After Pacquiao’s high altitude warm up training in Baguio City, the pound-per-pound king has just arrived in Las Vegas for his intense training in boot camp at the Wild Card Gym. The 32 year old Pacquiao is looking forward to seal his victory once and for all and to prove to the world that the past previous fights where all credited to him.
Despite their world tour together with Pacquiao and Marquez, it seems that both rivals never cease to settle down. Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer vowed that once the Pacquiao vs Marquez fight is over he sees to it that Marquez pays for his disrespect. For the record, Marquez and Pacquiao had already fought twice way back in 2004 and 2008. Both fights where controversial and nonetheless left an impact to the boxing community. Pacquiao’s camp was slapped right of the back when Marquez wore a shirt stating “Marquez beat Pacquiao twice”. This was the smoking gun that ignited Roach that smite him to put Pacquiao on a full force training boot camp.
With only months left of training coach Freddie Roach has reunited with Manny Pacquiao in the cover of darkness inside a waiting van that led straight home to Baguiao. Team Pacquiao together with Joe Ramos assisted Roach to Baguio to help Pacquiao’s high-altitude training. Accompanying them was lightweight fighter Jorge Linares who is scheduled for a match this coming Oct. 15.
Team Pacquiao aired out its concern on Baguio’s traffic jams due to the repairing of a main road. This was considered a burden since Pacquiao runs on the private estate road of Sta. Lucia in the morning before heading off to the gym. Since then, Pacquiao considers Baguio City as its staging area, most especially when it comes to practicing and training for their match.
Together with his sparring partner, Linares predicted with Pacquiao’s tip top shape and impressive performance he sees the bout to end in four or five rounds. Even Pacquiao’s childhood friend “Buboy” Fernandez told Roach that when he sees Manny working out alone, would definitely surprise Roach as this was the first training camp that Pacquiao improve so much is little time. To spice up training in Baguio, Pacquiao has included basketball in one of his high-altitude dogma. Coach Freddie Roach allowed Pacquiao to play basketball games as this would increase his speed and stamina.
Coach Nacho Beristain, Marquez’s trainer told press reporters about Pacquiao’s busy and tight schedule. Manny Pacquiao who is both a congressional representative and singer will likely spell his own downfall on fighting with a physically fit Marquez. Beristrain, said that Pacquiao lacks the focus to continue on with his training and he lacks the discipline in doing so. Beristrain is a well-noted trainer for being able to shape up 20 Mexican world champions and making them famous all under his watch. He continued to state that Pacquiao’s juggling acts with many hats has made him unable to focus and train for a well fit and phyisically trained Marquez during their fight.
It looks like the champion Manny Pacquiao garnered respect from fans worldwide but come to think of it even Ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner aka “Girl Next Door”, Brodget Marquardt was spotted near team Pacquiao. Marquard told reporters that while she served as host of Max Jacques Entertainment, she was wooed by Pacquiao’s story. The blond beauty is the newly convert to Pacquiao’s punch and will be cheering during their fight faceoff with Marquez.
Munching on his favorite steamed lobster, Pacquiao told reporters that he couldn’t stop his hands on getting a piece of Marquez. It seems that the fighter does not only wants steamed lobster for dinner but a fired Marquez would be a nicer treat. Both fighters have fought it before that both ended up in a controversial draw with many other people spark rumors.
MANILA, Philippines – Juan Manuel Marquez’ trainer, Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain, believes that lack of focus on boxing will soon catch up with Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao.
“Everything I do now is point to Juan Ma, and to beating Manny Pacquiao on November 12,” Beristain told Examiner.com.
“The world may be shocked, but Pacquiao will be defeated,” the Mexican trainer added.
Beristain pointed to Pacquiao’s numerous activities outside of the boxing ring, which includes a music and political career.
“He has a lack of focus, and Juan Ma will take advantage of this. Being a fighter, a congressman, a singer, all of this will finally catch up to Manny,” Beristain said.
Pacquiao and Marquez seem to be enjoying together as they travel to Mexico to promote their fight. While Pacquiao might be enjoying their tour together with Marquez as they cruise along their second leg of their city tour, Manny Pacquiao revealed to reporters his desire to beat the crap of Juan Manuel Marquez as they clash on November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Pacquiao told Philippine media that he’ll make Marquez eat his words stating that Marquez is just overreacting to his past previous fights that he as won both of them. Although Pacquiao is happy on how Marquez is preparing for their WBO welterweight duel, he is confident enough that Marquez will be 100 percent condition during fight night.
