You Can Train Like Manny Pacquiao
After “retiring” in April, Manny Pacquiao is returning to the boxing ring on November 5—and Title Boxing Club wants you to get as close to the action as possible.
From October 31 through November 5, Title’s Newbury Street and North Station gyms are hosting “Train Like Pacquiao” personal training sessions. The lessons will implement mitt work and exercises used by the boxer’s actual trainer, Dedham’s Freddie Roach.
Roach, Pacquiao’s trainer of more than a decade and a former professional boxer himself, has coached quite a few champion athletes, including Mike Tyson. He now owns a boxing gym in California, so Title’s sessions are your chance to learn his technique on the East Coast.
Whatever your thoughts on Pacquiao’s questionable public commentary, it’s hard to deny his skill in the ring. Title’s 30-minute sessions will set you back $60, but they may just pass some of that dominance down to you.
$60, 10/31-11/5. Title Boxing Club, 338 Newbury St., Boston, and 226 Causeway St., Boston, titleboxingclub.com. Schedule sessions by emailing TITLENewburySt@gmail.com or calling 617-426-9464.
