Soto vs. Diaz Added to the Pacquiao-Clottey Undercard

Soto to move up in weight while Diaz looks to regain his old strap.

Another bout has been added to the Pacquiao-Clottey undercard in the form of Humberto Soto vs. David Diaz. Soto (50-7-2, 32 KOs) will be making the move up to lightweight as he and David Diaz (35-2-1, 17 KOs) will go head to head for the vacant WBC lightweight title - the very same one that Edwin Valero just defended, though with the champ now on the shelf for the time being, his title is up for grabs.

Diaz is coming off a decision win over Jesus Chavez and previously held that WBC title until it was brutally lifted from him by Manny Pacquiao in 2008.

Soto on the other hand has a six-fight win streak going having just beaten the apparent whipping boy for future title challengers in Jesus Chavez this past December.
