Manny Pacquiao To Start Training Camp on April 16th

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Manny Pacquiao will begin training in Baguio City on April 16 for his WBO welterweight title defense  against Timothy Bradley scheduled for the MGM Grand Garden Arena on June 9.

Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that he had been instructed to represent Manny at the red carpet, black tie  launch of  Manny’s new Hennesy Brandy commercial in New York on Thursday.

Pacquiao shot the commercial some weeks ago in Manila and the sponsors were very pleased with the end product.

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza who arrived last week together with former WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan was followed on Wednesday by trainer Freddie Roach.

Ariza told BoxingScene/Standard he didn’t think “its too late to begin straining on April 16”  but that he that he wants to talk to Pacquiao about “a training game-plan.”

The strength and conditioning guru who teamed up with Roach some weeks before Pacquiao’s demolition of WBC lightweight champion David Diaz in nine rounds said the fight against undefeated Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley “is going to be a war.”

He emphasized that Pacquiao “needs to prepare physically” pointing out that “its not going to be a fight of technique.” 

Ariza reminded Pacquiao that Bradley “is young and strong” and is usually in great shape for his fights.
