Ariza Denies Pacquiao Knocks Out Sparring Partner

The Filipino champion Manny Pacquiao 52-3-2, 38 KOs) performed an exceptional 8 rounds of sparring on Tuesday with three separate sparring partners and that’s according to his strength-and-conditioning coach Alex Ariza, adding that the boxing icon still looks great and shows no signs of slowing down.

For anyone who hasn’t known about it, Alex Ariza takes charge of Pacquiao’s workout at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California sans Freddie Roach who flew to Manchester earlier this week to oversee developments of Amir Khan’s upcoming fight.

Ariza revealed to the media men, “Pacquiao is doing really, really well. He sparred three rounds with welterweight Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield (13-0-1, 8 KOs) and three rounds with another welterweight prospect Shawn “Showtime” Porter, plus two rounds with long-time sparring partner, lightweight Raymund “Sugar” Beltran”. With those hardy sparring partners, who would have believed Pacquiao still stands up and can even joke around to lighten up the mood of his training? That’s the true spirit of a boxer, no more, no less.

Albeit everything else, Ariza bluntly denied an earlier report on the internet that Pacquiao shook the consciousness out of Shawn Porter, stating that whatever word went out exaggerating Pacquiao’s skills, well, nothing’s true about it. He didn’t even have a single idea who first started the spark of allegations but he assured the public that the brief comic relief was not at all true. He marveled at the fact that Shawn Porter is a sturdy and tough fighter, and he’s still standing.

Ariza also noted that Pacquiao is by far stronger than any fighter he handled. “We’ve been doing more strength work, plyometrics (a type of exercise training designed to produce fast, powerful movements) and isometrics this week and in the next two weeks we will see a big and strong Manny.”

Well fans, a few more weeks and you’ll all wake up to bets and excitement as to who will emerge the next boxing king for the fight. Get loaded with juicy tidbits and watch Pacquiao vs Mosley only here.
