Pacquiao increases cardio exercises for Thurman bout

Published

on

Manny \’Pacman\’ Pacquiao surely is not taking his upcoming fight easy facing a much younger and unbeaten Keith Thurman Jr.The glaring difference would be the age gap between the two fighters, but Pacquiao will be looking to keep his speed to his advantage, and with the constant cardio exercises, is keen on outlasting the undefeated younger American. 

Pacman elevated his cardio exercises as he prepares for a longer ring fights, maybe going to the judge\’s scorecards. With his usual routine of morning jog and afternoon sparring, the Philippine senator\’s making his jog back and forth.Usually, team Pacquiao runs in a designated location then rides a service going back to his mansion but just recently he upgraded his training by deciding to jog home and added another shadow boxing routine in the mix.By all indications, Pacquiao is ready to go all out in his fight against Thurman. With unrelenting training day after day, the fighting Senator is in unbelievable shape considering his mileage inside the ring. 

n truth, trainers and coaches of the Pacman are surprised by the way he is grinding it out in training compared to his last bout against trash-talking Adrien Broner.His training has become more and more intense and in a surprise moment this week, he met up with former archrival Erik Morales. The difference was glaring as the still Pacquiao is seen in tip-top shape compared to the Mexican.At 40, although we saw him just doing fine on his previous fight wherein he bullied Broner in 12 rounds to notch a unanimous decision victory, Manny wants to make sure he can top Thurman\’s form and give the MGM Grand Arena and the fans watching around the globe an entertaining fight.

He knows he\’s old but still has the speed and Thurman is a tough opponent known for his heavy punches so three weeks before the fight, Pacquiao knows endurance will play a vital role if he wants to taint the clean slate of the American boxer.Meanwhile, his camp is confident Manny is on the perfect weight and just maintaining his diet.Additional exercises and preparation could be seen the following days as the match day is nearing. Pacquiao will vie for the WBA Superwelterweight belt against the champion Keith Thurman this July 20.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

2022 is not yet over but we’ve already seen the fall of our boxing world champions one
by one.
And with Mark Magsayo failing to defend his WBC featherweight belt in his first title
defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
