Manny Pacquiao wrapped up his training for Saturday night's Showtime pay-per-view bout with "Sugar" Shane Mosley at the famous Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California on Tuesday. He closed up this portion of his camp with a little bag work for the media. Check out this video of Manny working the double end bag:
For those who have never tried working the double end bag, it can be one of the most incredibly frustrating experiences in the world. The speed and accuracy that Pacquiao displays hitting the bag while using lateral movement is one of those "not fully impressive until you've tried it" things.
Then there's this video of Manny working a heavy bag:
When you get past the fun of Manny going back to the "double punch" you can really zoom in on the combination of speed and power. But, what you should watch with a great boxer working the heavy bag is that it isn't just an excuse to stand and throw big punches at a bag. Watch Manny's footwork, the spacing between his feet stays correct, he moves with the bag and throws punches on the move. It's a thing of really subtle beauty.
