In a very exciting fight, Manny Pacquiao knocked David Diaz out in the 9th round earning the WBC Lightweight Championship belt and the record of being the only Asian fighter to win world titles in four weight divisions. As a Filipino, I have to say I am really proud he is my countryman. David Diaz fought a good fight and I thank him for trying his best. Unfortunately for him, PacMan, on his move up to lightweight, also brought with him his agility and punching power. Diaz was no match for PacMan as he got hit a lot and obtained a cut on his right eyebrow. It was a bloody fight for Diaz.

What's next for Manny? Rumour is that he plans to move to 140 lbs and fight Ricky Hatton. Probably sometime in November... I think he should stay in lightweight before moving up again so suddenly.
You can download the fight here, although it starts in round 2. If it doesn't work then try VLC Media Player, although Windows Media Player should work. It's in Chinese so sorry about that, but hey, it's free, right?
