Manny Pacquiao impresses in training
April 27th, 2011 by Ben Vine
Manny Pacquiao has never prepared for a fight better in the run up to facing Shane Mosley on May 7th, according to trainer Freddie Roach.
Roach has been a little critical of his fighter’s focus in recent training sessions as the Filipino has won a seat in his national congress. But it seems as though Pacquiao has put the Las Vegas showdown at the top of his priorities.
“This is the best start we’ve ever had to a training camp,” Roach told reporters at his Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California. “His focus has been great the whole way through.
“It’s probably one of the least distracted we’ve ever been in training camp and he’s doing great. He’s concentrating on the fight, he’s not taking this guy lightly at all and he’s right where I want him to be.”
Boxing tickets are available now.
