PACQUIAO LOOKS AMAZING IN WORKOUT, MARQUEZ STRONG BUT SLOW


PhilBoxing.com




“Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao worked out with celebrated trainer Freddie Roach at the Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas on Tuesday and looked amazing.

In stark contrast Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez looked strong but slow as he and Pacquiao both went through their routine on the University of Nevada in Las Vegas on opposite sides of the track.

ABS-CBN’s Dyan Castillejo who has for years chronicled the exploits of Pacquiao told the Manila Standard that when Pacquiao was working out on the track Marquez showed up and although they didn’t meet, there was a buzz among onlookers.

She said while Manny showed incredible hand-speed working the punch-mitts with Roach and threw flurries of punches while moving, Marquez looked “very strong and solidly built but so much slower than Pacquiao.”

She did however note that Marquez did a lot of speed drills and rigorous plyometric exercises.

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza said Pacquiao "has always looked great in training camp but what matters is what happens on Saturday."

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum was overjoyed at the excitement generated by the fourth episode of a historic saga between Pacquiao and Marquez which has resulted in him running out of tickets.

Meantime, the sideline rhetoric between Roach and Marquez and his strength and conditioning coach Angel Heredia went up a notch as Marquez brushed off allegations by Roach that his bulked-up, muscular frame was allegedly the result of taking performance enhancing drugs which Pacquiao himself had to contend with from the camp of Floyd Mayweather Jr in the past.

Marquez told Rick Reeno of Boxing Scene that he is willing to take any test and added “lets do it together.”

However, Heredia said the allegations were “unfair.” Heredia told Reeno he met with his lawyers and indicated he may take legal action against Roach.

Pacquiao’s own strength and conditioning guru Alex Ariza came to the defense of Heredia. He told us as well as the Los Angeles Sports Boxing Channel’s Marcos Villegas that Heredia “knows about speed, he knows how to put on muscle that’s functional and so for me knowing what he’s doing, he’s doing it right.”

Both Pacquiao and Marquez made their grand arrivals at the MGM lobby some thirty minutes apart with a huge throng of supporters welcoming Pacquiao while scores of Mexicans showed up to welcome Marquez.
