WBC Lightweight Champion Manny Pacquiao is now excited to face on his opponent Oscar Dela Hoya on December 6, fight dubbed as "The Dream Match" and stressed that World Boxing Council issue would not affect his intense preparation.

Pacquiao is now approaching on the final phase of his preparation under the watchful eyes of his trainer Freddie Roach, conditioning chief and nutritionist Alex Ariza, with less than a month to go before we will hear Michael Buffer's famous phrase "Let's Get Ready to Rumble!!”

And same as usual, the great camp of the Pacman is happy and content the way the Filipino boxer developed with everyday’s exchange of thoughts ideas and tactics leading to the Christmas boxing extravaganza.

Pacquiao has added the rounds of sparring with hired talents weighing 160 pounds and as tall as Oscar De la Hoya, which Roach claimed would help his ward to develop a strategy that would deal with Oscar come fight night.

An insider told me that Manny is so focused on his training and it seems that he is not bothered with the recent fracas with Jose Sulaiman's WBC and the MP camp with regards to alleged unsettled account.

"The way i see, Pacman is now on the thick of his preparation and he continued to amaze us with his devotion in the training" an insider told me who refused to discuss further details on Pacquiao's fight plan.

Pacquiao will definitely unleash his sentiments on the ring come fight night! And sad to say Oscar will going taste it...I just hope it should be the ungentlemanly Don Jose Sulaiman.
