LOS ANGELES -- Boxing media were treated to a little training camp fun as the Wild Card Gym hosted Manny Pacquiao's media workout 10 days before his July 20 showdown with Keith Thurman.

"I'm so happy na maraming nag-attend na mga media dito. Madaming sumuporta," said Pacquiao.

Pacquiao is now the favorite leading up to this intriguing matchup which has fans and analysts intrigued.

"Thurman is going to be a very good test... We’re going to see how he does. Can Pacquiao be able to get on the inside? Will he land those 30 punch combos?" said Cynthia Conte of the Ring Magazine.

Thurman has told media that he will be aiming for a knockout against the Pacman -- words that only fueled the Filipino.

"It gives more motivation and encourages me," said Pacquiao.

Thurman also went toe to toe with media on Wednesday visiting several TV stations. 

Media day signifies that fight night is drawing closer and closer. In a few days both Pacman and Thurman will be in Sin City ready to face off.
