Pacquiao's training sked altered by typhoon


PhilBoxing.com




BAGUIO CITY -- Rains brought about by Typhoon “Pedring” that hit the whole of Luzon, including the country’s summer capital, cancelled Manny Pacquiao’s second workout day on the track aimed at building the stamina he needs in his third fight against Juan Manuel Marquez a little less than a month from today.

“It’s raining cats and dogs outside, so it’s impossible to go on with what we started yesterday,” strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza said, adding though that the cancellation would not, in any way affect the three-week high-altitude training the World Boxing Organization welterweight champion here.

“It’s still very early so we still have plenty of time to catch up,” Ariza, who has been handling the pound-for-pound king’s conditioning concerns since Pacquiao’s fight with Miguel Cotto, assured this writer.

Ariza couldn’t help expressed amazement though with the way Pacquiao, who is staking his 147-pound belt in the Las Vegas fight that will complete their trilogy, carried himself in the opening day of track session at the Philippine Sports Commission oval inside the Teachers Camp.

“I’m really amazed how he’s been performing on the road and on the track. I think he’s fast catching up for the lost time due to his four-month inactivity since winning over (Shane) Mosley last May.

“I can see no problem making him in shape comes fight night. We still have some two weeks here in Baguio and five more weeks in the U.S., I can’t see any problem, really, he said.

In the absence of roadwork, chief trainer Freddie Roach added one more round to Pacquiao’s scheduled sparring from what was planned four-rounder to five at the Cooyeesan Hotel’s Shape Up Boxing Gym along Naguillian Road.

For the first time in three sessions with lightweight contender Jorge Linares, the eight-division champ showed sharpness and power with punishing body and head shots in the three rounds.

He also sparred for two rounds with promising featherweight and former North Cotabato Gov. Manny Pinol ‘s protégé Lorenzo Villanueva. He also impressed Roach working the heavy bag and the double end ball that the four-time “Trainer of the Year” maestro was all smiles after the day’s four-hour session. Today and Friday are days for working with the mitts and, weather permitting, roadwork, possibly in the hilly Sta. Lucia Subdivision circuit, a stone’s throw away from the Cooyeesan Hotel, his official home while in the Pines City.
