image for Hatton blames Narcolepsy for loss to Manny Pacquiao

Embarrassed Boxer Ricky Hatton has turned to a desperate excuse following his Las Vegas loss to Manny Pacquiao.

The Mancunian known as the "Hitman" described how he has recent problems with the chronic sleep disorder narcolepsy, which caused him to fall asleep in the ring.

"Everyone thinks he knocked me out, but he didn't. That punch wouldn't have done any damage to me, I'm the Hitman. No, all that happened was that I fell asleep and didn't wake up until later on."

This of course isn't the first time a boxer has used this excuse. George Foreman famously described a "strange, and uncontrollable urge to lie down, close my eyes and fall asleep" following his fight in 1974 with Muhammad Ali.

Manny Pacquiao's camp chose to not comment on Hatton's claim.
