Pacquiao hurt his left eye in his first sparring session with Maduma, compelling head trainer Freddie Roach to shelf him for two days.

Roach, who has been Pacquiao’s boxing coach since his title-winning performance against Lehlo Ledwaba in June 2001, admitted that he is not impressed with his pupil’s performance in training camp as he having difficulties setting a higher frequency of intensity.

After missing two days of training due to an eye injury, Pacquiao returned to the gym and continued his intense workout on Monday, February 29 as he spent several rounds on the punch mitts with Roach and the double-end bag.

Both Pacquiao and Roach are set to leave the Philippines on or before March 15 to wrap up the preparation at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles, California. –
