Manny Pacquiao Wins...Convincingly


We were at Monte Vista yesterday, June 29, 2008 to celebrate my tito's birthday. It was a fun day though the weather was a bit gloomy. Arrived there are aroung 9:30 am and was surprised to see that they were showing the Pacquiao-Diaz bout live on Pay-Per-View. There were a group of people huddled infront of the makeshift white screen that beams the fight live from Vegas and they are eagerly waiting for the main event. I myself was excited since I was not expecting that the resort would air the fight (at least i saved around 3hundred pesos... :D)


I wrote in my previous article that I would not miss the fight since Pacquiao shoots for his 4th world title in 4 different weight classes. I was expecting at least a Unanimous Decision in favor of Pacquiao but never a KO. Until round 9 came and Pacman ended Diaz's reign as lightweight champ. And ALaS! I lost a hundred bucks on a winner take all friendly bet with some officemates on predicting what round Diaz would be knocked out. Though I lost, I am still happy since another Filipino has shown the world that showcases the Philippines are home to great talents and is not just about Corruption and Dirty politics.

from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_Magazine_pound_for_pound

This table lists the current pound-for-pound rankings of The Ring magazine (the self-proclaimed "Bible of Boxing", owned by Golden Boy Promotions Inc.), which some boxing experts and fans regard as an authoritative source for ranking the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world.[1] Floyd Mayweather Jr. had been ranked number-one in The Ring's P4P rankings from 2005 until he announced his retirement on June 6, 2008, after which he was replaced by Manny Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather Jr. was preceded by Bernard Hopkins, who was in turn preceded by Roy Jones Jr.

Nicknamed “Money Mayweather” and “Pretty Boy,” Mayweather (39-0, 25 KOs) won six world boxing championships in five different weight classes. He is the former WBC welterweight champion.
