LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Manny Pacquiao drove himself to the gym in his Mercedes sports car every single day during his entire training camp for his fight against American Shane Mosley.
Pacquiao has been very enthusiastic, working extremely hard.
Coach Freddie Roach couldn't be happier. His student has been sharp from day 1, and knows the strategy to beat Shane Mosley
"Masasabi natin na more than a 110% na tayo ngayon, kasi maaga tayo nag-umpisa ng training," said Buboy Fernandez, co-trainer of Pacquiao.
Pacquiao is a picture of confidence one week before the fight on May 7 (May 8 in Manila), even belting out a few lines before his workout.
Monday (Tuesday in Manila) was the last training day here in Los Angeles. Pacquiao is all set, getting ready to do.
Pacquiao wanted to do more on the ring, but his coach had to put the reigns on the world champ.
The Filipino champion let out more steam in the heavy bag, impressing everyone around him, including showbiz friends Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz.
Outside the gym, the huge Pacman bus waited for other members of Team Pacquiao for the trip to Las Vegas.
After practice, Pacquiao passed by his tattoo shop and even watched while one customer was having a tattoo done.
Wife Jinkee Pacquiao met her husband at the Wild Card to make the trip to Las Vegas.
"Na-miss ko ang Vegas. Excited na rin ako sa fight," Jinkee said.
Pacquiao likes to do the land trip from Los Angeles every time he fights in the boxing capital.
More than 10 vehicles followed his special utility vehicle.
It was night time when the group reached Las Vegas. Husband and wife quickly went through the side entrance up to their suite at the hotel at Mandalay Bay.
It is a huge one, with several bedrooms, a pool table, living room, dining room, treadmill and big bathrooms.
After touring his accommodation, Pacquiao gathered his small group and led the evening prayers, which he usually does 9 days before the fight.
