PACQUIAO ENJOYS GOING BACK TO TRAINING


PhilBoxing.com




GENERAL SANTOS CITY (PNA) – Filipino boxing hero Manny Pacquiao is moving on from what appeared to be a career-ending knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez nearly a year ago and looks ready to recapture his place in the elite list of sweet science’s biggest stars.

“Oo naman,” Pacquiao himself assured Monday in an interview with this writer after undergoing a tough, grueling three-hour workout at his newly-built Wild Card Gym located at the heart of this bursting city where his team pitched his training camp for his fight with Brandon Rios next month.

“It’s the same feeling as before, nakita mo naman ang ensayo ko today. Inspired na inspired ako at very excited na bumalik muli sa ring, “Pacquiao, who will turn 35 this coming December said, in reference to his 25-round training session that included 13 rounds of doing the mitts with bosom friend and assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez.

The mitts portion of the regimen was originally scheduled for nine rounds but Pacquiao asked for more.

“Kilala mo na naman si Manny, ganyan talaga yan kapag ginanahan sa ensayo hindi mapipigilan,” Buboy who finished the session sweating profusely and looked more tired than Pacquiao, sighed.

Two rounds punching the double end ball, another three rounds on the speed ball plus five more rounds on the rope and on the mat rounded out the day’s work with other coaching staff members Nonoy Neri and Buboy’s brother Roger “Haplas.”

Monday’s training session was also highlighted by nine rounds of early morning roadwork at the Acharon Sports Complex oval.

“Yeah, he has moved on and soon will be on the way to becoming a one of the best again,” Pacquiao’s business manager Michael Koncz declared on the day Pacquiao actually opened what is scheduled a 10-week build up program leading to his come back fight with American Rios for the international welterweight championship this November in the Chinese gambling paradise Macau.

“Recovering is an understatement. There’s nothing to recover in the first place,” Koncz said. “To say that Manny had recovered from the enigma of his sixth round knockout to Marquez is wrong. To me, Manny fought his best fight in that fourth meeting with Marquez.“

“It was just that we committed a grave mistake and paid dearly for it,” he said. “But the fear that Manny suffered psychological and mental effect from the fall, is unfounded. He underwent and MRI in Las “Vegas right after the fight and was pronounced out of danger by doctors.”

“We also had him examined by the best specialists here in the country and all, likewise, declared him safe,” Koncz assured. “We’ve continuously been monitoring his condition and I can safely say that he’s okay and ready to fight again.”

Buboy shared Koncz view saying, “wala na yun. Past is past and Manny has been leading a normal life a few weeks after that defeat. Siyempre noong una malungkot, masakit dahil talo. But that is expected in a game of boxing. Nananalo at natatalo. It’s too bad dumating ang pagkakataong natalo.”

Pacquiao, Buboy, Haplas and Nonoy all said the long 10-week training camp that will include one week in Macau, is the ring icon’s longest since moving to flyweight from junior-fly in the beginning of his 18-year fighting career.
