NANINIWALA si trainer Robert Garcia na iba nang Manny Pacquiao ang makakaharap ng kanyang iniensayong si Brandon Rios kumpara noong limang taon na ang nakararaan.
Ang paghahambing ay ipinahayag sa Media ni Garcia na tumayong trainer ni Antonio Margarito noong Nov. 23 sa Macau nang bugbugin ni Pacman si Margarito para mapanalunan ang WBC junior middleweight.
At pagkatapos ng labang iyon ay sumemplang sa 2-2 ang karta ng Pambansang Kamao na napuntusan ni Tim Bradley noong June 2012 at humiga sa lona nang patulugin siya ni Juan Manuel Marquez noong Disyembre.
“There’s a lot of things that we’ve seen in Pacquiao’s past three or four fights,” pahayag ni Garcia, sa RingTV.com sa Las Vegas. “I don’t see the same Pacquiao of five years ago. I know that a lot of people will agree with me, but we still need to prepare for that scary Pacquiao.
“Margarito had to come down in weight, which really, really hurt him, to get to that catchweight. He had gotten destroyed in his previous fight against Shane Mosley. That was a big issue. The age. Brandon’s younger than Margarito, which was three years ago. Since then, Pacquiao has lost to Bradley and gotten knocked out by Marquez. So, those are things that we’ve got to take advantage of.”
