Pacquiao: Preparation pushes through, assures fans his ankle is fine despite reported injury

Filipino boxing icon, Manny Pacquiao posted on his column "Kumbinasyon" on that after a doctor's check up and medication on his ankle he can now run and continue his training for the fight. 

"Matapos ang pagsusuri at pag-gamot ng aking doktor ay nakakatakbo na ako ngayon at naipagpatuloy ko na rin ang pag-train para sa laban"

According to him, there were a lot of fans that expressed concern about the reported injury. Pacquiao said that fans should not worry because there is nothing serious about the injury.

"Nakapaglaro na nga uli ako ng basketball dito sa Gensan" (I even played again basketball here in Gensan).

Despite the injury that Pacquiao sustained from playing basketball, it seems it is difficult for him to refrain from playing. Pacquiao has tremendous passion also for basketball. But I think this is time for him to forget playing basketball for sometime and focus more in his boxing training. If Pacquiao was injured earlier, it's more likely that he will be injured again.

Pacquaio's fight against the younger Brandon Rios is drawing near. And Pacquiao could not afford to have another injury for the same reason or else it will be hard for him to train while nursing an injury.

Pacquiao also wrote that he is inspired to bring back the joy to his countryman that were very proud to the world in every win he registers.

"Inspirado po ako na maibalik ko ang dating saya ng aking mga kababayan na taas-noo na humaharap sa mundo sa bawat panalo na ating naitala."

Do you think that playing basketball helps Pacquaio to improve stamina or just risking himself for injury? Share your thoughts and leave a comment below.
