PACMAN IN L.A. WORKOUT SATURDAY;
NHL COACH WILL WALK DIAZ TO RING;
'THE ROCK' PROMISES A KO WIN!

For Immediate Release


This is a huge weekend for Top Rank:

Boxing's most exciting champion, Manny Pacquiao, will be at an open workout at 'Little Philippines' Lake Street Park, 227 North Lake Street, Los Angeles, on Saturday at noontime. Manny will shake out, then do interviews about his upcoming battle with lightweight champ David Diaz.

On fight night NHL Chicago Blackhawks head coach Dennis Sevard will give final instructions to David Diaz in the locker room, then walk him to the ring to battle with Pacquiao on June 28 at Mandalay Bay. Sevard is in the NHL Hall of Fame and is a huge Diaz fan....

Pacquiao's chief trainer Freddie Roach: "Diaz says he's coming after Manny with power shots. Manny will fire right power shots right back at him."

Heavyweight Hasim Rahman, at a press conference yesterday in Los Angeles, said he will "knock out and destroy" James Toney in their 'Last Chance' battle at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Ca. on July 16. Rahman, training in Phoenix, said "...I will attack early, knock him out and then move on to a bigger fight. After this fight, Toney should retire and give it up."

Top Rank matchmaker Brad Goodman said the fight between Jesus Soto-Karass and David Estrada is an 'all-out war' on July 25 at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas on the eve of the mega fight between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Oxnard's Brandon Rios, who dug in and fought bravely and won his bout on Top Rank's Latin Fury 4 in Aquascaliente, Mexico, will open on the Telefutura telecast.

TOP RANK NOTEBOOK -- Before LA presser, Rahman told the TR staff "...I cannot wait to see Cotto against Margarito. Who do you think will win?".......Tickets off to a hot start at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas where Anthony Peterson and Vanes Martirosyan will be featured on the 'Fight Night on Versus' fight card on Thursday, June 26. Tickets are $50, $30, $15. Top Rank's young Diego Magdelano, a very skilled prospect, is on the undercard. The Orleans has plenty of hotel rooms for out of town fight fans too.....HBO Countdown crew still working and filming Antonio Margarito today at his hometown gym...
