MANILA, Philippines–Manny Pacquiao skipped training on Tuesday to rest after a long day in Senate, as per his longtime friend and trainer Buboy Fernandez.

Pacquiao, the reigning WBA welterweight titleholder, was supposed to have another sparring session with fast-rising star George Kambosos Jr. at Elorde Boxing Gym at Mall of Asia in Pasay City after his Senate work in the afternoon.
