Any great athlete will tell you that visualisation is key to success.
With Manny Pacquiao’s megafight against pound-for-pound king, Floyd Mayweather, just two weeks away, “Pacman” is taking the art of visualisation to a whole new level.
Robert Shapiro – yes, that Robert Shapiro – recently gave Pacquiao a speed bag with Mayweather’s face emblazoned on the front.
The bag is detailed and resembles Mayweather with striking similarity.
No word on where Shapiro got the bag, or who made it, but it is hanging inside Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. The gift was on display for last Wednesday’s media day as Pacquiao continues preparing for the May 2 showdown in Las Vegas.
Shapiro or Team Pacquiao should look into mass-producing that. After all, Pacquiao can’t be the only one wanting to pop Mayweather.
