8-week training plan of Pacquiao for Mosley fight

Pacquiao vs MosleyEight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao believes he will need a longer training period to prepare against former world welterweight champion “Sugar’ Shane Mosley. “For me, I need 8 weeks training for this fight,” the Filipino boxer said on Thursday.

Pacquiao is taking advantage of his free time by bringing his family to Boracay and Australia during the Christmas break. The Filipino champion said it will be all business when he returns after his vacation.

“This is going to be a difficult fight,” said Pacquiao, the World Boxing Council (WBC) super welterweight and World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title holder. Pacquiao’s fight promoter, Bob Arum, has announced that the Filipino will fight Mosley on May 7, 2011.

"We came to a meeting of the minds," Arum told "I believe it will be an exciting fight. Shane knows how to fight and how to deal with the speed. Manny is in for a hellacious fight. I really believe styles make fights." Pacquiao vs Mosley will be held at MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada.
