Diaz in Pacquiao-Clottey undercard

Ever since boxing champion Manny Pacquiao stripped David Diaz of his World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight crown in 2008, the former champion never took the loss personally and formed a friendly relationship with the reigning pound-for-pound king.

When Pacquiao came to Chicago to promote his fight with Oscar de la Hoya, Diaz was among those who welcomed the Filipino boxing icon at the Windy City.

Pacquiao returned the favor by inviting Diaz during his 31st birthday celebration last year in his home in General Santos City.

And when Pacquiao stakes his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight crown against Joshua Clottey on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium, the pound-for-pound king will be rooting for Diaz when he faces Humbero “Zorrita" (Little Fox) Soto (50-7-2).

Diaz (35-2-1) will be fighting in the Pacquiao-Clottey undercard against the reigning WBC super featherweight champion Soto, who knocked out Pacquiao’s younger brother, Bobby.

The younger Pacquiao suffered a seventh-round knock out against Soto in the undercard of the Miguel Cotto-Zab Judah match in 2007 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"I feel good. I am prepared to go to war and get the victory," said David during a public media workout at the Jabb Boxing Gym in Chicago.

"I will be in shape and will be alright. I don’t predict the outcome of my fight. But I will be prepared to go the distance for 12 rounds," added Diaz, who will dispute the vacant WBC lightweight title with Soto.

If Diaz makes good his pledge to beat Soto, his efforts would make Pacquiao happy since it would avenge his brother’s KO loss in 2007.

The 33-year-old Diaz is coming off a 10-round majority decision win over former WBC super featherweight and International Boxing Federation (IBF) lightweight world champion Jesus Chavez last September 26, 2009 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Chavez is the same boxer who lost to Humberto Soto, 29, in a 10-round unanimous decision in Mexico last December.

When asked if he will soon be back as a marquee fighter, Diaz said, “we will see what happens in this coming fight and get this belt first."

Asked about the Pacquiao-Clottey match-up, Diaz said “this fight will be tough for Manny. Clottey has a tight defense. But Manny will win this out."

Also featured in the undercard are two-time world champion Jose Luis "El Terrible" Castillo in a welterweight battle against contender Alfonso Gomez and Ireland’s John Duddy in a middleweight duel with Michael "Myckol" Medina.

The Event : Manny Pacquiao versus Joshua Clottey

Manny Pacquiao (50-3-2, 38 KOs), the 7 division world champion and the reigning WBO welterweight champion will defend his title from Ghanaian Joshua Clottey (35-3, 21 KOs), the former IBF Welterweight champion.

“The Event” put forward Clottey a shot at the Pound-for-Pound king Manny Pacquiao at the World Boxing Organization (WBO) World Welterweight Title at the Cowboys Stadium.

Manny Pacquaio is ready to fight as seen from his final work out at the wild Card Gym in Los Angeles last monday before taking flight to Dallas, Texas. Together with his entourage they boarded a plane chartered by the said boxer. Freddie Roach is confident with his boxer, Manny, that they can take their opponent down.

Joshua Clottey, on the other side is calm and cool as the day approaches the big fight. The Ghanaian-born boxer did not commented when Freddie Roach predicted the fight a knockout. However, Clottey stated “I have a sharp right hand, a sharp right hand.” He added “I can throw a sharp right from far, so that’s always dangerous”.

The Event is a fight of two premiered boxers: Manny with his strong left punch while Clottey can respond with his strong right hand. Both respected boxers are already ready to battle. Who will seize the WBO World Welterweight Title?

Pacquiao vs. Clottey fight is set on March 13, 2010 at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Pacquiao-Clottey : Undercards

Two promising Filipinos, featherweight Michael Farenas and bantamweight Eden Sonsona get a chance to prove their worthiness as future world title prospects when they see action on the undercard of “The Event” headlined by pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao and Ghana’s tough Joshua Clottey at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium on March 13.

The 25 year old Farenas, a protégé of former two division world champion Gerry Penalosa takes on 35 year old Joe Morales. Morales who has a record of 20-13 and 4 knockouts has dropped ten round decisions to such tough opponents as Rocky Juarez and Joan Guzman and lost by a 10th round TKO to fearsome Rogers Mtagwa. However, records show that Morales has lost six straight bouts although he won a ten round decision over Ildefonso Martinez last November 6.

The hard-hitting southpaw Farenas who has a record of 27-2-3 with 24 knockouts has had a career in which he has faced certified Thai patsies in-between taking on tough Mexican opponents including Walter Estrada (35-9, 24 KO’s) whom he knocked out in the very first round on May 9, 2009.

