Roach tells Pacman to rest

By Nick Giongco

Instead of Thursday, Manny Pacquiao will report for training at the Wild Card in Hollywood on Friday so he can recharge his batteries after attending the two-city press tour promoting his March 13 fight with Joshua Clottey. This was the instructions made by Wild Card guru Freddie Roach to the Filipino fighter himself the moment they landed near LAX International late Wednesday night. “See you Friday, Manny,” Roach told Pacquiao, who were together on an eight-seater plane that also carried Pacquiao lawyer Franklin Gacal, Canadian adviser Mike Koncz, training assistant Roger Fernandez and Manila Bulletin/Fightnews. Pacquiao made stops in Dallas and New York the last couple of days and since it was almost midnight when he got back in Los Angeles, Roach just advised him to recharge his batteries for the start of training camp on Friday.
