Hatton gets hammered by Pacquiao

Ricky Hatton's career in boxing is in doubt after he was knocked out in the second round of his light-welterweight world championship bout by Manny Pacquiao.

The Filipino boxer floored Hatton late in the second round with a brutal knock-out punch. The Mancunian boxer was later hospitalized following only his second loss in 45 fights.

The result of the fight never really looked in doubt as Pacquiao knocked Hatton to the canvass twice in the first round. The fight looks to have been a sad and violent end to a brilliant career for Hatton.
