November 11, 2009 |  6:57 pm



Manny Pacquiao has always thrown punches with tremendous power and superb speed but his ability to elevate to become the world's top pound-for-pound fighter has been based on his dedication to studying.

We have a story on tonight regarding Pacquiao's winning union with trainer Freddie Roach, and in this recent interview I did with him after a session at Hollywood's Wild Card Gym, the Filipino star elaborated on how he likens training lessons and fight plans as homework.
