With Manny claiming his fourth championship belt in stunning fashion against David Diaz, many people will now look for the youtube videos of the fight’s highlights and of course, the highly-touted but less than exciting Round 9 Knockout by Manny. If you are reading this post, then you’ve come to the right place. Below is the full ninth round knockout video and some slow motion and some highlights.
The People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao promoted his June 28 fight against Chicago native David Diaz in his visit at the Windy City. He was warmly welcomed by his Filipino fans who joined him in pep rally at the Federal Plaza, May 21. The WBC super featherweight champion created quite a stir as he received a warm welcome in the said event. In this multi-city tour Pacquiao promoted his upcoming clash with the WBC lightweight titleholder. In a chase to become the first ever Filipino and Asian to hold four titles in four divisions, Pacman vowed to “give a good fight for the honor of our country, in the name of Jesus Christ earlier at a news conference with his Diaz.
His opponent, Chicago native, David Diaz had his string of followers, tagging his family including his mother and father and a band of supporters some wearing specialized “Team Diaz” vests and jackets along. With Pacman in one table, Diaz received an applause from the people in the conference with his speech. “It’s gonna be an all-out war between Manny and myself. Manny is a straightforward fighter as I am, and we’re both going to go at it. But the only thing that’s going to happen there is I am going to win the fight,” he said. “We’re going to bring back the belt to Chicago.”
“Hopefully the Filipino people out there can forgive for that, but I can’t allow it [Pacquaio victory],” he said. “We’ve been in this situation before. This is not a strange territory for me. We’ve been the underdog, but we’ve managed to somehow, someway come out with a victory and I don’t see why we can’t do it on June 28. May the best man win, and I believe that man’s is going to be me.”
The two guys will definitely be tru to their words of exhibiting a great fight. After all, these two are experts in punching. Manny is the faster guy. David is the bigger and stronger guy, so it’s gonna be one of the classic fights of our generation. Pacquiao (46-3-2, 34 KOs) currently holds four world titles, including the World Boxing Council super featherweight belt. On the other hand, Diaz, 31, (34-1-1, 17 KOs), successfully defended his title by defeating another Mexican star Erik Morales, last year, whom Pacquiao also defeated in the past.
