Los Angeles -- Barely two weeks to go for the big fight and yet everyone at Team Pacquiao swears that Manny is very much prepared and raring to go.
I have the opportunity to watch Manny as he sparred at the Wild Card Gym for 12 rounds Thursday and I am convinced that the same old speed, agility and footwork still exist and even more. His enduring stamina is phenomenal. At the rate he trains and focused in his workout, Shane Mosley wouldn't have a chance.
Manny drew his inspiration from lots of Filipinos based in the U.S and from those who came to visit him to give support though at times visitors were restricted to watch in order not to congest the gym. Worth mentioning are my wife Goody, parents-in- law Ditdit & Virgie Llido, Mario Villanueva, Leah Dela Cruz, Joy, Tonton, Abet, Shandee, Johna and many more.
To Congressman Manny, our pride, our hero, our man: Good Luck! God Bless! Mabuhay!
