Saturday, April second was the night me and Manny Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles International airport. After a week long vacation in Maui, my wife and I were greeted and driven home by my nephew Dmitriy. After a month long training camp in Philippines, Manny avoided media and fan fair; jumped into a vehicle that was sent to pick him up and went home. It’s back to work on Monday. We both have busy schedules. What else do we have in common? We both love boxing and are expected in Las Vegas on May 7th, 2011. I will be writing while Manny will be fighting Sugar Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in what is expected to be the biggest fight of this year, unless Floyd Mayweather runs out of excuses or money and decides to fight Pacquiao this fall.
