Buboy Denies Chatter That Pacquiao is Burning Out in Camp

Buboy Fernandez, the head trainer and best friend of eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao, denies his fighter is burning out in camp.

Pacquiao is coming back on July 14th in Malaysia, when he challenges WBA "regular" welterweight world champion Lucas Matthysse.

For Pacquiao, this will be his first bout since July 2017 - when he lost a shocking twelve round unanimous decision to Jeff Horn in Brisbane, Australia.

But this is not the same Pacquiao who captured a record amount of titles.

He's now 39-years-old and working full-time as a senator in the Philippines.

Freddie Roach, who trained the Filipino superstar for 16 years, wanted Pacquiao to retire - because he felt the work schedule of a senator was way too much when combined with a boxing career.

And that Pacquiao was burning out, from juggling too many responsibilities, erupted earlier this week.

On Wednesday, Pacquiao began training at the Elorde Gym in Pasay City after attending a senate session.

After an hour or so inside the dressing room, asked the members of the coaching staff to take a break from the training day.

Buboy denied the speculation that Pacquiao is physically fading in training.

"No, not really,” Buboy told The Manila Times.

"Pacquiao told me and coach Justin that in as much as we’re scheduled to leave for GenSan, why can’t we cancel the day’s schedule so everybody can rest. We also thought it’s better that we cancel that day’s schedule him fresh for the much tougher stage of the preparation.

“We know — coach Justin, Noy (Nonoy Neri), Haplas (Roger Fernandez), Dodong (Donaire) Ting (Ariosa), Jonathan (Peñalosa), everybody — that the eyes of the entire boxing world are on us. What we can only promise them is, we know what we’re doing, we know the best way to prepare him for this fight and for him to win."

Bubba will throw in the towel in the late rounds. Manny's shot to shiznit.
