Boxer laureate Manny Pacquiao is back!  Hailed as a national treasure by his fellow Filipinos, Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs), boxing’s only eight-division world champion and the BWAA's reigning Fighter of the Decade, is in his most intense phase of training as he prepares for his WBA welterweight world title defense against four-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs), of Cincinnati.  Pacquiao vs. Broner takes place on Saturday, January 19, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  It will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV® and presented by Premier Boxing Champions beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.

On Christmas, after another long run and strength and conditioning in the morning, Manny sparred eight rounds with three different partners, followed by another hour of mitt work with Roach before he tore into the heavy bag.  Following his Wednesday run, Manny was greeted by a representative from VADA for a random drug test.  After his blood was taken, Manny cheerily predicted he would test positive for excellence.  Fernandez, sensing that jetlag was finally settling in, gave Manny the afternoon off to rest.

[QUOTE=gritsteel;19402508]It has been like that ever since the beginning. Buboy translated what Roach said to Pacman, when Pacman did not know English much. I'm sure Buboy sneaked in his own advice, and that went on through the years. Pacman just…

[QUOTE=mikehdaddy;19402280]I’d say Freddie should be the head trainer, and if he isn’t that it speaks to the general dysfunction of Pacquiao’s camp. I can’t imagine that anyone knows boxing better than Roach in that camp.[/QUOTE] roach does have more boxing…
