LOS ANGELES – After three days of rest, Manny Pacquiao has returned to the gym, with his hard-hitting workouts.

The “Pacman” had caught a cold over the weekend forcing him to skip practice on Monday and Tuesday.

“I’m in good condition, despite having runny nose. In a few days, I’m sure I will be fully well,” the Pinoy boxing champ said.
Coach Freddie Roach said he is not too concerned with the setback as Pacquiao had been ahead of schedule in his training camp anyway.

“Obviously he needed the rest it because he was sick but we’re a little bit ahead of schedule and we’re right back on schedule now,” said Roach.

Keeping the Pacman motivated is Timothy Bradley’s recent claims that the boxing superstar has lost his killer instinct.

Pacquiao is due for a rematch with Bradley on April 12.

“That’s our focus for this training camp and this fight… aggressiveness and more action,” he said.

“He’s very explosive, being very aggressive,” said Roach.

After this week, Pacquiao is down to his final two weeks of camp before he goes to Las Vegas for fight week.
