Anyone catch the fight few hours ago against David Diaz? That was one hell of a performance from Manny. Still had his speed to go with his power. Especially since he moved up to lightweight. Could Manny possibly be the current best pound-for-pound fighter today?
Edwin Valero may be his next opponent on Nov. 8 and for those who don't know who Valero is, he's real dangerous. It's just that he was banned from Nevada. But it depends all on Manny since there is speculation that he'll bulk up to fight Ricky Hatton.
I'm Filipino and I'm damn proud to see Pacquiao represent.

yeah last night's fight was ownage. there wasnt a single round that i could recall seeing a single punch land solidly from diaz. how about those undercards tho? first one goes the distance, second one is a first round KO by the UNDERDOG, and the third one with a controversial ending (that IMO was horribly officiated).
im actually kind of scared of the thought of manny moving up to 140 to fight hatton, though it would be a great fight to watch.

I'd be sending my case to the committee if I was Humberto Soto. He got robbed in that fight. He was dominating the whole match; there wasn't once that he was losing, and he gets DQ'd. For what? The punch to the back of the head was nothing but a glare. Terrible call. That kind of call makes boxing's image look bad.
Yeah, I'd like to see him against Hatton. Although it wouldn't be for a while because Ricky has an opponent that has been waiting to fight him for a while. I think he'll stay down at lightweight for another match and then move up and try for his 5th title in his 5th weight division. And if he does that, there'll be no doubt that Manny would be the best pound-for-pound boxer today.
That's awesome, bro.
I loved Diaz's post-fight interview. He told it how he saw it... "He's just too FCKING fast. I could take the power punches, it's just he's too FCKING fast."
