THE OLD PACQUIAO IS BACK; DONAIRE IS AMAZING


PhilBoxing.com




Eight division world champion, Philippine senator and ?Fighter of the Decade? Manny Pacquiao is back to his old devastating punching machine while WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito ?The Filipino Flash? Donaire is looking amazing.

ABS-CBN reporter Dyan Castillejo told the Manila Standard that Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach revealed ?his left shoulder was hurting tremendously while Buboy Fernandez also complained that his elbow was hurting because of Manny?s punching power? in seven rounds on the punch-mitts.

Roach complemented Manny on his footwork during six rounds of sparring with Rey Beltran on Friday, Manila Time, and said ?Manny is exactly where we wanted him to be.

He said Pacquiao has shown ?amazing energy after nine to ten hours of work in the Senate and then the gym and added, that he?s ?really pleased, he was perfect.?

Pacquiao?s training team indicated ?they can feel the old Manny is back and if Jessie Vargas comes forward? because he is a fighter, the 5?10? champion will be in deep trouble.?

In an interview with The Main Event, Donaire laughed off unbeaten Jessie Magdaleno?s decision to dye his fair to boost his confidence.

Nonito, told us ?it was a way to take his mind off the fight...something that keeps his (Magdaleno?s) mind off the fight. Something that keeps his focus away from the fight. He is scared of me. It's fear.?

Donaire said he is ?physically and mentally well into this fight? and that he and Cuban trainer Ismael Salas had shown him ?a better way to fight.. more precise, more accurate.?

Nonito who sparred six rounds for the last time with Jose Gonzalez, who is a cousin of pound-for-pound No. 1 Roman ?Chocolatito? Gonzalez who has ?a good style similar to unbeaten Jessie Magdaleno.?

He said he won?t have any problem going twelve rounds if he has to.

Nonito revealed that Magdaleno?s team was ?working on my left hook? but ?hadn?t seen what we got.?

Donaire who had earlier expressed his elation at being featured alongside the legendary Manny Pacquiao which he had been dreaming about for years said ?we plan to represent the Philippines to the fullest and raise our country?s flag in victory.?
