MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao’s six-round sparring session yesterday was cut short after the Filipino boxer broke his sparring partner’s nose during their exchange.

Russian boxer Ruslan Nogayev sustained a bloodied nose while slugging it out with Pacquiao during their training camp in Baguio City.

To make up for the shortened sparring session, Pacquiao decided to do several rounds of mitts workout with trainer Freddie Roach.

Pacquiao will defend his WBO welterweight title against unbeaten American boxer Timothy Bradley on June 9.
