Pacquiao-Thurman: Manny Pacquiao’s Media Workout
Catch a glimse of Pacquiao in training as he prepares to challenge Keith Thurman for his world title.
With Manny Pacquiao’s July 20th world title fight with Keith Thurman just around the corner, the fighting senator holds an open media training session for the world to get a preview of his work.
During this training session Pacquiao goes through a mitt workout with longtime trainer Freddie Roach, with the pair having now reunited after a little hiccup. I mean, Buboy Fernandez is still supposedly the lead trainer at this point, but you get the picture.
The bigger picture is that Pacquiao looks to be genuinely enjoying himself, and training as hard as ever by all accounts. It certainly shows as Pacquiao flashes some real pep in his step to go along with the hand speed and power that’s always been there. Following the workout on the mitts, Pacquiao does some light shadowboxing to round out the session.
So far it looks like Pacquiao is intent on putting on a vintage performance, and if so, Thurman just might not get the aging star he’s expecting.
