Hatton’s easy charm has been tested in the buildup to this fight as Pacquiao’s ascension to superstar status in the aftermath of his December destruction of Oscar De La Hoya has reduced ‘The Hitman’ to the B-side of this number one record. But in that vein Hatton remains one helluva B-side. Hatton Relishes Underdog Role
