ABS CBN News reports that Manny Pacquiao has finished up his training in Baguio City on Friday, and is headed to Hollywood's Wild Card Gym for the final month of his preparations for his May 7 fight with "Sugar" Shane Mosley.

On Thursday, Pacquiao was sent off with a native Ifugao ritual in Baguio. If you're not familiar with Ifugao rituatls (and I wasn't), I'll just quote the article:

An Ifugao "baki" (high priest) saw Pacquiao’s success against Sugar Shane Mosley in their May 7 duel following the ritual of sacrificing a chicken and making a "reading" of its bile.

Pacquiao is also planning another post-fight concert in Las Vegas after the fight, as has become his standard. The fighter also has a new official Twitter account. This comes after a previous account centered on his political career in the Philippines lasted a very short time. In all honesty, probably better to stick to boxing on Twitter. And you can take that how you wish.

Nick Giongco of the Manila Bulletin has an article on Manny up, too, with some comments from Freddie Roach. Shawn Porter and David Rodela will head to the Wild Card with Pacquiao and continue as sparring partners, though new partners will also join for the remaining weeks.
