The Manny Pacquiao engine is really starting to rev up. The Filipino ring icon was all business in sparring Thursday at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood and bloodied the mouth and nose of Hastings Bwalya in the second round.
Bwalya, who sports a 7-0 record with five knockouts, bore the brunt of the Pacquiao offensive and got peppered with solid body blows and uppercuts.
Pacquiao then sparred with Rey Beltran for four more rounds and did two more rounds with Bwalya.
Pacquiao is in the second phase of his training for his looming bout with Mexican archnemesis Juan Manuel Marquez.
The two will square off November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao had earlier set up camp in Baguio City, where he revealed he is seriously preparing for the third bout against an opponent who gave him a difficult time in their two previous matches.
