In a recent interview with Sports Radio, Promoter Bob Arum said he visited Pacquiao in training at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles and saw for himself how Pacquiao is killing himself in training. Pacquiao is deep in training for his highly anticipated rematch againt Juan Manuel Marquez.

"I was in Los Angeles and I just witnessed Manny Pacquiao’s training," said Arum, to Sports Radio. Arum added: "I have never seen any fighter train so hard for two hours without taking one break. I haven’t seen anything
like this in 42 years."

Arum is simply amazed that Pacquiao has need no breaks during training. "I asked Freddie how he does it. Everybody takes a break. Even Marvin Hagler takes a break. Manny? He never stopped even for one minute. He’s training like a man possessed. He’s in such shape that he’s not human," Arum added.

"If he was unhappy while he was doing it I would be concerned."

Arum knows Marquez is training as hard as Pacquiao, stating: "Reports I’m getting is that Marquez is training as hard as Manny."

The rematch will occur on the date March 15 and is set at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The fight can be seen on HBO Pay-Per-View, beginning at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST.
