Manny Pacquiao works out at Warriors facility

Sep 2, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

Of course, we all know Manny Pacquiao as the head coach of  the Kia Sorentos of the Philippine Basketball Association. A team that also drafted Pacquiao as a player — he is an old-school player coach ala Bill Russell. And he wants to bring in Metta World Peace to his roster.

Maybe Pacquiao has dabbled in some other sport, I don’t recall, but right now the long-time NBA fan is focused on basketball.

So much so he was working out at the Warriors facilities on Monday. Below are some photos, courtesy the Golden State Warriors Web site.

    He’ll be a beast on the boards. He does know how to box…out.

    Thank you. I’m here all week.

      Floyd would give him the shut down D tho

        Floyd wouldn’t be able to read Manny’s moves.

        Floyd would find an excuse not to play against him

    Doubtful that he’d pass the NBA’s drug testing program.

    Mayweather would give him the shut down defense

      Floyd is an amazing fighter, truly one of the best ever. I would love to see these two fight… I wish Pacquiao would submit to drug testing, and Mayweather would be more flexible with logistics.

        “On September 25, 2012, Mayweather and Pacquiao reached a confidential settlement in their federal defamation case. In a statement released through the mediator in the case, the Mayweathers said they “wish to make it clear that they never intended to claim that Manny Pacquiao has used or is using any performance-enhancing drugs, nor are they aware of any evidence that Manny Pacquiao has used performance-enhancing drugs.”[19]

        The Telegraph reported on December 20, 2013, that Mayweather said Pacquiao’s association with promoter Bob Arum is the reason why the bout will not happen. “We all know the Pacquiao fight, at this particular time, will never happen, and the reason why the fight won’t happen is because I will never do business with Bob Arum again in life, and Pacquiao is Bob Arum’s fighter,” Mayweather said.”

        Pacquiao even challenged Mayweather to fight for charity, they won’t receive any money in return.

        Pacquiao appeared on the ESPN program First Take on September 20, 2012, and said he had no problem with the drug-testing issue. “No problem,” Pacquiao said. “Whatever he wants to do.” Pacquiao said he was willing to be tested even on the night of the fight. “No problem,” he said. “Even the night of the fight. No problem”.

        Manny is juicing and doesn’t wanna take the test. Call it what it is!! Manny can say all he wants. Like the old saying goes ” actions speak louder than words”.!! IJS!!

      • au1978 - Sep 2, 2014 at 9:39 PM

        Yeah, he’s one of the best ever if that means dodging real challenges and only agreeing to fight guys he’s guaranteed to beat.

      • asimonetti88 - Sep 3, 2014 at 1:08 AM

        Mayweather requested Pacquiao submit to Olympic-style drug testing up to 14 days within the fight. Pacquiao refused to anything less than 24 days, which was down from his original request of 30 days. Pacquiao had previously submitted to the 24 day deadline in his 2nd round KO against Ricky Hatton- a fight after which Hatton said he regretted not requesting the same drug testing conditions as Mayweather.

        Pacquiao has jumped far too many weight classes far too quickly to NOT be using some type of steroids or PEDs. That type of weight change is not natural.

        Pacquiao is a very good fighter, but anyone who actually watches boxing regularly and follows the sport knows that Mayweather is a much better fighter. His technical prowess and speed would overwhelm Pacquaio. I see Pacquiao wearing out in the 6th or 7th round. I know that it is not a “popular” opinion but among actual boxing fans Mayweather is one of the greatest fighters of all time, and he is simply a much better fighter than Pacquiao, even if Money’s personality is… rough to say the least. It’s not really an insult- similar to how Kevin Durant is the second best player in the NBA right now, Pacquiao is the second best fighter right now… He’s the Durant to Mayweather’s LeBron.

    We all know Floyd is scared, it’s pretty obvious

  5. steeltothebones - Sep 2, 2014 at 10:12 PM

    Um dude, your never guaranteed a fight in Boxing. Smh!

  6. sonnysuave - Sep 2, 2014 at 10:37 PM

    Mayweather fans are sooo clueless! If only they knew…

    Basketball player

    What’s next? Dog whisperer? Scientist? Deep sea fisherman?

    • freshstarz - Sep 3, 2014 at 7:34 PM

      I can see him being a judge on philipinos got talent or something.

  8. imakcds - Sep 3, 2014 at 8:54 AM

    you all can talk as much smak about either fighter, but when either of them can CRUSH you with the wallet in their back pocket, I certainly don’t think your comments even register in their universe

    • asimonetti88 - Sep 3, 2014 at 10:34 AM

      Floyd’s game is more about finesse than power

  9. odnalro072013adirolf - Sep 3, 2014 at 1:44 PM

    Not content of focusing to one discipline. Getting attention issue or masquerading that he knows everything to mask his lack of education and eloquence. I won’t be surprised joining next maybe the ala American Ninja as Philippine Ninja WARRIOR.
