LOS ANGELES – May 7 is less than 2 weeks away. Even though “Sugar”says he will land big punches early in the fight, says he is ready for what can be an epic battle.
“I work hard for this training camp and he work hard to so that's good, good for the fans, we're going to give them a good fight,” Pacquiao says.
In a telephone conference call with the media recently, Mosley said he'll force the usually aggressive Pacman to become a defensive fighter by landing the big punches early.
Mosley, who knocked out Pacquiao's last foein 2009, is confident he has enough speed to upset the Pacman.
“I know Margarito landed the most punches ever on Manny Pacquiao. So if Margarito is fast enough to land punches on Manny Pacquiao, then I know I'm fast enough to land punches on Manny Pacquiao,” the 39 year-old American said.
Mosley even joked about the Pacman's new CD which will be released on Thursday. He says he's excited to hear it, saying it might bring him good luck.
"Yeah, last time I had fought a person with a CD was when I fought Oscar in 2000, and he came out with a CD and he came in the ring with the CD and I won the fight and things are looking good for me right now," he says.
In the meantime, Pacman is hoping another singer can bring him luck as well—hand pickingto sing the Philippine national anthem.
“Magaling sya na singer at para maipakilala s'ya sa buong bansa Pilipino at sa makita ang galing niya magkanta,” the boxing champ says.
