Manny Pacquiao Beats Down David Diaz By Knockout in 9

By Mark Vester

At the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, WBC super featherweight champ Manny Pacquiao (47-3-2, 36KOs) moved up in weight to batter and beat up David Diaz (34-2-1, 17KOs) over nine-rounds to capture the WBC lightweight title.

It was a brilliant debut for Pacquiao at 135-pounds, especially for a guy who started his career at 106-pounds. He was stonger and faster than Diaz, pounding him with big punches from the first-round. He cut the nose of Diaz in the second-round and a few rounds later he busted up the right eye of Diaz, turning the fight into a bloody affair.

In the ninth, a jab followed by a left hand that Diaz never saw coming, sent him down face first to the mat and the referee jumped in to stop the action.

Pacquiao puts his name in the history books as the only Asian fighter to win four major titles in four weight classes.

Full ringside report coming shortly

It was a totally convincing win against a bigger man. Damn, did you see Diaz's face? He actually looked like he collided with a tray of meatballs by round 9. Pacman rightfully P4P #1.
