Same Pacquiao training routine against Bradley


MANILA, Pacquiao—Manny Pacquiao will stick to his tested routine of eight weeks of training for his showdown with Timothy Bradley on June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“Let’s get it (training) going,” Pacquiao told sportswriters during the PSA Awards night Saturday at the Manila Hotel.

Pacquiao, who’ll be staking his WBO welterweight crown, said he’ll start jogging midway this month to get in shape before holding training camp in Baguio City either in late March or the first week of April.

The fighter of the decade will spend three weeks in Baguio under the guidance of Hall of Famer trainer Freddie Roach.

Team Pacquiao will then proceed to Roach’s Wild Card gym in Hollywood for the final phase of training.

According to Pacquiao, he needs to start early as he’s been out of the ring since last November when he won by majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in their third battle.

Though installed as a 3-1 favorite, Pacquiao doesn’t want to be lulled into complacency again.

Pacquiao recently admitted that he underestimated Marquez the last time out and neglected his plyometrics training, which resulted in what many felt was an unimpressive showing.

Their first fight ended in a controversial draw while the second went to Pacquiao by split decision.

The unbeaten Bradley, the WBO light welterweight titlist, promised to stun the boxing world with a win over the eight-division world champion.

    Bradley has no chance to beat Pacquiao so save your money on this one. Just think about how that would kill any possible fight with Mayweather next year. No way Arum lets that happen. This fight is just to keep Manny fresh, but Bradley will not even get close to beating Manny.
