    Appreciating this version of Manny Pacquiao

    It was June 26, 1997. Manny Pacquiao was scheduled to fight Chockchai 3K Battery for the OPBF flyweight title. I patiently waited for that day to come because I wanted to see if Pacquiao was for. I was in fifth grade then and the fight was airing past my curfew but my parents allowed me to watch anyway because they knew I was a Pacquiao fan. More »

    Las Vegas — It wasn’t vintage Manny Pacquiao who Freddie Roach saw Saturday night but the Hall of Fame trainer still expressed satisfaction over the crystal-clear points win pulled off by the Filipino icon at the MGM Grand. “Manny was a little sloppy tonight but I was still happy,” said Roach after the unanimous decision was announced by Michael Buffer. “He (Bradley) threw us a little bit with his style tonight.

    Pacquiao targets Mayweather in fight all fans crave

    Manny Pacquiao avenged his loss to Timothy Bradley in convincing style, and said he's ready any time to negotiate the bout with Floyd Mayweather that fight fans crave. The win rectified what most saw as a grave miscarriage in their first fight in 2012, when Bradley was awarded a split decision win and the World Boxing Organization welterweight belt. In late 2009 and early 2010, Pacquiao and Mayweather were considered the world's top pound-for-pound fighters and record profits were expected from a showdown. Other negotiations broke down over the division of the purse, and the intervening years have brought a further chill to relations between Bob Arum's Top Rank Promotions and Oscar de la Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions.

    Pacquiao, Bradley seek to erase doubts in world title bout

    Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley go into their welterweight world title rematch on Saturday in Las Vegas aiming to lay the ghost of their polarizing first contest. "I've got to knock him out, that's what I have to do," Bradley said Friday at a raucous weigh-in on a stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. California's "Desert Storm" Bradley seized the World Boxing Organization belt from the Philippine icon with a narrow split decision that many believed the American didn't deserve in June 2012. Although Pacquiao took the defeat in stride, he suffered a brutal knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in his next fight, and is out to prove his subsequent lopsided decision over Brandon Rios marked the start of another illustrious chapter in his storied career.

    Pacquiao still has power and speed, says trainer

    Los Angeles — Four weeks spent conditioning Manny Pacquiao has made returning strength coach Justin Fortune realize that the Filipino still has a lot of gas left in the tank although the April 12 rematch with Tim Bradley won’t be an easy one. Fortune served as Pacquiao’s fitness guru from 2003 until 2007, years when Pacquiao was leaving a trail of broken bones and bloody nostrils in his wake. Fortune, who had a falling out with trainer Freddie Roach, was signed up after Pacquiao let go of Alex Ariza owing to friction within the camp. Even Roach admitted having to “swallow my pride” but quickly realized that Fortune has turned out to be “a perfect fit.” Despite his assessment that Pacquiao remains a hardworker and continues to get motivated, Fortune knows the Bradley “won’t be a cakewalk.” “Bradley is the type of fighter you don’t take lightly,” said Fortune, citing the tremendous courage the unbeaten US fighter exhibited against Ruslan Provodnikov, the Russian puncher who almost knocked him out.
