PACQUIAO SAY HE'S READY TO PENETRATE MAYWEATHER'S DEFENSIVE SHELL


PhilBoxing.com




LOS ANGELES, Cal. ? One week into the Wild Card camp here, Filipino WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao pronounced himself ready.

Ready to meet the much-vaunted defense or defenses of rival Floyd Maywearther Jr., whom he meets in a unification 12-round, 147-pound showdown on May 2 in Las Vegas.

?Yeah, if it?s defense he will be relying on when we face each other, I can say this early that I?m ready to meet him in that department,? the fighting Sarangani Congressman told this writer following another rugged, tough training session Friday at the Wild Card Gym.

?We?ve actually been figuring out how we can penetrate the defensive blanket Floyd would throw at me since we opened camp in General Santos two or three weeks ago and I think we already have an idea of what offensive maneuvers we would utilize,? Pacquiao said in Tagalog.

?We?ve seen in the tapes of several of his previous fights the best things he is capable of doing kaya masasabi ko this early na malaki ang pag-asa na ma-break namin ang depensa nya,? the 36-year-old ?Fighter of the Century? honoree, assured.

?As I have been saying since we opened camp, we will be concentrating on finding the flaws in his defense and I think, too, we?ve discovered a lot,? he added.

?Two bladed actually and ginagawa namin nina Buboy and Haplas (assistant trainers and brothers Buboy and Roger ?Haplas? Fernandez,? Pacquiao disclosed.

?By planning on how to break his defense, we, at the same time, have learned how attack him and score,? the three-rime ?Boxer of the Year? awardee said.

?Double purpose, di ba?? he said with a wide grin. ?Tingin ko nga mas madali ang preparasyon against Floyd compared to my previous fights.?

All those they discovered so far in the course of their studies will further be scrutinized and finalized upon the arrival of chief trainer and Wild Card owner Freddie Roach.

Roach is still in Macau supervising the first title fight of his Chinese prot?g? Zou Shiming Saturday (Friday here in the U.S.)
Pacquiao said the legendary Hall of Fame boxing guru will be arriving here Sunday.

Pacquiao, the two Fernandez brothers and several members of his team flew in here via separate flights Saturday last week and immediately pitched the L.A. camp the following Monday.

Pacquiao has been burning the road every morning, while training closed door alternately at the Wild Card sweat shop in Hollywood and the Fortune Gym, owned by conditioning coach Justin Fortune.
