Pacquiao Pumped With Las Vegas Return For Bradley II

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

“Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao is excited to turn to Las Vegas to fight undefeated WBO welterweight champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 12.

Pacquiao’s last fight in Las Vegas was on December 8, 2012 when he suffered a shocking  knockout at the hands of Mexico’s  Juan Manuel Marquez in the final seconds of the 6th round after battering Marquez and having him on the verge of a knockout in the fifth round.

Since the Marquez loss, Pacquiao fought only once scoring a masterful twelve round unanimous decision over former world lightweight champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios at the Cotai Arena in the plush Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino in Macau, China.

Pacquiao preached to a handful of congressman and several employees in the House of Representatives on Tuesday morning  and  indicated he would do so monthly.

The eight division world champion told ABS-CBN reporter Dyan Castillejo that he was “excited to fight again in Las Vegas” and hinted that he would be “aggressive” but it depended on what Bradley’s game-plan turns out to be.

Pacquiao disclosed that when he returns to Manila from the press tour stops in Los Angeles on February 4 and New York two days later, he would train at his gym in the MP Towers on February 10 and 11 before flying to his hometown of General Santos City to resume training at his Pacman Wild Card Gym on February 12.

Castillejo also told the Standard that Pacquiao said he planned to train for one month before the fight at the Wild Card Gym of trainer Freddie Roach in Los Angeles even though his adviser Michael Koncz had earlier indicated Pacquiao would only train for two weeks in LA.

Pacquiao revealed that he wanted to go to the US early so he could once again get used to the conditions in America.
