With less than two weeks to go before fight night, it looks like Manny Pacquiao is coming along nicely in training.
Tuesday afternoon in fact, the 39-year old former eight division boxing world champion went hard for sparring day, as he gets ready to challenge reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Lucas Matthysse at Fight of Champions in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
Pacquiao went for eight rounds of sparring Tuesday, five against Australian training partner George Kambosos Jr. and five against Pinoy Jheritz Chavez at the Wild Card Gym in Pacquiao's hometown of General Santos City.
After getting his reps inside the ring, Manny cooled down for a bit before hitting the bag and the speedball.
