LOS ANGELES - On a cold morning at the historic Griffith Park, Manny Pacquiao took the first steps in his US buildup for the fourth fight against arch-rival Juan Manuel Marquez with a moderate jog, just 36 hours after arriving from Manila.
Not showing any effects from the long-haul flight, Pacquiao tested his world-renowned legs up the hills of his favorite running ground and measured the amount of cardio endurance he has gained the past three weeks while training in his hometown of General Santos.
The morning run should get his legs and lungs accustomed to the cold mornings of this city where he will prepare for the next five weeks leading to his historic fourth encounter with his bitter Mexican rival.
Afterwards, the eight-division world champion sits down with Spin.ph to list down what he thinks would be the key to victory against an opponent he has yet to figure out after three fights. One word readly stands out: Aggressiveness.
Here's the video:
Judging from those words, guess it's safe to say that we can expect none of the calculating fighter that Pacquiao tried to become in his past two fights with JMM. The Pacman's words are also a clear indication that we can expect a slam-bang fight come December 8.
