Before the lightweight showdown, HBO will replay the super featherweight tilt between Manny Pacquiao and Marco Antonio Barrera. That fight originally took place on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas and featured two of the sport’s most decorated performers. Pacquiao scored a unanimous decision victory.
In a 12-round unification title showdown of the two best 135-pounders, Juan Diaz (32-0, 16 KOs) of Houston meets Julio Diaz (34-3, 25 KOs) of Coachella, Cal. Juan Diaz, 23, defeated Acelino Freitas last spring on HBO, proving he is a force to be reckoned with. Julio Diaz, 27, is a seasoned pro who looks to use his considerable experience and knockout power to his advantage.
