Manny, Floyd meet next week

The pair will hold a joint press conference on March 11 in Los Angeles and will not meet again until the final press conference at the MGM Grand in the days before the May 2 showdown.

Both fighters have begun training for the bout, with Pacquiao arriving in Los Angeles over the weekend from the Philippines. He will train at the Wild Card gym in Hollywood, while Mayweather trains in his own gym in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao will start his preparations without trainer Freddie Roach, who is away until next week as he prepares Zou Shiming’s for his first world title fight against??Amnat Ruenroeng in Macao on Saturday.

Roach admitted that Pacquiao???s training regime will take place away from the spotlight.

“I won’t tell you what the game plan is because that will be very silent,” he told the South China Morning Post.?????The whole Wildcard will be shut down and we will work out Manny’s best strategy and nobody will watch it.”
