Pacquiao knocks down sparmate with body shot

Alex Ariza raved so much about the current condition of Manny Pacquiao that the conditioning coach could not come up with anything bad about the progress of the Filipino fighter’s training for the May 2 showdown with Ricky Hatton.

“He’s a juggernaut,” Ariza told the Bulletin yesterday from Los Angeles. Ariza has been presiding over Pacquiao’s strength training at the Wild Card Boxing Club the past several weeks that there’s no doubt in his mind that Pacquiao would prove one thing come fight night.

“Manny’s lethal at this weight division (140 lbs) and he’s going to show that he’s the stronger guy,” said Ariza when told about the common knowledge among aficionados that the British bomber packs more power.

“I will not go as far as saying what Freddie (Roach) said about a third-round knockout but Manny’s been unstoppable right now.” On Saturday afternoon (yesterday morning in Manila), Pacquiao went 10 rounds with three sparring partners, according to Ariza, who supervises Pacquiao’s morning roadwork, his nutrition and plyometrics session, a high-grade form of calisthenics.

“Manny had four rounds with Urbano Antillon, then three with (Raymond) Serrrano and three with David Rodela, who went down from a body shot.” Ariza said Pacquiao weighed 149 lbs last week and “had a 6.75 percent body fat.”

“(Making) the weight (limit of 140 lbs) will not be a problem and we’ll make sure that he even gets to eat on the day of the weighin,” said Ariza, brushing off suggestions that game meat should be included on Pacquiao’s diet.

“We’re sticking to the things that we’re used to.” Meanwhile, Hatton is also deep in training in Las Vegas under Floyd Mayweather Sr. and is presently working with five sparmates.

According to Golden Boy Promotions, Hatton’s promoter, aside from Cuban super-welterweight Erislandy Lara, the 2005 world amateur welter champion, Hatton also works out with Cleotis Pendarvis (9-1-2 record with three KOs), Marvin Quintero (15-1, 12 KOs), Daniel Mitchell (5-0-1 2 KOs) and Cornelius Lock (18-3-1 11 KOs), all left-handed like Pacquiao.
