No More Basketball for Manny Pacquiao

No more basketball. No more road trips. No more appointments.

For the next two weeks, it will all be boxing, boxing and boxing for Manny Pacquiao.

The Filipino superstar arrived in Los Angeles yesterday morning (Manila time) and starting today will train harder than ever, from early morning to mid-afternoon, in preparation for his Nov. 13 showdown with Antonio Margarito.

Before boarding the plane to LA, Pacquiao said he’s 90 percent ready for the fight but wished that he could work more on his speed.

He’ll have two weeks to do that at the Wild Card Gym which will be closed down from noon until 5 p.m. to enable Pacquiao to concentrate on his training. Only those with business of being there will be allowed in.

And by the time they head for Texas on Nov. 8, Monday of fight week, Pacquiao should be in his sharpest form as he climbs the ring to face an opponent bigger than anyone he’d faced and beaten before. - Abac Cordero, Philippine Star
