Manny Pacquiao has formally started training in General Santos City with less than two months before his June 28 fight against World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion David Diaz.
He has started working on his conditioning, including exercises such as shadow boxing, speedball, and sit ups to get his body back into fighting form. Diaz, on the other hand is in his second week of training at the JABB Gym in Chicago. Pacquiao intends to leave for Los Angeles only on May 10 for full-blast training at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym. According to Pacquiao, seven weeks of intense preparation would be enough for him to reach peak form.
