- Rep Power
Pacquiao VS Diaz
Sorry if it's a little off-topic. Just wanted to ask if any of you watched the fight or are fans of either of these 2. I just watched it a couple of hours ago, and damn Pacquiao = Legend! LOL at Diaz cussing a couple of times during the postmatch interview, "He was just f*cking fast" and "I said, 'What the f*ck?!'". This match redeemed Pacquiao of that close victory he had over Marquez in which several analysts thought it should have been Marquez or a draw. Moreover if Marquez watched this fight, he now might run away from that rematch he was asking, similar to how he ran away and tried to escape from a rematch he should have had with Pacquiao for about 3 years.
One controversial bout occurred in the undercards, and it was between Soto and Lorenzo. Didn't know much about them but it ended so controversial. I think Joe Cortez should be suspended for a year. That was the worst call ever. On one occassion he even seemed ready to stop the fight even breaking it off and pushing Soto out when he was pummelling Lorenzo, then all of a sudden he lets them continue. WTF?!
In another undercard, I think Santiago from Puerto Rico should have won against Mexico's Luevano, the defending champ. But I guess being the challenger he should have tried to win it more convincingly. But Santiago would have won that if he hadn't lost his footing after an unexpected counterattack from Luevano which cost him a knockdown which pretty much negated his earlier knockdown in round 2.
Manny Pacquiao = No.1 Pound for Pound!
Four major titles in four weight classes!
