Pacquiao goes in sparring mode

To get ready for his ring appearance in almost 16 months, Pacquiao imported the core of his training team to General Santos City.

Manny Pacquiao finally brought in a sparring partner as the Filipino eight-division champion enters the crucial phase of his buildup for the 11 December exhibition fight in Goyang, South Korea.

But the sparring was so light that the purpose was more on defense as Pacquiao threw occasional straights and jabs to gauge his range.

Last time Pacquiao had fighter in front of him was in August last year when he got upset by Cuban Yordenis Ugas.

Pacquiao will face Korean YouTube personality DK Yoo in six, two-minute rounds.

To get ready for his ring appearance in almost 16 months, Pacquiao imported the core of his training team to General Santos City.

Instead of taking it nice and easy, Pacquiao opted to train almost as if he is getting for a legitimate comeback bout.

He ran in the morning and showed up for gym sessions in the afternoon with Buboy Fernandez, Nonoy Neri and Jonathan Penalosa watching his every move.

Yoo, who is a self-proclaimed in various martial arts, will outweigh Pacquiao by a ton.
