As I said the other day, I joined my good friend Andreas Hale at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles to spend the day with Manny Pacquiao and his team as they prepare for the fourth clash with Juan Manuel Marquez. In part two of the Life+Times piece we showcase Manny’s rigorous training, Bob Arum explains why this fight will be different than the previous three and the changes Manny has made in his personal life in order to be the best fighter he can be. We also address the elephant in the room: Floyd Mayweather. Bob Arum, Manny Pacquaio and Freddie Roach all give their take on whether they still believe the fight will happen and what exactly is holding it up. And last but not least, Bob Arum discusses the similarities between Pacquiao and Muhammad Ali and where he believes Pacman belongs on the list of top pound-for-pound boxers of all-time.
In case you missed part one, click here, as we discussed the first three fights between Pacquiao and Marquez, why Pacquiao decided not to face Timothy Bradley in a rematch after their controversial last bout and more.
