Pacquiao back at Wild Card to train for Bradley fight

LOS ANGELES – Before dawn, Manny Pacquiao was out on the streets for the second day on the US leg of training camp in preparation for his April 9 showdown against Timothy Bradley.

After a neighborhood jog the part-time PBA player held his own morning shoot around, showing off a few of his basketball moves before posing and signing for the few fans gathered to watch the eight-division champion train.

On Monday afternoon it was back to the Wild Card gym for mitt work with coach Freddie Roach.

It was also a happy reunion as Top Rank CEO Bob Arum watched his prize fighter in action.

“Today I feel good,” said Pacquiao. “We did good in the Philippines and we’re very excited to go here.”

The Pacman has not fought since May of last year and while eager for the fight, Pacquiao has said this this April 9 clash would be his last fight.
“We’ll do everything we can to win,” he said. “To still bring happiness and pride to our country.”
After 10 hard-hitting mitt rounds with his fully healed shoulder, Pacquiao wrapped up his first day at the Wild Card with some bag work.

For the rest of March, the Wild Card gym will be his home. The Pacman will get three weeks of training in Los Angeles before the team heads to Las Vegas for fight week.
