"He has more at stake now. If he loses, he feels like he's letting his whole country down."
Those are the words of Freddie Roach in the next episode of Showtime's critically acclaimed Fight Camp 360°, airing this Saturday at 10pm ET/PT, as we get closer to the May 7 showdown between Manny Pacquiao and "Sugar" Shane Mosley
Is anyone getting more excited about this fight as it draws near? This thing's in just over two weeks, which seems crazy because it just hasn't fully kicked in for me yet. I'm excited to see Manny fight, but I'm always excited to see Manny fight, but I can't honestly say I'm getting too terribly pumped for the fight itself. I was more amped up when the card still had the Soto-Antillon rematch and not a Ray Narh fight, but what can you do on that score, I guess?
We'll continue to have a metric ton of coverage for this big fight night as we count down the days. Usually I get excited the day before with the weigh-in. We'll see if I get there again. (I will. I always do.)
