The old saying in boxing goes that a fighter’s power is the last thing he ever loses.
Or for some — perhaps they never lose it at all.
Speed, timing and reflexes cannot be defeated when pit against father time but how hard someone hits appears to be in many instances to from the grace of God.
More times than not punchers are born, not made.
Manny Pacquiao has always had a big punch for his size as his many highlight reel stoppages and knockouts over the years illustrate.
Last time out against Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia in 2018 he chalked in his first stoppage win in over nine years to show he can still hit.
Speaking to Fight Hype YouTube (hat tip) Freddie Roach has revealed the extent of how hard Pacquiao is hitting ahead of his latest fight against Adrien Broner this month:
Pacquiao takes on Broner for the WBA welterweight title on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada live on Showtime pay per view in the US and live on ITV 4 free view in the UK.
