Manny was never this one-shot, destructive kind of puncher at 130 and up anyway. The Hatton KO was a lighting in a bottle kind of moment, literally a picture-perfect shot where everything lined up just right. Pretty much all of his ko's since stepping up from Featherweight have been of the accumulated punishment variety.

Perhaps more importantly, his last few outings have been against guys not exactly known for being easy to hurt, let alone stop.
Okay, but, problematically, if you're a blithering idiot, none of this nuanced answer can be understood. Therefore, you're wrong, Poochtard.
