Pac: I'm too quick for Hatton

Manny Pacquiao is confident his speed in the ring will prove too much for Ricky Hatton during their eagerly awaited showdown in Las Vegas next Saturday.

Hatton will step into the ring with the Filipino legend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 2 to defend his IBO and Ring Magazine light-welterweight titles.

But Pacquiao, widely acknowledged as the world's best pound-for-pound fighter, says his quick hands and agile mind will more than compensate for the Englishman's superior size and strength.

"I don't care if he's bigger or stronger," he said. "Boxing is more than that.

"It's also mental and about the quickness of your mind and quickness of your body. That's very important. Speed is very important."

Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs) is unbeaten at 140lb and in the build-up to this fight has made much his perceived advantages.

But Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs) has been studying Hatton's fights on video every night for the past month and believes he has identified the Mancunian's greatest threat.

"Ricky Hatton is a kind of different fighter to what I have been fighting before," he added. "He's a good and strong fighter.

"I know he has a very strong left hand and I have to take care of that and focus on that."

The 30-year-old southpaw was, however, unwilling to reveal the methods he proposed to use to nullify the danger.

"I've studied a lot of techniques for him," said Pacquiao, for whom victory would bring a world title in a sixth different weight division.

"I don't want to tell anyone what. I want to keep it a surprise, what we have been doing in training."
