PACQUIAO SAYS FOCUS MAKE HIM LAST LONG IN BOXING


PhilBoxing.com




WBA welterweight and eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao was focused on his training and did not let his achievements get into his head. "It was the focus [that made me last this long in boxing], I have not thought about what I have achieved, many fighters become lazy because they think about the things they have achieved, that they are champions. But I do not think about what I've achieved in my career, I do not think about what I've done, I think about what's coming, in the next fight," Pacquiao explained to Eduard Cauichi.

* * *

"My motivation is my family, the support of the Filipinos, the support of boxing fans. I want to stay at the top of boxing until there is a Filipino who carries the our flag." He is not thinking about a rematch with Floyd Maywesther. "I'm not thinking about that, my focus is Adrien Broner. It's all about that. Maybe we can discuss [Mayweather] after this fight," Pacquiao said. "I'm not worried about [what Broner] brings, I just have to stay focused and be 100% conditioned."

* * *

Pacquiao also was not at all threatened by Mayweather's New Year's Eve first round demolition of Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. "The Mayweather fight, that was an exhibition. His opponent was a young kid with no experience," Pacquiao said.

* * *

Broner told Fight Hype on how he would handle his fight against Pacquiao. “It’s proven that you don’t have to throw a lot of punches to beat Manny Pacquiao. You might only have to throw one and that mother f**** can go to sleep."

* * *

“That ain’t a myth, the mother f***** has been asleep before. The most important part of fighting Manny Pacquiao is throwing the right punches at the right time.”

* * *

"Timing beats speed, and everybody knows I got great timing," Broner told FightHype. "Timing beats everything, and this is just a good time for Adrien Broner and Pacquiao to fight."

* * *

Pacquiao once said that the fight with Broner is for purely business not for personal reasons. “I have nothing personal against Adrien Broner. This fight is strictly business. He is fun. He makes me laugh. He knows how to sell himself and to sell a fight.”

* * *

Donnie Nietes said his most notable win over Japan's Kazuto Ioka in Macau last New Year's Eve for his fourth world title is not the most difficult fight in his career. "The first fight with (Mexican) Moises Fuentes (in March 2013) and that one against Komgrich Nantapetch (of Thailand in 2017),” Nietes told The Manila Bulletin, saying he struggled in his bout with Fuentes which was decided as a majority draw.

* * *

He had a hard time against Nantapetch, Nietes was troubled by the Thai's offensive as he kept on attacking and because of his vast experience he was able to beat his lionhearted opponent winning the vacant IBF flyweight title by unanimous decision.

* * *

Nietes faced Fuentes in a rematch over a year later and this time he did much better as he scored a very convincing 9th round TKO win over the Mexican to retain his WBO junior-flyweight title and win the vacant Ring junior flyweight title.

* * *

"It wasn’t as hard as the fights with Fuentes and Nantapetch because I knew I was in control and I landed the more telling blows,” said the 36-year-old Murcia, Negros Occidental native of his victory over Ioka. “If the decision didn’t go my way, I would have been broken-hearted by now,’ he added.

* * *

Nietes’ team are still thinking on his next move but he is scheduled to be back in the ring as early as March. His probable opponents include the winner of Aston Palicte versus Puerto Rican Jose Martinez, Thai WBC world superflyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada or Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzales.
