New look Pacquiao can send Broner dreamland

By Eddie Alinea

Since knocking out Miguel Cotto in 12 rounds to crown himself the World Boxing Organization welterweight champion for the first time in 2009, Filipino future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao has scored a stoppage victory only once and it took him almost nine years to do so.

This only came more than six months last July when, at age 39 and branded as past his prime, he TKOed then World Boxing Association 147-pound titlist Lucas Matthysse in the seventh round to recapture for the third time the division belt.

On January 19, the now 40 years old Philippine Senator is putting his crown on the block against American challenger Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, site of many of his world championship conquests that made him the only man on earth in the history of sweet science to win titles in eight divisions.

Never in his 24-year professional career has the soft-spoken Pacquiao predicted the outcome of his fights, but this time, he expressed his desire to win and keep his plum by knocking out the former for-division title holder pretender.

Not even when he stopped one after the other such top-notch campaigners Chatchai Sasakul, Lehlo Ledwaba, Marco Anonio Barrera, David Diaz and Ricky Hatton and gifted himself the world flyweight, supder-bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight and junior-welterweight jewels, among others, for that unequaled eight weight classes.

No, the three-time ’Fighter of the Year’ honoree of the Boxing Writers Buboy Fernandez and his team a KO triumph either, but the way his his build up program is carried out all points becoming the first man to send Broner to dreamland.

"I am not making a prediction (as usual), but my goal is to knock out Broner," Pacquiao said in his statement made early this week as quoted by media. "I am looking for a knockout against Broner. I have to maximize the opportunity. I forgot how much fun winning a fight by knockout was until I stopped Lucas Matthysse last summer to win the WBA welterweight title."

Pacquiao is not alone in his wish. Buboy, too, expressed the same in earlier talk to this writer at the start of training more than a month ago. And so did strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune, and assistant trainer Nonoy Neri and Roger “Haplas” Fernandez.

“Of course, we’ll be preparing Manny to win by KO,” Buboy declared then. “Ngayon pang naibalik na namin ang dating lakas, bilis at sharpness ni Manny. Ang KO, hindi pinipilit kunin yan. Dumarating ang pagkakataon at dapat samantalahin.“

“When opportunity comes any time sa laban, dapat kunin. Dyan namin inihanda si Manny,” Buboy revealed a day after Pacquiao came out with out with his wish to stop Broner. “Kapag nakitang may pagkakataong mapatulog ang kalaban, patulugin na. Baka pag nawala ang tsansa, hindi na bumalik.”

"Manny knows that na. He can feel it within him, Buboy said of his boyhood friend. “I am very pleased with the training camp Manny has had. His footwork, distance and angles are all coming together nicely. "When he hits the mitts it sounds like an explosion. I have never felt such raw power.”

“When we end this camp in L.A. and move to Las Vegas, Manny will be in razor-sharp shape, I tell you. Both physically and mentally. Alam na nya ang gagawin nya kahit anong situwasyon ang dumating,” he assured.

Fortune agreed. “Manny’s stronger than ever. His hitting power hasn’t diminished a bit. And he’s quicker, too, in both his hands and feet."

“He runs like a deer," Fortune attested. "No one can keep up with him in flat surface and on the mountains. That's the secret to his success -- his work ethic and his stamina.”

“He has the strongest foundation of any fighter with whom I've worked,” the Australian-American cancer survivor mentor said. “His legs and calves still generate more power and speed than younger fighters."
