Not content to weigh in merely on marquee sporting events like the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup championships, EA Sports is throwing its weight into another contest. This time it's professional boxing.
Electronic Arts odds makers are calling Saturday night's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton in an effort to promote the upcoming release of Fight Night Round 4. According to EA's simulation of the fight, Pacquiao will knock out Hatton in the 11th round by knockout.
We expect Mr. Hatton to announce his withdrawal from the match soon, based on EA's findings and hope that all future decisions, in all aspects of daily life, will be handled by an EA entertainment product of some sort.
