The Manny Pacquiao-David Diaz Fight in Youtube Video

UPDATE (December 7, 2008) Youtube Video of Manny Pacquiao versus Golden Boy Oscar de la Hoya

I did not watch the Pacquaio-Diaz fight. I couldn’t bear to watch either one get hurt. In fact, I’ve never watched a single boxing match in full. I cringe every time a jab is aimed at either one of the boxers. For me a boxing fight is like watching a horror show. You know the kind where I cover my eyes fearing a bloody mess will unfold before me.

That didn’t deter me from being updated through the blow-by-blow accounts of the Plurkers. I caught Manny Pacquiao on TV news just a few minutes ago, trying to tug on Diaz as he lay sprawled on the floor. Being ignorant on boxing rules, was he trying to lift him so he could fight some more or was he concerned that Diaz fell to the ground? So I searched for the fight in youtube hoping someone got to record it.

I found this youtube video of Pacman-Diaz: ROUND 9 Pacquiao’s POWER UNLEASHED KO’s Diaz

I can only take portions of the fight and watching it in youtube didn’t look as intimidating as watching it on TV.

I know this is just a sport and I should be proud that our Philippine boxing icon Manny ““Pacman” Pacquiao made history, knocking out WBC lightweight champion David Diaz and to become the first Asian to hold four different titles at different weights and the first Filipino to hold the crown.

Congratulations Manny Pacquiao. One thing I noticed from you is that you praised God for your victory. You also made your mom so proud that she fainted. She must have been overwhelmed with joy. Any mother would be proud of their child’s accomplishment whether big or small.

    I was helping Yohan with his homework upstairs while hubby watched the boxing fight on cable downstairs. I just heard his triumphant cheer and I knew that Pacquiao had won.

    I enjoyed the fight not because I enjoyed them getting hurt. It’s the skills. I also noticed Pacman pray after the game. Truly faith can make us strong.

    I missed to watch it. I didn’t subscribe to pay per view here in Abu Dhabi. I catched the KO round via You Tube also. But in one of the Filipino restos here, recorded copies of the fight are selling like hotcakes. The Fil-Chinese resto owner is so madiskarte. http://witsandnuts.com/2008/06/29/diskarte/

    And today as fed via TV Patrol, copies of the fight in DVDs are already available in Quiapo after an hour of the televized match.
