On Saturday, Ricky Hatton and Floyd Mayweather faced off in Las Vegas for this year’s fight of the century. Mayweather, solidifying his position as boxing’s best pound-for-pound fighter knocked Hatton out in the tenth round to earn a convincing victory over a fighter some thought would pose a threat. Apparently not.
Mayweather was obviously the better fighter throughout and in the tenth, he ended Hatton’s chances when he knocked him flat on his back. Hatton’s girlfriend, Jennifer Dooley, made the news circuit when she announced she was leaving her position at the Manchester College of Art and Technology in order to attend the fight in Vegas. Perhaps she just should’ve stayed in England.
Dooley, who was at ringside to watch the fight, reacted quite emotionally when Mayweather knocked Hatton out and the Daily Mail has the pictures. If watching your beau fight is this stressful, perhaps you could, I don’t know, root from afar? Anyway, I resized the pics to fit them here. As I mentioned, these images are courtesy of the Daily Mail. Enjoy:

Fanhouse also has a YouTube of these reactions if you’d like to see them in moving picture format. I wonder what she would’ve done if he actually would’ve won the fight…
