Win or lose, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is still the Filipinos Boxing Champion

Manny Pacquiao promised to give a good fight for WBC light weight champion David Diaz. Can he snatch the crown away from Diaz? No one has the answer although sports analyst can speculate and make their own predictions. Whoever wins, it is expected that the Diaz-Pacquio title bout will be a crowd drawer with the entire Philippine boxing fans again cheering for their idol Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao comes June 28 (June 29 in Manila).

Isa na namang  karangalan para sa bansang Pilipinas ang inaasahang ihahatid ng pambansang kamao  sa nalalapit nilang pagtutuos ni Diaz. Win or lose para sa mga Pilipino, si Manny pa rin ang kanilang champion sa larangan ng boxing.


Pacquiao determined to win 4th world title


Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao was scheduled to breeze into Las Vegas at the head of a long convoy at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, determined to write his name in the record books as the first Filipino and Asian fighter to win world titles at four different weight divisions.

Pacquiao and his convoy of some 14 vehicles were scheduled to arrive some 30 minutes after WBC light weight champion David Diaz who was certain to arrive in  modest fashion and to a less enthusiastic welcome because his style is low-key.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, trying his best to draw the fans in the face of a floundering US economy and skyrocketing gasoline prices, predicted the Pacquiao-Diaz “Lethal Combination” showdown to be a great fight.

Arum said: “What is at stake is more than just a boxing match. You have Manny Pacquiao fighting for a fourth world title at a different weight class and David Diaz defending his title for his beloved city of Chicago .”

Pacquiao himself reiterated it would be a great fight and said, “I will do my best to win the fight. I will let everyone know who the best is on June 28th , June 29th in Manila where the fight will be telecast.”

Diaz said he had “trained very hard for this fight”, adding “I am a good fighter and a champion. He (Pacquiao) is a strong and aggressive fighter. However, I am up for the challenge.”

Diaz earlier told Viva Sports his best chance of winning would be if the fight goes the distance while Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach predicts his ward will wear down the champ and then take him out in the later rounds.







  1. yumaman si Pacman dahil sa boxing. Yayaman din kayo dahil sa sariling pagsisikap. Ako naman I want to be a millionaire.

  2. Siyanga pala may sakit ba kayo sa bulsa? Pasyal lang sa aking Klinika at may gamot tayo diyan.

  3. Mabigat ang laban na ito ni Manny doc. Pero sabi nga nila, highly motivated ang champion na makasungkit uli ng isa pang korona.

    Kaso depending champion din itong si Diaz. Malakas sumuntok at may koronang ipinagtatanggol. Hindi basta-bast magpapatalo dito kay Pacman.

    Kung mamalasin si Pacman dito baka korona ng patay (talo) ang masusungkit. Huwag naman sana.

  4. Pacman, matatalo iyan dahil sa mga pulitiko. Sana hindi para happy na naman tayo.

  5. Bad karma kasi ang iniiwan ng mga public officials and politicians ang kanilang bayan pagkatapos silay salantahin ng bagyo.

  6. Manny has to win. He’s still too fast. But turning old. If Diaz figures out Manny’s strategy Manny will be toast.

  7. Hi donuts thanks for dropping by. Absolutely right, Manny should finish him earlier to insure victory if he can.
