Manny Pacquiao talks about his mental approach to boxing



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.
