Ricky Hatton should consider himself lucky that Manny Pacquiao's knockout punch didn't kill him for more than two minutes. Unfortunately for three Filipinos, it killed them permanently.
Three people in the Philippines died of heart attacks approximately at the moment Pacquiao's devastating knockout punch connected with Hatton's jaw. One man died celebrating Hatton's knockdown while another died at the beginning of the round. The third, a tricycle driver, collapsed as Hatton took the finishing shot.
The reason given for all the deaths was excitement from watching the nation's hero fight. One has to think that shame had something to do with the tricycle driver's death. 64 years and still a tricycle driver? That bike promotion was probably never going to happen.
