Not like in the last two years in visiting Manny's training, Brad was never impressed the way manny trains on those two years. Brad started to visit manny's training since the david diaz fight. But It seems lately he was not serious in training like before, he was more passive, as if he was only there physically. In sparring he was never the same fighter as before, he just counter his opponent and very tentative in punching. In short no more hunger in Manny's heart, and he was not focused mentally, he was just there for the money i think or the pressure to stay busy. The reason why Brad never informed me regarding Manny's status for the last two years because he can't report any positive sign during those years. The reason that i never also posted/shared any thread regarding Manny during those times.
But last week Brad was amazed with manny's conditioning, strength and unorthodox style in sparring, Not only that he regain his old self but also his speed and power were added ten times. His sparring partners can't catch him, his volume punching is very accurate that forced one of his sparring partner not to continue. In 8 rounds of sparring Brad can only count in his fingers that his sparring mates touched him. Since the david diaz fight Brad until bradley, Brad didn't witness anything like that from Manny Pacquiao. According to Buboy, Manny was never deteriorate physically, he just feel contended with what he has accomplished fame and fortune and the hunger was no longer there the reason why for the last 3 years his performance slowed down. But because of some critics, his hunger is back and now trains like beast. Buboy added that the condition of manny right now can be compared to the first barrera fight, the only different now is his strategies, power and speed just improved a lot from those years.
All that hype won't help Pacquiao on fight night.
Good luck, Manny.
