Pacquiao vs Diaz

Manny Pacquiao versus David Diaz? WHO WOULD YOU BET?

PACQUIAO: This will be my hardest-fought battle. It’s been over three years since I have changed weight divisions and I will be doing it against the lightweight division’s world champion. I saw how he took the fight to Erik Morales in his last title defense and I’m expecting to see the same firepower out of him when we meet. But this is my drive for five. Five world titles in five different weight classes and I will not be denied. I am fighting for history, for destiny and for my people of the Philippines .”

DIAZ: Manny Pacquiao has beaten many great fighters, especially Mexicans like Morales, Barrera, Marquez, Larios and Solis. That’s why they call him “The Mexicutioner,” said Diaz. “I will shock the world and beat Pacquiao at his own game, power for power. He’s a great champion but he’s fighting in my division – lightweight. I have worked too hard for this world title and I will not give it up to him.”

    David went down face first at Rd 9! Pacquiao once again prove to be the number 1 pound for pound boxer! I like it when Diaz said he can’t deal with Pacman’s speed and he felt like Roach is also inside the Ring punching him!
