Margarito trains hard, Roach orders Pacquiao to stop Manila travels

Just today, the Mexican Antonio Margarito has been training 10 rounds of boxing against his sparring mates.  Training Robert Garcia is much please with the way Margarito has been showing on his work outs.  He trains hard, last week he spars for eight rounds against his sparring mates and on the last day, he requested for another round and made it nine rounds.  

Robert Garcia planned for Margarito to spar for 10 rounds in preparation for his fight against the Filipino Champion, Manny Pacquiao on November 13, at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

On the other had, Hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach wants Manny Pacquiao to stop traveling to Manila for his work and his late night basketball games.  While training in Baguio, Roach wants Manny to stop his back and forth travel to Manila, "it definitely tiring and won't do him any good," said Roach noting Pacquiao sleeps on his car during travels.

Roach is putting an end to Manny Pacquiao's basketball nights which is said to be missed roadwork in the morning.  Roach said that today would be Pacquiao's last day in playing basketball.  

Though concerns has been on the road for Manny Pacquiao's camp, Manny is still a machine when training.  He might have skipped the morning jog but he sparred seven rounds in the gym, four rounds with Glen Tapia (7-0, 5 KO's) and three rounds with Michael Medina (24-2-2, 19 KO's).  The sparring went well Roach said, later by the week Pacquiao will spar with Amir Khan.
