Pacquiao-Cotto: Koncz Says No Training Worries

World pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz says there is “no need to worry” about Pacquiao’s training schedule for the “Fire Power” encounter with WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto because “everything is going according to schedule.”

Koncz told BoxingScene.com, insidesports.ph, Standard Today and Viva Sports that Pacquiao had set a September 5 deadline to finish shooting his movies, TV shows and commercial endorsements and that “everything is right on schedule.”

He said Pacquiao was working even on Sunday just so he could get everything done and then concentrate on training for the Cotto fight.

Koncz said Pacquiao had started jogging but would now begin running on a regular basis.

He said that the Filipino boxing icon will begin training in the gym and stepping up his preparation after the promotional press tour which is scheduled to begin in New York on September 10.

Koncz said he didn’t know what trainer Freddie Roach was talking about when he criticized both Koncz and Pacquiao’s lawyer Franklin “Jeng” Gacal.

As for Pacquiao’s decision on a training site, he said they were scheduled to meet over dinner to discuss the options.

  1. good luck team pacquiao!

  2. i hope manny heeds coach roach's choice of training location.

    i'm sure manny realizes that he is at the peak of his boxing career, that point in which all fighters in the world for all time aspired for, yet so few achieved.

    should he need a reminder, here's mine:


  3. Coach knows best, hence, Manny should try to get in touch a.s.a.p. with his coach to clear matters regarding worries and concerns of Freddie Roach.
    Besides, fans of Manny Pacquiao may have started worrying, too, the way Mr. Roach does!
    Hey, Pacman, don't take Cotto for granted 'coz Freddie sees somethin' different with Miguel Cotto's power!
