Everyone can feel that the “Fighter of the Decade” has been really gearing up for his upcoming bout. The training of Manny Pacquiao versus Antonio Margarito will be more exciting in the next few days. Freddie Roach has offered a US$1,000 pot to all sparring partners of Pacquiao, who will be able to KO the Filipino boxing hero. The reward will definitely motivate Pacquiao's sparring partners in giving their best effort. Roach is trying to raise up the level of Pacquiao's training for his bout with Margarito. The Pacquiao-Margarito bout will be on November 13, 2010 (Sunday in Manila) at the Cowboy Stadium, Arlington Texas, USA.

Undefeated super welterweight challenger Vanes Martirosyan, one of Pacquiao's sparring partners, vowed to be the first to bring down Pacquiao. He will arrive in the Philippines in the next few days to help in the preparations of Pacquiao against the Mexican Margarito. Other sparring partners of Pacquiao includes:
  • Amir Khan of Britain (WBA) light welterweight champion,
  • Glen Tapia of the US, and 
  • Michael Medina of Mexico.
Roach has made the same offer to Pacquiao's sparring partners during his preparation against Oscar de la Hoya in 2008.

Manny Pacquiao, the 7-division-world champion, is currently training in Shape Up Gym in Cooyeesan, Baguio City under the close supervision of Freddie Roach and Team Pacquiao.
