The most Manny Pacquiao can assure his fans is he’ll go for it when he tangles with defending champion David Diaz for the World Boxing Council lightweight crown on June 28 in Las Vegas. br /All boxers want to win by knockout, and both of us will try to do that. But it’s hard to tell what will happen,” Pacquiao told Manila-based sportswriters in Filipino at his unit at the gated Palazzo apartments here.br /br /object width="425" height="344"param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WU3GeFEWQ34hl=en"/paramembed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WU3GeFEWQ34hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"/embed/objectbr /br /I will try to win by KO to give the fans their money’s worth.”br /Pacquiao promised plenty of action, though, in the bout dubbed “Lethal Combination” at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.br /His hair newly cut and his moustache trimmed, Pacquiao said he’s not worried in his first outing in the 135-pound division.br /“I have big sparmates and I’m heavier than that (135) when I fight,” he said.br /After weighing in at 129 lb, Pacquiao ballooned to 145 when he wrested the WBC super featherweight crown from Juan Manuel Marquez on March 15.br /Though he’s not thinking of losing, Pacquiao said he won’t make any excuses in the event of such an upset.br /Oddsmakers have installed the Filipino superstar a 4-1 favorite to beat Diaz and become the only Asian to win four world titles in different divisions.br /The 29-year-old Pacquiao also held the WBC flyweight title in 1998 and the International Boxing Federation super bantam belt in 2001.br /Pacquiao also dismissed the notion that Diaz will be an easy conquest based on the way he beat Ramon Montano, a sparmate of Pacquiao, by decision in the undercard of Pacquiao-Marquez II.br /“I’m sure he’ll be in better shape this time,” said Pacquiao. “He just didn’t take Montano seriously. But I’ll be ready for him. Fighting is my business and I want to be in the best shape each time I fight.”br /With his weight in check at 139 and feeling fine, Pacquiao-given the go-signal by chief trainer Freddie Roach to take a break-opted to jog around the La Brea park before hearing mass at the Christ the King church.br /After eating lunch, Pacquiao rested for three hours and then whiled the time away playing a friendly card game and darts.br /Feeling hungry at around 6 p.m., he finished a sandwich before hobnobbing with visitors.br /It will be a busy Monday for Pacquiao. After winding up his training at the Wild Card Gym with four rounds of sparring, he proceeds to Santa Monica pier for a joint press luncheon conference with Diaz.br /From there, Team Pacquiao will take the four-hour drive to Las Vegas, arriving just before sunset in the city of lights.div class="blogger-post-footer"img width='1' height='1' src='http://res1.blogblog.com/tracker/26210445-4739345410152848790?l=manny-pacquio.blogspot.com'//div
