Pacquiao Looks Relaxed in Training, No Ankle Problem

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

"Fighter of the Decade"  Manny Pacquiao looked relaxed in training at his MP Towers Gym in Manila on Tuesday and showed no signs of being bothered by a sprain in his right ankle suffered while playing three straight games of basketball on Saturday.

A smiling Pacquiao went ten rounds on the punch-mitts and his footwork was good and showed his usual agility.

Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN told us that Pacquiao displayed power in his right hook as well as his jab.

He also skipped rope and went through his routine to strengthen his abdominal muscles.

Fans and staff at the MP Towers were happy to see Pacquiao training after a long time while the eight division world champion who earlier told us he is excited to get back in the ring against Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios in Macau on November 24 looked very happy and contented while working out.

After Manny gets knocked out by Rios, the ankle excuse will resurface along with "Manny wasn't fully focus on training".

Pacquiao has to maintain relevance. Somehow.
