Manny Pacquiao and David Diaz made weight Friday (June 27, 2008) at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas for their televised Pay-Per-View (PPV) fight on HBO tomorrow (June 28, 2008).
Based from the pictures, it is clear that both fighters trained hard and with strict discipline to produce their respective physique and apparent tip-top shape and condition. I predict that this might be Manny's toughest fight so far in his career but am of course still hoping for a Philippine/Manny Pacquiao victory. Best of luck to our kababayan!
The weights of the boxers set to fight are as follow:
Manny Pacquiao 134.5 vs David Diaz 135
(WBC Lightweight Championship)
Steven Luevano 126 vs Mario Santiago 125
(WBO Featherweight Championship)
Humberto Soto 130 vs Francisco Lorenzo 130
(WBC interim super featherweight title)
Tye Fields 265 vs Monte Barrett 220
Venue: Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas
