Bobby Pacquiao is Working Hard for His Upcoming Bout

There has been so much buzz about Manny Pacquiao's congressional bid that almost no attention has been given to his brother's upcoming bout. Bobby Pacquiao has a record of 27-12-3 with 12 knockouts while Soto's record is 41-5-2 with 25 KO's. He is coming off a third round TKO win against Humberto Toledo last February 22.

According to journalist Winchell Campos, Bobby Pacquiao who faces WBC super featherweight No. 2 contender Humberto Soto, is ”looking good.” Soto won a title eliminator over Ivan Valle last August 12. Campos added that, Bobby was “working harder than ever” in preparation for his June 9 showdown with Soto at New York’s famed Madison Square Garden. Of course, they were disappointed over Manny’s defeat in the congressional elections. Bobby is currently training under celebrated two-time “Trainer of the Year” Freddie Roach and has reportedly “changed his mental outlook” for the better.

Bobby Pacquiao
is expected to give Soto who is handled by Top Rank promoter Bob Arum some problems as he has looked good in sparring. Soto is among four possible opponents of Manny Pacquiao that are being considered by Bob Arum. However, he first needs to overcome the challenge posed by the younger Pacquiao.
