I was thinking on the last 24/7 that the concept was getting a bit stale but for some reason I liked this one. One could argue there was too much focus on non boxing related things but I'm glad they focused on that (the typhoon in the Philippines). It's really unfortunate whats happening there.

Some observations. I can understand Pacquiao perhaps feeling like he doesn't want to turn his back on his country by leaving (he has the resources to do that unlike 90% of the people there) his training camp there, but it seems like he changes his mind every five minutes of sorts. You wonder who really runs the camp. Is it Roach or Pac's people??

Anyone familiar with that dish Cotto was eating? It looked really good. Cotto's training always looks good and steady. Those sparring partners of his looked pretty big. I'm curious of their speed which is the one thing i think cotto needs his sparring to mimic. Oh, incredible mansion they're staying in also.

Didn't know this fight was at 145lbs either.

All these looks and no responses, guess many missed it on HBO last night. I watched it and was dissappointed for the most part. I just honestly found it boring, but it's better than nothing.

Cotto's friend is one fat mofo! They need this guy on a diet and workout plan. Cotto definately looks to be real serious for this fight, I like the way he has been training extra long for this fight. If Pac does not get Cotto out early in this fight, Pac is in trouble. I liked the way Roach interupted Pac in his lunch with that political figure(i think thats who he was), Manny seems to have too many other things on his plate when he should only be focused on training. I do not care for Roach, but it is good he made a stand for the benefit of Pac and his training.

I personally think that Team Pacquiao is staging all the supposed "tension" and "altercations" to try and throw Cotto off. I don't buy into any of it.


I still see Pacquiao winning honestly. But I'm backing Cotto all the way. I hope I'm wrong.

All I really hope for is a good fight! The 24/7 was interesting but pretty boring...too much focus on the typhoon really. Haha and the food Cotto was eating looked damn good! What you guys think of the speed Pac's going to bring? You think Cotto will be able to handle it?

Good question. I sure hope Cotto is prepared for it, cause Pac is crazy fast. Cotto needs to keep a tight defense so he does not get hit with any hard flush shots early.

Pac looks crazy fast against washed-up fighters.

He's not as fast as HBO announcers and nuthuggers claim he is.

Arum will never put that little overrated thing in with Mayweather.

He looked pretty fast hitting the mitts. Dude looked strong as well. Cotto looks solid a s usual, but I wish he got a better trainer.

Or, maybe, Pac is 10 times faster than what you think he might be.
