HOLLYWOOD – Manny Pacquiao hates lazy Sundays.
Ordered to stay home and rest, the Filipino superstar left his apartment very early in the morning, and with a tight crew went to Pan Pacific Park for a 30-minute run, including some wind sprints, shadow boxing and 1,200 crunches/sit-ups that would have made any ordinary athlete faint.
Pacquiao is already in tip-top shape for his coming fight with Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas on Saturday, and his conditioning coach, Alex Ariza, had wanted him to take it easy and not overdo things.
Manny has to have a rest for some time because too much workout is bad. I think Manny is ready for the big fight now. It shows in his sparring sessions.
