Video of Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton Sniffing Cocaine

The shameful video of 31-year-old England's national hero Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton sniffing cocaine were captured at a Manchester hotel two weeks ago.

The legendary boxer nicknamed The Hitman for his ring victories was caught on camera sniffing cocaine in a shocking 10-hour drink and drugs binge. Also in the said hotel is Hatton's close pal and fellow fighter Emma Bowe who witnessed Ricky Hatton's devouring cocaine in her hotel bathroom and bedroom.

Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton was knocked down in second round by Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao during their International Boxing Organization Junior Welterweight title fight last year.

Margarito Cleared to Fight Pacquiao in Texas

It's final, the much anticipated junior middle weight title fight between the Filipino boxing superstar Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao and the former welterweight champion from Mexico, Antonio 'Tony' Margarito will be held November 13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium.

Antonio Margarito got the go signal to return to the boxing arena after he got cleared by the Texas Department of Lisensing and Regulation. As you remember, California Athletic State Commission revoked Margarito's license, along with his trainer Javier Capetillo, after the Commission found evidence that an embedded plastic like substance wraps on Margarito's hands prior to his fight against Shane Mosley last January 2009.

"After a thorough review of his application, it was determined Mr. Margarito met the requirements of the Texas Combative Sports Acts and Rules, " Executive Director William Kuntz said in a statement posted on the department's website.

The reinstatement was made days after his application to fight faced uncertainties in California and Nevada. So, watch out for the coming fight of Pacman and Margarito.

Below is the sched for 3 cities press tour hosted by Bob Arum and HBO. Sales of the tickets for the upcoming fight between Pacquiao vs Margarito will also be announced on the said press tour. (via

Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao vs Antonio 'Tony' Margarito in November

Pacman Pacquiao of the Philippines vs Tony Margarito of Mexico.
I hope this November 15 fight will materialized, unlike the much awaited fight of the year that didn't push through between the two top boxers of the world, Pacman and Money.

The boxing match between Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao and Antonio 'Tony' Margarito is fight for the vacant super welterweight championship. However, the venue of the said fight is still uncertain, because they are still waiting for Margarito's license.

If you're still remember, Margarito was suspended for a year by the California State Athletic Commission, because of what happened last January 2009 between his fight with Mosley. He was caught red-handed with a hardened substance in his knuckle pad during their fight. Mosley knocked him out in the 9th round of their match.

Arum also said that he decide to choose Antonio Margarito instead of Miguel Cotto, whom lost by Pacman in the 12th round of their match last November, because it would be perceived as more competitive bout. The said bout will be offered on HBO Pay-Per-View.

Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey, were all smiles as they standing under the world's largest high-definition television and surrounded by Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders during the announcement of their coming Welterweight fight on Tuesday, 13 March 2010 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

As we all knew that the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight did not materialized, as both camp have different stand regarding urine and blood testing. And also not to mentioned, too much money and pride involved for the said fight not to happen.

The scheduled March 13 bout will be the first boxing match at the $12 billion Cowboys Stadium. "This is going to be the Super Bowl of Boxing," said Freddie Roach, Pacman's trainer.

Not really. What we really hoped-for is the match up between Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr., the kind of match that we can really labeled as the "Super Bowl of Boxing".

But as the Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, " We're going to make this one of the most interesting fights to view that there's ever been."

Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs) from the Philippines is widely considered as the #1 pound-for-pound and voted as the best fighter in the world, against Joshua "the Hitter" Clottey (35-3-0, 25 KOs) from Accra, Ghanna and resides in New York. Last November fight, Pacquiao beat Miguel Cotto, who happens to beat Clottey in a split decision.

So, let's cross our fingers and hope for a pretty good fight. =)
