Manny Pacquiao mum on superfight, but speaks openly on coaching priorities

The fight everyone has been waiting to hear has no development yet as far as boxing icon Manny Pacquiao is concerned.

The Fighting Congressman from Sarangani Province refused to comment on the negotiations with Floyd Mayweather despite early claims that the Filipino pug had given his American rival until the end of the month to make a decision.

“Hintayin na lang natin yung announcement,” Pacquiao told media after the game.

Pacquiao returned to his dual function as playing coach of Kia Carnival against Barako Bull on Sunday, but didn’t see action. Instead, he was a picture of concentration giving instructions from the sidelines.

The Carnival have won one of four games so far in the ongoing PBA Commissioner’s Cup, but the feat was accomplished without Pacquiao, who was then busy judging the Ms. Universe pageant as well as negotiating for the fight everyone wants to see.

Against Barako Bull, Pacquiao suited up, but never went into the game.

“Kailangan mag-focus,” he said. “Kailangang tutok sa mga players sa laro pati sa training nila.”
The Carnival lost, 86-95, but not after giving up a good fight against surprise joint leader Barako Bull, who improved to 3-0 and forged a tie for the lead with Purefoods and Meralco.
