Pacman launches cagefest in the middle of training
by Jogin Tamayo

Either the Pacman isn’t serious or Shane Mosley isn’t a threat at all.

Or both, as eight-time world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao staged his own First Manny Pacquiao Basketball Cup in the middle of his high-altitude training in preparation for his defense against American boxer Mosley on May 7 in Las Vegas.

The  boxing icon is himself starring in his own MP Warriors team, brought in straight from General Santos and will clash with several local squads including BBEAL champion University of Baguio, runner-up University of the Cordilleras, Cordillera College from La Trinidad, Chesaa 2011 men’s basketball champion Baguio College of Technology, and three commercial squads.

Pacquiao led his MP Warriors, mostly composed of top players from the PBL and Liga Pilipinas, on opening game humbling the gritty UB Cardinals, 90-80, at the Easter College Gym.

The Warriors actually trailed the Cardinals behind the hot-shooting Klayrhil Elefante who fired 24 points. Pacquiao, who was always given the red carpet whenever he drove to the basket, had 14 points with brother, Bobby, chipping in 10 markers. The MP Warriors followed its first win with an emphatic 111-95 victory over Autofield.

Despite the impromptu tournament, trainer Freddie Roach has not raised a howl and seems to be happy with the way things are going in their training camp saying.  

Even with the basketball cup underway, Pacquiao has slowly regained his condition and is set to spar against unbeaten welterweight Shawn Porter and lightweight David Rodela later this week.

Pacquiao will have his hands full against Porter, who sports a 17-0 win-loss record with 14 knock-outs. While Rodela, boasting an impressive 15-3-3 with six knockouts, is a regular fixture in Pacquiao’s training camps because of his tenacity and resilience.

Boxing promoter Bob Arum also arrived in the country to check on his prized ward in his high-altitude training camp.
