Two-time world champion Gerry Peñalosa has a vision of what’s going to happen to Floyd Mayweather on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“I see Floyd being rescued by the referee,” said Peñalosa yesterday at the MP Tower Gym owned by Manny Pacquiao, who didn’t make it for training as he was caught in a monstrous traffic jam.
To make up for it, Pacquiao chose to do some running at Forbes Park.
Still, Peñalosa believes it will be “a tactical fight” for the two superstars.
Peñalosa pointed out that adjustments will have to be made in-between rounds.
Pacquiao had actually worked out a sweat on Thursday under the glare of TV cameras, media and fans and was supposed to take the spotlight once more as TV crews from different networks, foreign mediamen and sportswriters anxiously waited for the arrival of the boxing star.
A call made by Pacquiao adviser Mike Koncz to training assistant Buboy Fernandez ended all the speculations.
It was already 4:30 pm and the collection of mediamen that gathered as early as 12 noon began to scatter from all directions.
“Manny had to turn back because of the heavy traffic,” said Fernandez, who eventually stole the thunder from Pacquiao as he was mobbed for interviews.
