Billy ‘The Kid’ Dib returns Halloween night in Australia

Former International Boxing Federation (IBF) featherweight champion Billy “The Kid” Dib (37-3, 21 KOs) will not be trick-or-treating tomorrow night (Friday) at home in Australia. Instead, he’ll be dressed in trunks and wearing boxing gloves for his 12-round fight with his upset-minded Indonesian opponent Ruben Manakane (14-11-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant PABA super featherweight title.

Dib, whose only three losses as a professional have been in world title fights to undefeated Evgeny Gradovich twice and Steve Luevano, based on his tremendous experience and talent advantage, will likely throw a horrific scare, if not worse, into his young opponent.

What we learned this week in Boxing (Nov. 18 – 24)

This past week, the boxing world was pretty much fixated on the return of Manny Pacquiao as he faced Brandon Rios in Macau, China. It’s certainly understandable because hell, the last time we saw “PacMan” in the ring, he was face first on the mat after being knocked out of his senses by Juan Manuel Marquez back on December 2012. The question coming into his return, to the ring, was how is Pacquiao physically and more importantly, mentally? Would he be the same old Manny, or would the KO loss to Marquez have a permanent affect on him.
