Pacquiao is Just So F@$#ing Fast

I’m not a big boxing fan but when Manny Pacquiao is fighting I can’t help but pay attention. Heck, the entire Philippines and all Filipinos in the world pay attention. And rightly so. Pacquiao is the best pound for pound fighter in the world. And he proves it again by knocking out David Diaz in the 9th. Hataw!

"LAS VEGAS — Although Manny Pacquiao is the new 135-pound
champion, he’s no mere lightweight.

"At any weight, in any ring, the Filipino phenomenon looks like
the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

"Packing five new pounds of power in his usual stunning hand
speed, Pacquiao captured a title belt in his fourth weight class
Saturday night, stopping David Diaz in the ninth round to claim the
WBC lightweight championship at the Mandalay Bay Events Center." [read more]

Pacquiao dominated the match from the first round. I felt sorry for Diaz early on with all the blood gushing out of his face. But Diaz is a real fighter and kept holding on for as long as he could. In the end, Diaz was no match for Pacquiao’s speed. In the words of Diaz, Pacquiao is just so f@$#ing fast, Shiyeet.

Congratulations to Pacquiao! Hats off to Diaz for putting up a good fight. And kudos to both boxers for displaying good sportsmanship.
