6,000 fight fans, surprisingly about a third of them Filipino, turned out at the Trafford Centre in Manchester, England for a kick-off press conference for the May 2 ‘The East vs the West’ world title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky HAtton at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. “On May 2 I’ll be the new pound-for-pound king,” promised Hatton. “I’ve never been beaten at 10 stone (140lbs). This is my weight. This is where I do best. I promise all my fans I’ll win for Manchester!” Pacquiao wished Ricky good luck and stated “I’m going to win it for the Philippines. Ricky’s a very good fighter.” Pacman’s promoter Bob Arum promised victory “for all our Filipino brothers and sisters.” Manny will face Ricky in a darts competition at a pub in Manchester this afternoon.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
