Pacquiao lands at LAX

LOS ANGELES (May 5, 2012) – Boxing’s Commander-In Chief, Congressman MANNY “Pacman” PACQUIAO, arrived at LAX International tonight aboard Philippine Airlines Flight 102 where he, Hall of Fame-elect trainer World-Famous FREDDIE ROACH and the rest of Team Pacquiao were greeted by throngs of fans and international media. Here’s what they had to say:

Manny Pacquiao

“No matter what Bradley says I still have the hunger to win. I had a great camp in the Philippines. No distractions at all. We are ready to step it up over the next four weeks at Wild Card. This is a big fight for me. I can’t wait for June 9.”

Freddie Roach

“Maybe Bradley should come over to the Wild Card and see how hard Manny
works in the ring. No one works harder - no one - and Manny is not ready to give up his
throne. Manny is so serious. He gave up playing basketball and that means a lot to him. He is a serious, dedicated athlete going into a very big fight. Now we do our finishing training at the Wild Card. I promise you Manny will shoot the works when he faces Bradley.”

Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs), boxing’s only eight-division world champion and the lone congressional representative from the Sarangani province in the Philippines, will begin his four-week U.S. training camp, on Monday, May 7, at Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, Calif. Pacman will be defending his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight championship crown against undefeated WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KOs), of Palm Springs, Calif.

The Pacquiao vs. Bradley welterweight championship collision will take place Saturday, June 9, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nev., and will be produced and distributed Live by HBO Pay-Per-View®, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
