As fight night draws closer, eight division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao continues to put in the work as he gets ready to challenge reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Lucas Matthysse for the title at Fight of Champions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Just hours removed from a hard sparring day at the Wild Card Gym in General Santos City, the 39-year old Pacquiao did some cross training, which included some jogging, circuit training, and plyometrics, all geared to get Manny fit and ready for his upcoming title bout.

Of course, a cross-training session won't be complete for Pacquiao without shooting some hoops.
The former PBA player and team owner - turned - MPBL founder has never been shy about his love for the game of basketball.
