Feb 9, 2009  •  Post A Comment

HBO has set its first pay-per-view boxing match in 2009 with a May 2 junior welterweight battle between Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton, Multichannel News reports. The fight will match up two fighters who have proven to draw viewers: about 1.25 million people paid to watch Pacquiao’s Dec. 6 technical knockout win against Oscar De La Hoya, while Hatton drew 800,000 purchases in his 2006 fight against now retired Floyd Mayweather, the trade paper says.
