A day with "Pacman"

Just like every other Filipino I have been long following the colorful saga that is Manny Pacquiao.  But never in all these years of covering Pacquiao did I ever have the opportunity to watch him in earnest training. Until one day when I decided to see for myself what it was that everyone who had seen him work out had been raving about.​  Admittedly, despite all the things that have been said and written about his tireless training, I was unprepared for the experience that lasted over 3 hours that afternoon.
