Pacquiao Adds Donaire Sr To Team

Manny Pacquiao has added Nonito Donaire Sr. to his team while he prepares for his July 15th battle against Lucas Matthysse.

A week following the open of his training camp Pacquiao has tasked Donaire to help with a tactical plan against the reigning WBA “regular” welterweight champion, Matthysse.

“Donaire will serve as one of the assistant coaches,” said Pacquiao, who did two trial rounds with the mitts with the father of former world champion Nonito Donaire Jr.

So far, so good. I am happy with my current team,” said Pacquiao, who is fighting for the first time since his decision loss to Jeff Horn in Brisbane, Australia.

Long time friend and confidant Buboy Fernandez will be replacing Freddie Roach, as Pacquiao’s head trainer, with Raides “Nonoy” Neri as the assistant.
