Boxing fans of Olongapo may once again watch the much awaited boxing event of the year between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and David Diaz.

For the first time, newly-crowned World Boxing Council (WNC) Super Featherweight Champion Manny Pacquiao will fight against WBC Lightweight Champion Mexican-American David Diaz.

The two will pit skills in a 12-round match where the winner will take home the World Lightweight title currently held by Diaz. The fight, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino at Las Vegas Nevada, USA on the 28th of June (29th in the Philippines) 2008, can be viewed by Olongapeños at the Olongapo City Convention Center (OCCC) today.

‘’Matatandaan na sa tuwing may laban si Pacman ay ipinapalabas ito sa mas malaking venue upang higit na mas maraming mapapanood na Olongapeño at bilang pagpapakita na rin ng suporta sa pambato ng bansa sa boksing,’’ said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.

Because Mayor Gordon would like the residents to be part of the boxing match, he assigned Dr. Donald Vigo to set-up giant screens for the showing of the match via HBO-Pay Per View courtesy of COLORVIEW Catv.

‘’Mga alas-8 ng umaga ay magsisimula nang masaksihan ang laban ng mga ‘undercards’ kaya dapat ay maagang dumating ang mga manunuod upang makakuha ng magandang pwesto ng upuan,’’ Dr. Vigo said.

The last victorious fight of Pacquiao against the Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez on June 16 at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA was also viewed at OCCC by Olongapeños led by Mayor Gordon and Olongapo First Lady and Zambales Vice Governor Anne Marie Gordon. PAO/don
