Pacquiao spars with Castillo

The Philippine Champ Manny Pacquiao had finally engaged former world champion Jose Luis Castillo of Mexico in one of the sparring sessions on Tuesday in his training camp in Baguio City. This was added with the two key figures inside the Filipino’s camp where both were satisfied with the showing of the 35-year-old warhorse from Sonora state. The ex-champ Castillo proved to be a worthy spar mate according to Pacquiao’s Canadian adviser Mike Koncz, who personally picked up Castillo to spend some quality minutes with his boss.

The Conditioning coach Alex Ariza was also all paid praises for Castillo, who will likely fill in the void that will be left by Urbano Antillon. Urbano is due to return to the United States this weekend so he could get used to the local weather there as he prepares for a fight next month. Head coach Freddie Roach wanted to know if Castillo was indeed in shape as he ordered the Mexican to start off the seven-round session by going three rounds with pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao. It was known that after Castillo, Pacquiao worked with unbeaten super-welterweight Shawn Porter. So far, Pacquiao has logged a total of 38 rounds of sparring. Manny Pacquiao, who will face Miguel Cotto on Nov. 14 in Las Vegas, spars thrice a week.

This conditioning activities of Pacquiao in Baguio City is just a few on his daily dues for the Pacquiao vs Cotto match. You will see how dedicated this guy is all through out his trainings.

Lets us watch the Pacquiao vs Cotto fight dubbed as the fire power if he can beat the bigger Cotto in his quest to dominate each and every divisions he is in. Go Manny Pacquiao!
