Manny Pacquiao will arrive in Los Angeles tonight to begin the heavy lifting part of his training camp for his December 8 fight with Juan Manuel Marquez, reports, which was the expected date for Pacquiao to hit the U.S., after he delayed an earlier-than-usual arrival a couple of weeks ago to stay in the Philippines.

Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO) has been working out at home with Buboy Fernandez, but now will get to work with head trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card, his home base of boxing operations. There's plenty of time for him to get in a successful camp, and the delay of his arrival in the States may have annoyed Bob Arum or others on his team, but in the end it probably won't change much of anything.

But since every breath Manny takes is news, then certainly every changing of his mind about how long he'd spend in the States with Roach was news. That's Manny mania for you. It's still going very strong.
