They say good news come in bunches and the good news keeps coming for the city of Manchester, England. First, Manchester United won the Champons League on Wednesday, and tonight Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton returned to the ring and the victory circle after a tough and very Hattonesqe victory over Juan Lazcano. Hatton (44-1, 34KO’s) worked Luzcano’s body and head with his trademark left and right hooks. Lazcano (37-5-1, 27 KO’s) for his part, put up a great fight, almost sending the British Sensation to the canvas in the 8th and 10th round. Although not as sharp as he wanted, Hatton showed the boxing world that he has moved past his loss at the hands of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Judges at ringside scored the bout 120-110, 118-110, and 120-108 all for Hatton.
– Paulie Malignaggi (25-1, 5KO’s) escaped Manchester with a unsatisfying win again Lovemore N’dou, but not his hair. Malignaggi claims to have broken his right hand in the 6th round, hand a hard time dealing with the rough and rugged N’dou. The fight did little to help Malignaggi shed the mask of being a boring fighter. The most interesting part of the bout came in the middle of rounds 8 and 9 where Malignaggi had his dreadlocks cut by his corner men.
