Manny going just fine.

Manny Pacquiao is picking up more speed and more intensity in his training for the Nov. 14 battle with Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico. “Manny’s improving each passing day,” after watching the lethal-hitting Filipino lefty rack up his 24th round of sparring on Thursday at the Shape Up Gym in Baguio City. “It was another very good day of sparring,” said the 49-year-old Roach, who has been calling the shots in Pacquiao’s corner since mid-2001. For the third straight sparring day, Pacquiao logged three rounds each with undefeated super-welterweight Shawn Porter and super-lightweight Urbano Antillon, something that brought a smile to Roach’s usually stoic face.
