Pacquiao Starts Sparring With Rhodes For Bradley II

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

"Fighter of the Decade" Manny Pacquiao sparred four rounds with undefeated Lydell Rhodes (19-0, 9KO's) at the Pacman Wild Card Gym in his hometown of General Santos City on Tuesday under the watchful eye of trainer Freddie Roach.

Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that Pacquiao "looked good" against the shifty Rhodes, a one-time protege of Floyd Mayweather Sr, father and trainer of unbeaten pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Koncz described the first day of sparring and Pacquiao's regular routine as "a tremendous workout."

His seriousness in training for the much-awaited rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 12, prompted Pacquiao to beg-off from standing as principal sponsor at the wedding of "Bai" Elorde, grandson of the late world junior lightweight champion  Gabriel "Flash" Elorde in Manila on Wednesday afternoon.

Koncz said Pacquiao had requested close friend and Ilocos Sur governor Luis "Chavit" Singson to represent him at the wedding.
