Pacquiao miss training due to illness

It was reported today that Manny Pacquiao was not able to practice due to some sickness.  Could this be a cause of massive work out or to much fatigue?

Manny Pacquiao's strength and conditioning trainer Alex Ariza said that the pound-for-pound king did not report to the gym today.  "He was not feeling well.  He's a little bit under the weather," Ariza said to the The Star via phone.  This is the first time Ariza saw Manny out of the gym the whole day since he join the team.  Pacquiao was suspected with a sinus problem.  To ordinary people, we could heal this through medication.  But to Manny Pacquiao it is a different situation.  He has to depend more on natural healing because it may have some substances that would trigger positive to a PED test which every boxer should stay away from.  Specially Pacquiao who was already accused by Mayweather's camp for steroids. 

It was also reported last week ago that Manny had also had problems on his foot.  But physicians said that it is nothing to worry about, it was just a minor problem. The cause of the injury was Manny Pacquiao's footwear.  "He's not used to that kind of footwear so his heels somewhat swells," Roach said referring to a leather shoes Manny wears while working as a Congressman.
