For a long time, David Diaz dreaded seeing video footages of Manny Pacquiao’s fights. The Chicago native knows that, invariably, his knockout loss to the pound-for-pound king on June 28, 2008 would be highlighted.
That was Diaz after his lost to Manny Pacquiao, the current best pound for pound fighter in the world! But that’s all over now. Others fared worse. Dela Hoya quits sitting on his stool. Hatton good a good night sleep and Cotto took a beating. Now Diaz is fighting his way back up the glory ladder. And he’s friends with Manny Pacquiao. Come to think of it, it looks like most of the Pacman’s former foes are his friends. Take Hatton and probably soon with Cotto.
Anyway, David Diaz will be an undercard fight in the Pacquio v Clottey ticket and he’s rooting for his friend Manny Pacquiao.
