Pacquiao vs Marquez: Manny's Camp Affected By Typhoon, But No Worries From Team

Bad weather from Typhoon Pedring (international name Nesat) has forced Manny Pacquiao to move his training camp around in the Philippines, but strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza says he doesn't expect Manny to be affected boxing-wise:

"It’s raining cats and dogs outside, so it’s impossible to go on with what we started yesterday. ... I can see no problem [having] him in shape come fight night. We still have some two weeks here in Baguio and five more weeks in the U.S., I can’t see any problem, really."

With roadwork out, Freddie Roach has upped Pacquiao's sparring a bit for the time being. The typhoon has caused some heavy damage, with the death toll over 20 at last report. This isn't the first time that Pacquiao's camps at home in the Philippines have been interrupted by inclement weather, as a typhoon also disrupted his cam for last November's fight with Antonio Margarito, which was called by Roach the worst camp of Pacquiao's career, though it did result in a one-sided beatdown of Margarito when all was said and done.

Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KO) faces Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KO) on November 12 in Las Vegas, televised in the States by HBO pay-per-view.
