PACQUIAO READY TO RUMBLE

By Eddie Alinea

31 Oct 2016



LOS ANGELES, CA – Challenger Manny Pacquiao winds up the Los Angeles leg of his build up program Monday (Tuesday in Manila), the same day his team motors to Las Vegas in Nevada, for his fight title with defending World Boxing Organization welterweight kingpin Jessie Vargas six days from now.

A training schedule described by chief handler Freddie Roach as ‘very light’ consisting of a few miles of roadwork and three rounds of sparring is what his training only needs starting on that day before his title showdown with the Mexican-American belt-owner on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) at the Thomas & Mack Center inside the University of Nevada-Las Vegas campus.

Despite the moderate schedule, the eight-division titleholder still wishes to run the mountainous Griffith Park in his early morning regimen before proceeding to the Roach-owned Wild Card sweatshop at the heart of world’s entertainment capital in Hollywood where he is to spar for three rounds and here, the gym phase of the program will terminate.

“No gym activity will be held starting Tuesday, except, perhaps some light exercises, which Manny can do before running outdoor anyway,” Roach told this writer after workout Saturday. “We in the training team believe we’ve covered everything the past six weeks Manny’s working out.”

“No need for him to extend the hard work and sacrifices he’s undergone with only a week remaining before the fight,” the Hall of Fame trainer reasoned out. “At this stage of preparation, we have to avoid things that can lead to injuries and other form of sickness to Manny.”

“His being a senator exposed him to meeting many people, especially when we were in Manila where he was contaminated with cold and cough, that forced him to cut short his daily training schedule or completely cancel the schedule,” Roach recalled.

“Even here in the U. S., people continue stalking him, following him wherever he goes unmindful of the possibility of Manny getting sick that might result in the postponement of the fight,” he added.

Pacquiao had actually completed the most crucial stage of his build up program last Saturday after completing 90 rounds of sparring, 200 rounds with the mitts and 3,000 miles of roadwork, leading Roach and his training team to declare him 100 per cent ready to do battle against Vargas for the latter’s WBO 14-pound belt.

“Ours preparation for the fight is one of the best held in 15 years,” Roach said. “And that’s the reason why Manny reached his peak this early.

“Yeah, we’re ready to rumble,” strength and conditioning guru Justin Fortune concurred in even as he threw cushion to the opposite camp to be prepared in facing a new Manny Pacquiao.

“We’ve just reinstated Manny to his old fighting form in the camp,” Fortune said in reference and assistant trainers Buboy Fernandez, Nonoy Neri, Roger “Haplas” Fernandez, Marvin Somodio and himself in the last of training program.

Assistant trainers Buboy Fernandez, Nonoy Neri, Roger “Haplas” Fernandez and Marvin Somodio all chorused their agreement.
