Manny Pacquiao during workout at Pop-up Gym in the Le Meridien Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: “I am ready. I have never predicted the outcome of any of my fights but this training camp is special for many reasons. I am motivated. I am happy. I am hungry. I am excited to show the world a new Manny Pacquiao on July 15 (July 14 in the US) at the Axiata Arena here in Kuala Lumpur.”

“Argentina has been my (football) team since before…” This, after he was asked which team he was rooting for in the World Cup.

“I have always been a boxer. Boxing has been my country’s (Philippines) source of pride and my humble contribution to my fellowmen. When I won one world title after another until we had 10 world titles in eight divisions, it felt like we have won the World Cup many times over.”
