Pacman to train at Wild Card

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao will set up his training camp at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles as soon as he gets back from the multi-city promotional tour for his Nov. 10 fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. “From the press tour, Manny will stay in the US and begin training,” Arum, who left for the US over the weekend, told Fightnews. Arum said the initial leg of the press tour will be on Sept. 4 in Los Angeles. The succeeding stops will depend on the choice of opponent. Three fighters are being eyed to face Pacquiao: American Tim Bradley, Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez and Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto. If Pacquiao ends up picking Marquez, there will be a stop in Mexico City and if it’s Cotto, the tour will travel to the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan. Arum met with Pacquiao last week and the two discussed what’s down the road for the Filipino star, who is aching to bounce back from the controversial 12-round split decision to Bradley last June. There have been reports that Pacquiao is trying to delay his decision because of the possibility that a fight with Floyd Mayweather can be made for early-2013. But if an agreement cannot be reached, Pacquiao will have no other choice but to name his next foe within the next few days. Pacquiao, 33, had used Baguio City, a high-altitude training camp north of Manila, as his headquarters the last few fights.
