Manny Pacquiao

Just about 20-30 mins ago (11:49 AM in the Phil), one of the worlds Greatest (if not) Boxers of all time Manny “the Pacman” Pacquiao certainly had a reason to smile after he knocked out Diaz with just 36 seconds left in the 9th round of their World Boxing Council lightweight title bout in Las Vegas, Nevada. And he did it the best way possible.

By a KO.

“I didn’t see it coming.” said the former US Olympiad, and WBC Lightweight champ David Diaz, referring to the final blow that finished him off (and his belt) on the ninth round. Diaz also had cuts on her face early on the 2nd and, then on the 5th round making it more impossible for him to see the punches of the Pacman, but that won’t be any alibi.

Before the fight, rumors of Diaz’s strategy of applying pressure on the Pacman to get him out of his game has been heard everywhere, but as it turned out, he was the victim of his strategy, as every round (except for the 7th I guess) was owned by the new WBC Lightweight champ Manny “the Pacman” Pacquiao.

Dave Diaz Knocked Down

Pacquiao now holds 4 belts in different weight classes, making him not only the first Filipino, But the first Asian to accomplish such a thing in the world of boxing.

Is he the greatest boxer of all time? You have to decide on your own.

3 Critical:

  1. Pound-Per-Pound Indeed – now this is what a great pound-per-pound boxer really means. A champion of every weight class he has competed in. Beat that one.
  2. Who’s Next? – a lot of question arise after every Pacquiao victory, and one of the famous one’s is Who’s Next? Is there someone else worth fighting? Is he gonna move another weight class? I just hope he’s not retiring like Mayweather did.
  3. So Certain – I guess we (my friends) are so certain about this thing that no one even placed their bets on Diaz, but instead, we placed our bets on which round he (Diaz) was gonna fall. And I guess 2 of them lost coz they placed their bet on 10 rounds or more.

Just a few more wins and he’ll be as great as Ali! 😀

If he gets to hold 5 belts, then he surely belongs to the greatest list of boxers. And I guess even Ali would agree this time.
