Pacquiao Intensve Training, He Means Business

Pacquiao vs Mosley
It was all business on Monday at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, site of the second and final phase of Manny Pacquiaos training camp for the May 7 showdown with Shane Mosley. Except for a select few, only those with official business to conduct inside the sweatshop were allowed access by Freddie Roach, who is leaving no stone unturned in his bid to whip Pacquiao into fiery form for what he describes as a fight theyre not taking lightly. After spending three weeks in high altitude conditions in Baguio City, Pacquiao and Roach uprooted their camp and were back doing what is expected of them as soon as they set foot inside the Wild Card. There was no sparring that took place on the very first day at the Wild Card but beginning Tuesday, Pacquiao will have to contend with just about anyone Roach orders to go up the ring thrice a week up to the final days before the Mosley fight. Roach and Pacquiao have more than one month to rev up for Mosley, who is also in the thick of preparations in Big Bear, a resort town two hours from downtown Los Angeles that has an elevation of close to 8,000 feet. The Pacquiao versus Mosley fight will happen on May 7, 2011 on MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
