Ricky Hatton TKOs Paulie Malignaggi

While the rest of the country was witnessing Texas Tech p*ss away their national title hopes, I was watching Ricky Hatton vs. Paulie Malignaggi. Rumors had Hatton ending his career after this fight, and he may have ended his career in style with absolute domination of Malignaggi.

The Hatton supporters were out in full force, as Hatton was peppering the Brooklyn man with left hooks and shots to the body. On occasion he did hurt Malignaggi to the point of nearly knocking him down, but he was unable to. Didn't matter though, it was a thorough butt-whipping and trainer Buddy McGirt waved the towel in the 11th round.

It's the first time Malignaggi has been stopped, and the second time he's lost. He is a painful fighter to watch, jabbed more than power punched, and he cannot stop holding.


On the Undercard: James Kirkland impressed by knocking out Brian Vera. He delivered devastating body punches and knocked Vera down 3 times in this wicked beating. Kirkland looks like a good prospect that you don't want to mess around with. He remains undefeated and earned some good reps with his win.

Did you see Hatton come out in the fat suit...pretty clever

Also, Malignaggi was upset when his trainer threw in the towel, but honestly, he was getting soundly whipped and kept grabbing Hatton before Hatton could hit him...what's the difference
