It’s been 5 months since Manny Pacquiao was last in the ring, on the wrong end of a devastating knockout handed to him by arch-rival Juan Manuel Marquez. Now, Pacquiao is back in the gym and getting to work, training for his upcoming fight, which should be this fall. Check out these videos of Pacquiao working in the gym and displaying all of his trademark speed and offensive fluidity.
Here’s the official description of the video:
Manny Pacquiao displaying his ebb and flow as he works the bag. Heavy Bags are great for Strength and Power. They provide resistance upon impact which helps develop stronger punches. Movement around a heavy bag assists in hand eye coordination and helps with footwork. Have you had a chance to work on a heavy bag? Upload your video response and show us!
Sort of a random description there… I think we all know what a heavy bag is. But Pacquiao looks like he’s doing pretty well.
Then we have a second video, of Pacquiao hitting the mitts with Freddie Roach.
So now that we know he’s back in the gym and training, what’s next for Pacquiao? He’ll be fighting, potentially in October, and potentially in Macau, and potentially against Brandon Rios.
Got it? It’s all up in the air right now, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted with any news or updates regarding the details of Pacquiao’s next fight and next opponent.
