Freddie Roach Says Pacquiao Off To a Fast Start in Camp

Manny Pacquiao is off to a fast start in training - power, speed, movement - says chief trainer Freddie Roach.  Pacquiao is in his high-altitude phase of training in Baguio City.

"Now I believe what I had been reading," Roach said. "Manny was working hard in training before I got here."

Pacquiao told reporters he is re-charged with a change of lifestyle and is eager to take on undefeated Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, June 9.  Bradley is training in his hometown of Palm Springs, California.

Pacquiao has been running for miles each morning at Burnham Park in Baguio City. Yesterday in training Pacquiao hit the mitts with Roach, then did work on the heavy bag, double end ball and speed bag.

Trainers in camp include Buboy Fernandez who oversaw Pacquiao's earlier workouts in General City.  Pacquiao is scheduled to arrive into Los Angeles during the first weekend in May. He will work out at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California.

[QUOTE=Oh you out son;12021520]what? he'd be the underdog because of his garbage outing last time against Marquez and Floyd looked good against Ortiz while it lasted and an undefeated fighter almost always will be odds favorite in a pro fight.[/QUOTE]…
