“Hittable? We’ll see…” - Pacquiao


PhilBoxing.com




“Let’s see if he can hit me. If he does, then he better make sure I won’t be able to stand up.”

This was what Filipino world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao said by way of reacting to challenger Shane Mosley’s statement that he is hittable.

“Sure, I am hittable, but his problem would be tatama ba siya? “ Pacquiao said in reference to statements attributed to Mosley that His (Pacquiao’s) biggest asset could also be his biggest liability.

“May inihahanda na kaming game plan ni Freddie (trainer Freddie Roach) at ito ang pinagtutuunan namin ng pansin ngayon at sa mga susunod pang linggo bago dumating ang laban,” Pacquiao told Malaya Business Insight in an overseas telephone interview shortly after his training session Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) at the Wild Card gym in Los Angeles.

“Of course ibang taktika naman ang gagamitin namin ngayon. Malaki ang kaibhan kaysa ginamit naming nung mga nakaraan laban ko. I have been fighting different fighters with different styles the past 10 years and I never used the same style in each of those fights, “ Pacquiao stressed.

“We will just surprise him in the same manner na sinorpresa din namin si (Oscar) DeLa Hoya, si (Miguel) Cotto). (Jopshua) Clottey, (Antonio) Margarito at iba pang nauna sa kanila,” he recalled.

“Alam ni Freddie kung saan malakas si Mosley at kung saan siya mahina in both offense and defense at doon kami magko-concentrate sa nalalabi pang mga araw ng aming paghahanda,” Pacquiao noted.


Mosley, during his media day Tuesday in his Big Bear, California camp said that Pacquiao’s fighting spirit is tailored made for the preparations he has been undertaking.

He observed that Pacquiao is more vulnerable than some might believe. He said that was evident in Pacquiao’s one-sided decision over Antonio Margarito, who was able to hit – and hurt – the Filipino.

“Pacquiao’s nature is to fight. Pacquiao isn’t a boxer like (Floyd) Mayweather, who slides away from you. He can do it … but it’s not what’s in here (pointing to the heart of a media men). Like me … I can box, I can move. I did all that in my amateur career. I’m not in there to do that, though. I want to knock you out. That’s what people pay do see.”

Asked if his age (39) would not be a disadvantage as assessed by several sportswriters, Mosley retorted: “If they think, ‘Oh, he’s 39, that's going to be his problem,’” he said, “they’re going to have a problem on May 7.”

Meanwhile, Pacquiao, the pound-for-pound king and Congressman from the Province of Sarangani , will finally give media the chance to see him workout, meet him and have interview with him April 20, his media day.

Roach, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum and members of Team Pacquiao will all be at the Wild Card Gym that day.

Roach and Arum will be available for one-on-one interviews before Pacquiao’s media workout beginning at 3 p.m. (LA. Time). Pacquiao will do interviews before his workout.

As to his tag a 10-1 underdog Mosley had this to say: “Do people have blinders on?“ I believe that’s going to be the difference between me and Pacquiao.I have all the (physical) advantages. I’m the bigger man, I’m the fastest guy he’s fought, I have a longer reach. Everything is working in my favor.
