Pacquiao indulges in lechon during ‘Temptation Night’
Video by Roy Luarca / Philippine Daily Inquirer
CAN Manny Pacquiao, who is in deep training for his mega fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., eat artery-clogging, heart-stopping lechon kambing or whole roasted goat.
Yes he can. Why? Because he’s Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and he can do whatever he wants.
Whenever Manny Pacquiao trains for a fight, he makes up his own version of The Biggest Loser wherein the members of his massive posse compete to lose the most pounds.
Whoever loses the most is the winner and gets a healthy amount of cash.
Oh, by the way, like a sniveling heel, Pacquiao endangers the contestants’ diet with a Temptation Night where he serves food that people will eat at fiestas.
Inquirer’s Roy Luarca, who is in Los Angeles chronicling Pacquiao’s training camp, sent a video where the eight-division World Champion eats handfuls of lechon kambing.
For the unaware, lechon, though usually reserved for pork, can be used to describe any whole livestock cooked atop coals and is one of the greatest inventions since the wheel was made.
Pacquiao may be in deep training for his May 2 mega fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena but he’s still human.
Eat away Manny, eat away. AC
