Does Diaz have any kind of chance? I dont think so....I think Manny either stops him late or wins a wide decision.

I'm pretty dissapointed Pacman is fighting Hatton instead of giving Marquez a rematch..

BigGeorge, If Manny did fight Hatton it wouldn't be till 1st quarter of 09' as Hatton will be fighting the Paulie later this year.

I don't think they'll be fighting this year as Marquez will have his hands full with Casa who is tough as nails....

Who knows who Manny will be fighting IF he gets past Diaz....

Yea, really no interest in this fight. I wouldn't be surprised if it did under 100,000 buys on ppv. Diaz is a strong fighter, but he's going to be so overmatched in the speed department. Diaz is going to have to land something big early to get Pac's respect, but even then the speed will be too much for him. He takes a lot of shots too, even in the fight against Montano. I thought Morales beat Diaz last year when they fought, and Morales was pretty washed up at that point. Ya never know though, it's boxing and stranger things have happened. Pacquiao TKO 4.

I think Manny will win the fight but i must say he is not that good of a fighter to me to be p4p #1

I hesistate to put Manny Pac at the top of the Pound 4 Pound as well...

Anywayz, BigGeorge to answer your question, I dont think Diaz has much of a chance either. I like Manny Pac by UD!

Diaz has no chance here. Manny has the speed, power, youth, skill and chin advantage.

Pacqiuao by KO within 5 rds.

This would be a "competitive" fight. Kinda like Pac vs Larios.

So I take it no one is buying this fight? I'd buy it if it had a good undercard but it doesn't. It looks to be on par with Mayweather-Badlomir's undercard. YOu never know, sometimes the fights turn out to be entertaining but you can tell the promoters didn't even bother to make it look good on paper.

Diaz is a good inside fighter but he has no punch and has porous defense. He might give Pacquiao some trouble early on as Manny tries to figure out whether he wants to charge Diaz or use those new skills he's been working on. Wither way something tells me Diaz loses with his face getting ripped open in the process, like always.

Luevano-Santiago is going to be the best fight on the undercard. That should be a competitive scrap. Also, I'm intrigued by Barrett-Fields. Fields, to me, isn't a very good fighter, but everytime he seems to win. He's tall and seems to have some power. The last really tall guys Barrett fought was Valuev, and we know how that went. With that said, Valuev is better than Fields by a long shot. Barrett is a skillful fighter, who has put together a couple wins. I still think he'll beat Fields by knockout. The other fight on the undercard is Humberto Soto against a telefutura type opponent. So all in all not a terrible undercard. As each day goes by, i feel the urge to order this fight. Just like every other PPV though.

Pacquiao by UD.

Diaz is a tougher fighter than some may give him credit for being. However, recall that his big "win" was over Erik Morales and this was at the downside of Erik's career, highlighted by a good scrap, but also questionable judging in a few rounds. Diaz is a good fighter. However, Pacquiao is a great fighter, and here is where the difference will be noticeable. I predict scores for Manny by something like 116-112 (twice) and 117-111.

I totally agree. But as far as Hatton is concerned, I'm not at all sure that Pacquiao is going to have the pop to ever get past 135. If he can't knock Diaz out (which would be shocking, given that Diaz is slow as hell and has no head movement), then he can forget about 140. And I don't think he's going to 140 any time soon anyway. 135 is loaded: Juan Diaz, Campbell, Katsidis, Khan, Casamayor and JMM.

It would actually be amazing to see JMM beat Casamayor and Pacquiao beat Diaz and then to have their 3rd fight some time late next year.

I think Pacqiuo will win this with a UD but I hope I'm wrong and he carries his power to 135 and gets the stoppage. Diaz is a pretty tough, game, pressure fighter(I thought Morales beat him in a close decision) so I think he might be able to take Manny's shots a little better than expected, at least enough to finish the fight but lose a clear UD.

I believe the PACMAN will walk out from the ring VICTORIOUS via TKO. Diaz wont last eight rounds, he is no match w/ PACMAN. PAQUIAOS power is more deadly as ever at 135lbs. He will be much more devastating boxer bec. of his owesome punching POWER, THOUGHNESS & GREATNESS. Surely no one can bit PAQUIAO in this division, So whats out guys ; Juan Diaz, Casa Mayor, Nate-Campbell, Joan Guzman, SORRY your next!!!...

I give Diaz A good chance of winning here. I will be suprise if Manny wins by knockout especially early like some people are picking. Diaz takes a good punch and has been only stopped once which was by Kendall Holt who is a big JR Welterweight. Even there Diaz was still standing up throwing punches when he was stopped. The question here is how will Pacquaio do at this new weight fighting his strongest opponent yet? Not to take anything away from Pacman but his wins against Morales, Barrera, and Marquez were against faded fighters and they are natural featherweights. Don't forget Morales beat Pacman already and many believe Marquez beat Pacman twice already.

I'm interested to see how's Pacman's power and speed is at lightweight. Other than that I see a good fight here and a possible upset. If Pac wins it will be by decision and even if the fight is close you know it will go to Pac.

Yes, but remember that Manny had a much easier time beating the faded Erik Morales the 2nd and 3rd time then Diaz did against Morales. In fact, that was a gift decision that I (along with many others) feel that Morales had won. So you make a few good points, but some of the others that you make are flawed.

For me... nothing else to say, Diaz will full down in the later rounds folks. PACMAN by TKO8
JD
Not sure he fulls down.
Big Slim Sweet
Manny beats the daylights out of Diaz. Corner stops it after 8.
Eugene
I have followed Manny's career and fights since 2000. Since teaming up with Freddie Roach slowly but surely he has became the almost total package. The key to Manny is the first 2 rounds. He must be in and out landing pubches to the body and then to the head. Plus, he must get past the 4th round without a cut over or under his eye. If all of this is working Manny will beat Diaz either in the 9th round or by unanimous decicion.

How much you guys want to bet that if Pacquiao wins impressively we are going to be seeing tons of:

" Manny can go up to 140 and easily beat Hatton!"

"Manny could go all the way up to 160!"

"Manny v.s Cotto, who wins"

"Manny would easily destroy Marquez this time!"

D-MARV
LOL...
The 140 is really not that unbelievable but everything else is.

BY The Way I would favor Hatton if they fought
