This Saturday, Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez will be squaring off for the fourth time. And while we don't normally cover boxing over here at the DopeHouse, I joined my good friend Andreas Hale last week in Los Angeles for an exclusive training camp visit. With HBO and CNN being the only other media outlets present, we (shooting for Life+Times) got to spend the day with Manny Pacquiao. In part one of this two-part feature, we speak with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, sparring partner Ray Beltran and Pacman himself. Covering a number of topics, including the first three fights, why Pacquiao decided not to face Timothy Bradley in a rematch after their controversial last bout and more.
