Peñalosa opens his gym to Pacquiao as ‘Ramil’ KOs Baguio camp

Pacquiao vs Cotto Online Live Streaming
Two-division world champion Gerry Peñalosa has been a familiar fixture in almost every training camp of Manny Pacquiao in the United States.

The two actually even sparred when Pacquiao was preparing for his first-ever shot at the world crown, the World Boxing Council (WBC) flyweight belt which was then held by Thai legend Chatchai Sasakul. Pacquiao stopped Sasakul in the eighth round to claim the crown back in 1998.

On Monday afternoon, Peñalosa opened the doors of his Mandaluyong gym to Pacquiao, who arrived on the same day in Manila after several hours of land trip from Baguio City.

After seeing Pacquiao complete his day’s training that included punch mitts, skipping rope and speedball, Peñalosa told GMANews.TV that he's still in awe at how the current pound-for-pound king continues to improve his skills.

Pacquiao is preparing for his battle with World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight ruler Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico on November 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“Lumaki na talaga siya (Pacquiao) pero ibang klase yung improvement ng bilis at lakas niya. Akala ko babagal siya nang konti kasi magdadagdag siya ng timbang," said Peñalosa, a former superflyweight and bantamweight champion.

When Pacquiao ascended to full-fledged boxing stardom, Peñalosa was his training buddy at Hollywood’s Wild Card Gym where they are both trained by famed guru Freddie Roach.

“Ibang klase talaga kung training ang pag-uusapan kay Manny. Buhos talaga lahat sa kanya kaya naman ganito na kalayo ang narating niya," added Peñalosa.

Out of Baguio

Pacquiao has cut short his Baguio training and is now in Manila to avoid the impending storm in Northern Luzon.

“Kahit na Baguio, Manila o US ang training ni Manny, basta may gym hindi problema ang paghahanda niya. Hindi na issue sa kanya kung masama panahon basta may bubong yung gym, walang problema kay Manny," added Peñalosa.

On Tuesday afternoon, Pacquiao is set to go 10-rounds in sparring with sparmates Shawn Porter, an undefeated light middleweight prospect, welterweight campaigner Danny Escobar and two-time world lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo.
