In the video above we see Pacquiao’s training compared with Matthyse’s in preparation for their upcoming fight this coming July 14 (US time). I see a very big difference in Pacquiao’s intensity on the heavy bag: Mattysse is hitting single shots, but Pacquiao is throwing punches in bunches, launching an all-out assault on the bag. I’m not seeing a whole lot of intensity from Matthysse, which I believe is critical in training–you’ve got to hit the bag or the mitts with the intent to kill.
Another impressive aspect of Pacquiao’s training is his speed. Despite his age, the hand speed is still there. If you look at the double-end bag sequence, Pacquiao has amazing speed and accuracy.
Pacman vs Matthysse may be a replay of Manny’s fight versus Diaz, in which Diaz famously quipped after getting knocked out, "He was so %$#@ing fast."
