Pacquiao expresses sympathy to Hatton

The Filipino Champion Manny Pacquiao was saddened hearing about Ricky "the Hitman" Hatton's depression.  Hatton had been seen on a video snorting Cocaine, he has been addicted since he lost the fight against Manny Pacquiao.  Hatton has been addicted to drugs and was also reported to have drinking problems.

Manny Pacquiao expressed his sincerity saying that he feels bad about what happened and he hopes that Ricky Hatton will change.  Ricky Hatton had never moved on from his lost to Manny last May 2009.  It was the worst beating in his career, Hatton suffered to early knockouts in round one and was stopped by a huge left hook by Manny Pacquiao on the second round.  It happened so quick that Ricky Hatton didn't even noticed what hit him.

While training at the Elorde Gym in Quezon, Manny Pacquiao has an advice to Hatton that he should renew his faith to God, saying "Don't tell God that you have a great problem but tell your problem that you have a great God."

From a report from BBC Radio, Hatton was said to be devastated.  "He's upset and very down as you'd imagine," Max Clifford, his spokesman said on the show.  "He said he feels he's let everyone down: himself, family, friends and the many fans who have been nothing but supportive."

Pacquiao wasn't the only lost Hatton had.  His first lost came from Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. when he climbed to welterweight division, where he was also knocked out on the 10th round.  But it was Manny Pacquiao's loss that made a huge impact to his career.  Both fighter fought in the 140lbs, where Ricky Hatton is said to be unbeaten.
