Pacquiao wraps up LA camp, leaves for Vegas
LOS ANGELES – After a full workout that included four rounds of sparring, Manny Pacquiao got dressed, signed a few autographs, and then hopped into an SUV with Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson to lead the multi-vehicle motorcade out of the Wild Card Gym towards Las Vegas.
Pacquiao will challenge unbeaten American Timothy Bradley Jr. for the WBO welterweight title on April 12, and wrapped up his Los Angeles training camp with a strong workout.
“Malapit na (ang laban) at excited na rin ako,” the “Pacman” said.
Meanwhile, Coach Freddie Roach has been pleased with the camp, declaring Pacquiao 100% ready for the rematch against Bradley.
“From here on out, it’s just maintaining,” said Roach. “We’ll run a couple of days of mitt work. Just really going through the game plan and fine tuning all the work we’ve done.”
“I’m feeling good,” added Pacquiao. “I’m excited to go to Vegas and continue exercising there until the fight.”
While Pacquiao’s killer instinct has been questioned by Bradley throughout the camp, Roach believes the “Pacman” will bring the aggressiveness with him come fight time.
“When he told me this time, I will finish him. He expressed that to me. He’s told me that for the first time ever, and I like what I hear,” said Roach.
Bradley will leave for Las Vegas later this week as he will be attending Tuesday night’s Los Angeles Lakers game.
Pacquiao will have a grand entrance ceremony on Tuesday afternoon to kick off what is expected to be one of Las Vegas’s biggest fight weeks of the year.
