Pacquiao kabisado na ni Diaz

MANILA, Philippines – Dalawa sa tatlong laban ni dating world welterweight king Timothy Bradley, Jr. kontra kay Manny Pacquiao ay nasa corner ng American fighter si trainer Joel Diaz.

Kaya naman alam na alam na ni Diaz ang lakas at kahinaan ng Filipino world eight-division champion.

“We’re focusing on a lot of technical stuff that I worked with (Timothy) Bradley when we fought Pacquiao two times,” wika ni Diaz, ang chief trainer ni world welterweight titlist Lucas Matthysse.

Hahamunin ni Pacquiao (59-7-2, 39 KOs) si Matthysse (39-4-0, 36 KOs) para sa suot na World Boxing Association welterweight crown ng Argentinian sa Hulyo 15 sa Axiata Arena sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Kumpiyansa si Diaz sa tsansa ng 35-anyos na si Matthysse laban sa 39-anyos na si Pacquiao.

“I think if Lucas follows the plan the way we are working on and catches Pacquiao in an exchange, we will hurt him,” ani Diaz. “The plan is this – going to the Philippines and going the distance with Manny we’re not going to win. So we’re going for all the marbles. We have to go for the knockout.”

Ito ang unang pagsalang ni Pacquiao sa boxing ring matapos matalo kay Jeff Horn via unanimous decision at mahubaran ng suot na World Boxing Organization welterweight belt noong Hulyo ng 2017 sa Brisbane, Australia.

Ang nasabing korona ay inagaw naman ni Te-rence Crawford kay Horn via ninth-round TKO victory noong Linggo.

Sakaling matalo kay Matthysse, posibleng magretiro na si Pacquiao at tutukan ang kanyang trabaho sa Senado.

“I’ve seen Manny Pacquiao ten years ago, five years ago and two months ago. He’s made some changes but he’s not the young Manny Pacquiao that had the power. ani Diaz.
