Pacquiao in a masterful exercise of his boxing skills soundly destroyed David Diaz moments ago in Round 9 of the main event. In a show of dominance reminiscent of Manny's first fight with Barrera, Manny was just too much for the Chicagoan - Diaz could barely connect his shots. The Filipino was just too fast for the American. As the rounds went on, Diaz's face was a testament of the punishment he was receiving - two cuts and a huge lump. One power shot to another the commentators were wondering how soon would the referee stop the fight and if Manny's stamina could last the entire twelve rounds. But Vic Drakulich, the ref, had no intention of stopping the fight and the match went on and Manny's endurance also held on pounding Diaz with powerful shots and combos - both the left and right hand. Mercifully, on the ninth round Pacquiao found an opening and threw a left hitting Diaz on the chin. He fell and MANNY IS THE NEW WBC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!! Pound for pound, I don't care. YAHOO!!!
MANNY IS THE BEST FILIPINO BOXER EVER!
