Even as heavy favorite, Pacman still trains as hard

Probably part of hyping the upcoming fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley, Pacquiao’s camp is telling everyone that they are not taking “Sugar” Shane Mosley lightly. He has been a 3-division world champion and you can expect new things coming out from his arsenal.

Everyone at Pacquiao’s camp is saying that Sugar is still "sweet" and if he can hit Pacquiao’s button in the early rounds with a solid blow, it will be a kiss on the canvass for Pacquiao. Shane can punch both right and left with more power compared to Pacquiao’s previous opponent, Antonio Margarito. Shane won against Margarito in January 2009 in a murderous 9th round KO compared it Pacquiao who finished the whole 12 rounds and winning only in scores.

Pacquiao is now in Hollywood, California training at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym. He is preparing heavily because he does not want to get kayoed but an old boxer. No one knows how Mosley is training right now. They are very discreet even to the Showtimes crew members who produce the Fight Camp 360 reality series.

Pacman trains everyday and does not attend to calls if it’s not important. During the early days of their training in Hollywood, they are closing their doors to the public because they don’t want any distractions on Pacman and hinder him from becoming 100% coming into the fight.

Manny, a congressman in the Philippines, has a lot in mind now. He needs to attend to his people in Sarangani (a province in the Philippines) and he needs to prepare hard for his upcoming fight with the Pomona native. He is ready to spar 12 rounds with his “Mosley clones” so they can get the job right in the early rounds. Round by round they are discussing right and wrong to Pacquiao's attacks so Manny will be the first boxer to KO Mosley.

Mosley has had a wonderful career until Vernon Forrest and Winky Wright both stopped him twice. But Shane Mosley achieved a feat of being the only boxer who won against a young Oscar dela Hoya twice and he won his first 39 fights as a Professional Boxer, mostly by KO.

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight will be on May 7 at the MGM Grand Arena in Sin City. Tickets are still available on this link. Book now to avoid rush buying.
