MANILA, Philippines – Ricky Hatton will suffer the same fate Oscar De La Hoya did five months ago.
“It’s gonna be the same Manny Pacquiao that fought De La Hoya, in and out, in and out, bam, bam, bam, and out," said cutman Miguel Diaz, who will again serve as the third man on the Filipino’s corner when he fights Ricky Hatton over the weekend here.
The 30-year old southpaw beat De La Hoya black and blue on his way to scoring a stunning eight-round technical knockout in their so-called “Dream Match" last December.
The loss forced boxing’s “Golden Boy" to finally quit the sport for good.
While Diaz sees another sensational win for the pound-for-pound king, it may not come as easy against a banger like Hatton.
“It’s going to be a little more difficult because for some reason, Dela Hoya was really not in good shape during that fight," said the veteran cutman.
Like trainer Freddie Roach, Diaz pointed out to speed as the major key to beating the 30-year old Hatton.
“Even if it’s a different fight, I see a Manny Pacquiao moving in and out," he said, “You only have to see the legs, you see the calves and that kind of tells you the movement he’s gonna have and that would be the key of the fight." – GMANews.TV
