Manny Pacquiao missed training so naturally, he already began his preparations for the supposed final fight of his career against Timothy Bradley.
The eight-division world champion started his conditioning back in January before he hit the road this weel. The Pacman ran 5.3 kilometers in just 28 minutes earlier today.
"Almost one year na, na-miss ko talaga. I think it makes me very excited," Pacquiao said per Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News.
Pacquiao's early routine also included interval training and he ran around his home in Makati with two veteran triathletes.
He also incorporated dribbling skills to attack his arms.
As for his injured shoulder, Pacquiao's American doctor already cleared it for training.
"Dr. Elatrache said he was amazed that the shoulder is so well and good without formal theraphy, so we have no restrictions whatsoever in training," adviser Michael Koncz said.
Trainer Freddid Roach will arrive this weekend as Pacquiao's training shifts to General Santos City. The team will move to the US on March.
"We were talking last night and we want not just a win but we are looking for a really good win, powerful," Koncz added.
Pacquiao-Bradley III is scheduled on April 9 at Las Vegas.
