After uninspiring November showing, Pacquiao raring to go

Manny Pacquiao aims to impress this June.

With his match a little bit more than two weeks away, Manny Pacquiao appears ready to go 12 rounds with boxing challenger Timothy Bradley, Jr.

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza told the website Boxing Scene that Pacman's training schedule is going well, though some days have been better than others.

"Every day is not going to be the best day, but it's [going] relatively well," said Ariza.

While Ariza indicated that Pacquiao is more than ready physically for the fight to go the distance, he's encouraged the Filipino boxing champion to take breaks from training so frequently so he can keep his mind free and clear.

This suggestion may stem from how Pacquiao trained for his last fight against Mexico's Juan Manuel Marquez. Even though Pacquiao won the match on November 11 of last year, threw more punches and landed more body blows – not to mention shots to the head – the 12-round fight was decided on a split-decision. After the fight, Pacquiao told reporters he may have overtrained in his preparations.

This time, Ariza said that he and Pacquiao's other trainers will make sure he doesn't go overboard with his training regimen so he can enter the squared circle fresh and well-rested. The Filipino superstar's other lead trainer, Freddie Roach, confirmed that his fighter is already in taper down mode.

"We're right on schedule," said Roach recently, according to The Philippine Star.

He added that critics of Pacquiao who believe he's washed up and that his best days are behind him will be in for a surprise come June 9th at the MGM Grand. 

"He's still pound-for-pound the best fighter in the world," Roach stated.

Confirming Pacquiao's belief, Roach said the 5'6" champion wasn't himself in his last fight. He's since made the proper adjustments and has focused his training on maintaining the proper balance between rest and exercise.

You can find out for yourself if the 33-year-old Pacquiao is ready to face off against the much younger Bradley by making your first transaction with Xoom. For a limited time, first-time customers who send funds home to their families in the Philippines will receive a $55 prepaid VISA gift card to cover the cost of the pay-per-view event on June 9.

    Well… the project revolves around each person responding to images from a particular location provided by the other… so I shouldn’t really jump the gun on that one as we’re still working on it and my collaborator’s response needs to be relatively unmediated by any written or verbal cues I provide, if that’s possible! All will be revealed!
