fall back on. His team is headed by Freddie Roach a top tier trainer who has worked with some of the best fighters on some of their best nights. I can continue my love story for this fighter but id much rather you all tune in on May 2, 2009 as Manny takes on on of my favorite British bruisers, Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton. The fight will be on HBO PPV. Also if you would like a preview of both fighters check out HBO's Documentry Show "Pacquiao/Hatton 24/7" which chronicles the fighters as they prepare for their big showdown.

A Mayweather comeback?!?!?!? I hope not. It might be embarrasing but, HBO would love him for it cause 24/7's ratings will go through the roof for his comeback fight.

Hmmmm....like I told @angelodignacio and @MichelleDunn I love both these fighters, so I'm going to be happy no matter who wins. But, I've become a little partial to Hatton. They're both better than Mayweather Jr. and he'll come out of hiding to fight the winner, no doubt. Hopefully, this time they kick the bleep out of his cocky self!
