Pacquiao in top shape

Pacquiao vs ClotteyTOP Rank promoter Bob Arum said Fighter of the Decade and pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao is so fit he can fight tomorrow, noting that trainer Freddie Roach’s job is to slow him down.
“Pacquiao is getting rave reviews on his performance in the gym and everybody is saying they can’t believe how great he’s looking,” Arum told Standard Today.
The promoter said everything is going well in terms of the Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey World Boxing Organization title defense of the Filipino at the $1.2 billion Dallas Cowboys Stadium on March 13 as well as the Pinoy Power III/Latin Fury 13 fight card on Sunday.
Arum said all the fighters on the card, which showcases five promising Filipinos against Latino counterparts, are in good shape.
“All the fighters are confident and they are all coming to win,” said Arum of the card which has stirred a lot of interest both among the Filipino fans and their Hispanic counterparts.
The fights will be telecast in the Philippines by ABS-CBN over Channel 2 at 10:30 a.m. with a replay over Studio 23 at 8:30 p.m. It will also be telecast globally to Filipinos abroad on The Filipino Channel. Ronnie Nathanielsz
