Undeniably, the boxing fights of Pacman are among those that are most-awaited not only in the Philippines and the country of the boxer he will fight against but across the globe. He is set for a month-long intensive training.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, boxer-turned-senator Manny Pacquiao is set to fly to Los Angeles for his training. He is set to train at Wild Card Gym, a gym by American boxing trainer Freddie Roach.
Speaking to boxing journalist Nick Giongco, Pacman expressed that he is off to Los Angeles in the second week of July before the State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte. He has watched Spence at the ringside in his fight against Mikey Garcia in March 2019.
