RICKY HATTON emerged from hospital here to a chorus of demands that he should quit boxing following his devastating second- round knockout by Manny Pacquiao.

Hatton required a brain scan after Filipino Pacquiao stunned him with two knockdowns in the first round and a chilling knockout in the second at the MGM Grand Arena.

Pacquiao’s highly-respected trainer Freddie Roach said: “It’s difficult for fighters to consider leaving the game, but Ricky should retire.

A knockout like this one is devastating. Very few boxers are ever the same after something like this.”

Hatton, 30, stayed on the canvas for two minutes and was unable to address his 10,000-strong army of fans. His trainer, American Floyd Mayweather snr, also said Hatton should quit.

He confirmed there had been trouble in the pre-fight camp, saying: “He didn’t keep his hands up like I said he
should. He should retire.”

Team lawyer Gareth Williams said Hatton would discuss his future with his father and manager, Ray, in the coming weeks.

Williams added: “Ricky has earned enough money so that he will never have to have another fight to earn a living. It’s his choice.

"But it’s too early to say what will happen. Nobody is closer to Ricky than his dad. I am sure they will talk about it soon.”

Ray Hatton said: “We will support him whatever his decision. He is perfectly all right.”
