MANNY PACQUIAO BEGINS TRAINING IN BAGUIO APRIL 14, 2012

MANILA, MARCH 7, 2012 (http://www.mp8.ph/) The country’s Summer Capital will again be home to the Filipino southpaw in the early part of his training, before proceeding to the Wild Card gym in Los Angeles for the rest of the build-up to the fight.

“Three weeks muna tayo sa Baguio, and then five weeks sa Wild Card na.

Eight weeks uli lahat-lahat ang training natin,” said Pacquiao Saturday night, when he graced the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Annual Awards Night at the Manila Hotel as one of the special guests.

Manny Pacquiao, considered one of the greatest fighters of all-time, has been installed
as a heavy 5-1 favorite to breeze past the 28-year-old Bradley, the reigning WBO light-welterweight champion.

The boxing champion expects training camp to commence shortly after the Holy Week.

“Jogging and takbo lang muna bago katapusan ng buwan, para may hangin na pag-start ng training sa April,” said the boxing champion, who shared the presidential table with Vice-President Jejomar Binay, Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) president Jose `Peping’ Cojuangco, International Olympic Committee (IOC) representative to the country Frank Elizalde and pool king Dennis Orcollo, co-recipient of the PSA’s Athlete of the Year honor, together with Nonito Donaire Jr, another Filipino boxer. -
