PACQUIAO’S TRAINING GOING WELL


PhilBoxing.com




GENERAL SANTOS CITY (PNA) – After a week of stamina-rebuilding regimen, Manny Pacquiao pronounced himself ready to plunge into the most serious part of his build up program leading to his comeback fight against Brandon Rios this November in Macau.

“Slowly, but surely, I think we are succeeding in attaining our goal in our first week of serious training here,” Pacquiao said following Friday’s training session at the Pacman Wild Card Gym here. “By next week, siguro mare-recover na completely ang endurance para pagdating ni Freddie (Roach) mas seryosong ensayo na ang gagawin namin.”

“And I thank my training staff, headed by Buboy (Pacquiao’s boyhood friend and assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez), Nonoy (Neri) and Haplas (Buboy’s brother Roger) for being at the helm of training in the absence of Freddie. Malaki ang nagawa nila para sa initial stage ng training camp,” he quipped.

Rounds of from 18 to 25 punching the mitts, heavy bags, double end ball, speed ball, skipping rope, shadow boxing and limbering exercises, coupled with roadwork at the Acharon Sports Complex oval marked the first seven days of the camp.

So impressive, indeed was Pacquiao atop the ring that at one time while punching the mitts, Buboy was to be substituted by Neri due to exhaustion and inability to continue absorbing the power of the Sarangani Congressman’s punches.

After next week, business manager Michael Koncz projected that the eight-division champion will be ready for the sparring portion of the getting-ready regimen.

Roach will be arriving within the next two weeks bringing along at least a pair of sparring mates. Roach and his Filipino assistant Marvin Somodio will at Miguel Cotto’s corner when the Puerto Rican fights Devin Rodriguez October 5 in Orlando.

“The coming week, we will be focusing on speed and strength although we’ve already started on that in between regaining stamina,” Pacquiao, who will turn 35 on December 7, disclosed. “Marami pa actually ang dapat gawin para paghandaan ang laban, but I want to assure boxing fans, especially our kababayan that I will be ready when fight day comes.”

“Sinisiguro ko sa ting mga kababayan na magiging puspusan ang paghanda ko. Magiging focus ako at disiplinado sa buong panahon ng paghahanda, walang distraction,” he vowed.

“At siyempre hindi mawawala ang dalangin sa ating Panginoon na gabayan tayo mula sa ensayo hanggang sa laban. Na sana ay walang mangyaring masama sa akin habang nag-e-ensayo at lalo na sa pagdating ng araw nang laban,” he said.

“Ganoon din naman, dalangin ko rin na pangalagaan niya ang aking makakalaban, si Brandon Rios na iligtas sa anumang injury ujpang sa ganoon ay maging maganda ang aming laban sa kasiyahan ng aming mga tagahanga at lahat ng tagasunod ng boksing sa buong mundo,” Pacquiao added.
