Manny Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao is expected to be in the US on March 2 for some serious training

Getting ready for the clash of the century against Floyd Mayweather at MGM Grand Las Vegas on 2 May, Manny Pacquiao was expected to travel to the US on 8 March to start some serious training.

But the plan seems to have undergone some changes as the Filipino is more than eager to come ahead of his planned schedule. It is the US part of his training, which is expected to be a very serious one at Freddie Roach's Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California.

After the mega fight was given the green light, boxing fans all around the world have been eagerly waiting for the fight. 

"Manny called me and said it's been so crazy in the Philippines that he is going to come over here early and probably start at Wild Card on March 2," Roach told

"Having him early is really nice for me. We'll have Justin Fortune doing strength work with him, and then we'll begin the boxing part and start sparring."

But Roach would not be able to train Pacquiao instantly, as he has some commitments. He is expected to travel to Macau, where he will be alongside China's Zou Shiming who will take on Thailand's Amnat Ruenroeng for the flyweight world title on 7 March.

Pacquaio has no issues with it as the Filipino himself suggested Roach to be with Zou, as the trainer was ready to be alongside the Filipino in California and make alternate arrangements for Shimming.

Roach said, "Manny told me I should be with Zou because he knows how important this fight is for him."

Roach is already getting ready to train the Filipino and is confident of beating the American as well. Roach has already watched tapes of their fights, so as to come up with a concrete strategy.

The fight between the two is one of the most anticipated bouts in boxing history. They were expected to fight in 2010 as well, but it did not materialise. 

Mayweather holds an unbeaten record in his professional career, having won all 47 bouts, 26 of them via knock outs, while Pacquiao has won 57 of his 64 bouts with 38 knock outs.

Can Manny Pacquiao be the first person to defeat Floyd Mayweather? Only time will tell.
