Nineteen days before the most awaited, big fight of the eight-division world champion Manny \”Pacman\” Pacquiao, the Pambansang Kamao takes his time in training – sparring, practice boxing, and jogging – to defeat the undefeated Keith \”One Time\” Thurman in their upcoming bout on July 20, 2019, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In an exclusive interview with the 40-year-old boxer, the Manila Standard visited the Team Pacquiao to know his present condition and the training he is undergoing in preparations for the upcoming bout.
On his interview with Pacquiao\’s brother-in-law, who is also his part-time bodyguard, Romeo Faldas, said: \”\’Pag nasa Pacific kami, nag-iikot siya mga tatlong ikot then mag-stretching na po \’yan. Mahirap siyang sabayan kasi ang bilis niya, sobrang bilis niya ngayon. Kaya ang ginagawa namin, from doon sa bahay niya sa Beverly Hills, ako nag-co-convoy lang ako. Kasi kapag sinabayan mo si Manny, mauubusan ka talaga ng hangin.\”
\”So, kami as bodyguards, nagco-convoy na lang kami. Ang kasama naman ni Manny na nagjo-jogging sa kaniya is \’yung sila Bobby Pacquiao tsaka \’yung ibang mga boxer. At tsaka \’yung isang Japanese boxer na babae,\” he added.
The eight – division world champion shows the perseverance in every training that he has undergone but with the upcoming fight with Thurman, he is practicing harder than the usual.
\”Mahirap sabayan si Manny, unless you are a boxer, kaya mo siyang sabayan,\” said Faldas.
When asked about the speed and strength he is showing on his training, Faldas said that Pacquiao showed that he is now stronger and faster than before. If he is faster and stronger than before, he shows more agressive as of the moment.

Sa lahat ng training ni Manny, mas super sa condition, mas super malakas si Manny ngayon. Kahit kami nga nagtataka kami ngayon, bakit ganu\’n kalakas si Manny, tsaka ganu\’n \’yung speed niya, ibang-iba. Kaya super amazed kami sa training niya ngayon,\” shared Faldas.
Faldas also agreed to the observation of Pacquiao\’s head coach, Freddie Roach, regarding the boxer\’s performance in training.
\”I don\’t know, tama \’yung si sinabi ni Freddie Roach, mas aggressive tsaka super ang lakas,\” he added.

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.”

KSI returns and wins two fights in one night

Famous YouTuber KSI returned to the boxing ring after some time and he announced it by dominating two fights in one night.

Olajide Olatunji, his real name, first defeated Swarmz, a Briton rapper who happened to be his friend as well. The match ended in the second round and then after several other matches, KSI stepped up once more to TKO Luis Alcaraz Pineda, a true professional boxer.

But despite these wins KSI’s pro record remains at 1-0 as both fights were not given a green light as officially-sanctioned bouts.

One of the undercards in the event was Salt Papi, a Tiktok star that is a Filipino. He won easily in his first fight with an impressive knock out.

Salt Papi became famous for his fake run videos and since then went on a fitness journey that led to his boxing debut

Philippines left with no boxing world champion

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.
