Manny Pacquiao vs. David Diaz on June 28

By Mark Vester

Promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank has said that WBC super featherweight champion Manny Pacquiao will indeed move up in weight to the lightweight limit of 135-pounds. He will challenge WBC lightweight champ David Diaz, also promoted by Top Rank, on June 28 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

On Saturday night in Las Vegas, Pacquiao won a close split-decision over Juan Manuel Marquez to capture the super featherweight title. He suffered a bad cut on his right eyelid. If the cut does not heal in time for the June date, the fight will probably move to a date in July. The fight is expected to land on HBO pay-per-view.

[QUOTE=IncuFan;3256049]Win, lose, or draw I felt like Pac was going to move up and fight David Diaz. If he gets the rematch with JMM I bet it happens at 135. I think Pac will beat Diaz, and this will give…
