Video Hype: Footage of Manny Pacquiao's Final Workout

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's some footage from Manny Pacquiao's final workout at the Top Rank gym in Las Vegas, cameras all around him and a brief appearance by Shawn Porter, not to mention a quick plug for BJ Penn. I still don't understand grown men desiring other grown men to write their name on something for them.

Pacquiao's training has by all accounts gone exceptionally well this time around, and he does indeed look really sharp, even just in what is basically a routine few seconds for him bouncing around with Freddie, partially just for the cameras. I do hope -- and do assume -- that they've focused on his movement this fight. Say what you will about Shane Mosley's age (and I've said it and believe the same things), but Mosley still isn't someone you want to stand in front of. There's no reason for Manny to do that thing he keeps doing recently where he needlessly tests his opponent's power. Getting hit by Shane Mosley hurts. He's made that abundantly clear over the last 18 years, at every weight he's fought.
