  1. Pacquiao doesnt make excuses period!!His victims makes excuses!!!

  2. pacman's trainning is kind of variety style,he train in the gym and after that he strengthen his heart by singing karaoke, because singing is good for the heart, and mixed with playing basketball for the legs and it is more than he jog 10 kilometers when he plays basketball.thats a good idea to measure how much energy he has,so when he fight he will not get tired.