Farenas won the meaningless World Professional Boxing Federation title with a 9th round knockout over Korea’s Jae Bong Jang last October 3 and then scored a 1st round knockout over unknown Thai fighter Sathian Sokham on January 8, 2010.

Sonsona, a southpaw from General Santos City, hometown of Pacquiao and a fighter discovered by the late Rod Nazario, the former business manager of Pacquiao, will be making his second appearance on a Pacquiao card. Pacquiao had promised Nazario during a visit before the boxing man passed away to give Sonsona exposure and to help steer his career alongside his manager Rommel Nazario, the son of Rod.

The 21 year old Sonsona (20-5, 6 KO’s) faces former world champion Mauricio Pastrana of Colombia who even at 37 still has a lot of fight left in him, although he lost a unanimous twelve round decision to Leon Moore of Guyana in a clash for the vacant Continental Americans and North American Boxing Association titles last September 26.

Pastrana also dropped a unanimous eight round decision to undefeated Victor Fonseca (14-0, 8 KO’s) last July 11 but won by a 3rd round knockout over Victor Peralta of Colombia on June 19, 2009.

Sonsona impressed Pacquiao as well as Top Rank promoter Bob Arum when he scored a smashing 2nd round TKO over Eilon Kedem on the Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto undercard last November 14 before scoring a sensational one-punch knockout to win the vacant Philippine bantamweight title in a battle with Monico Laurente on December 12, 2009. Sonsona staggered Laurente before unleashing a wicked left that sent Laurente crashing to the canvas where he lay for some time before being escorted by doctors and handlers to his corner.

Sonsona who is being trained by Restituto “Buboy” Fernandez, the assistant trainer of Pacquiao at the Wild Card Gym has looked good and his manager Rommel Nazario has high hopes for the flashy southpaw who has developed his punching power as indicated in his last two fights.

Pacquiao-Clottey Fight Prediction by Freddie Roach

It may be wishful thinking, but the earlier Manny Pacquiao stops challenger Joshua Clottey in their March 13 welterweight title fight, the better.

"If he gets him in one, I’m much happier, believe me," Roach told a couple of Manila-based sportswriters shortly after seeing the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) champion go through eight rounds of sparring Thursday (Friday in Manila) at the Wild Card gym in Hollywood.

"But Clottey has never been knocked out before, and I don’t think that’s going to happen. But you never know."

Clottey, 32, and from Accra, Ghana, but now based in Bronx, New York, has never been knocked out in his 39 pro fights, with all three of his losses coming either by unanimous decision or disqualification.

On Wednesday during Pacquiao’s open public workout, Roach, who turns 50 on Friday, March 5, boldly declared that the challenger won’t last the distance; even singling out that Clottey will break down come the ninth round.

Roach said he did mention round nine as the possible time when Clottey will go down since "they (reporters) forced me to pick a number."

"And I pick No. 9 all the time because that’s my favorite number," the four-time Trainer of the Year stressed.

And neither will he coerce Pacquiao to go for a knockout on the ninth round just because he predicted so.

"No, no, no," he repeatedly said. "I would never do that."

"But it won’t go 12 rounds, that’s my prediction."

Roach pointed out Clottey, the former International Boxing Federation (IBF) welterweight champion, hasn’t fought a fighting machine like Pacquiao in his entire career.

And like the great Oscar De La Hoya, the great disciple of the great late trainer Eddie Futch believes Clottey will be forced to quit the 12-round fight.

"The thing is, he’ll be going to be overwhelmed by the punches, and he’ll get it from so many angles. He’s never fought a guy who swarms over him like Manny Pacquiao," said Roach.

"He’s not used to that. Like Oscar (De La Hoya), we’ll let him quit it, I feel."

Roach felt more confident of a Pacquiao victory after the world’s top pound-for-pound king sparred for five rounds with Abdullay Amidu and old timer David Rodela.

The popular Filipino southpaw even had to take it easy on his long-time sparring partner the moment he bloodied the nose of Rodela with a bruising straight left.

"He looked really good, really sharp today. I’m very happy where he’s at, the game plan is in place and he knows what to do," said Roach later.

Knowing that Clottey has a very dangerous uppercut, Roach has that thing taken cared of during training camp, now on its seventh week.

"He (Clottey) is very fine with it. So I want Manny to keep his distance, that’s what we’re working out in sparring. He did a beautiful job of keeping the distance today in sparring. He knows what I want," Roach said, pointing out they’ll fight more like the way they did when Pacquiao fought Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez when the champion "slides out, slides to the side and uses the counterpunch."

Six more rounds are scheduled on Saturday and four on Monday, after which, it’s off to Dallas in the final week leading up to the fight.
