Being a nutritionist gives you an advantage on how to prepare your body for a 12 round fight and 12 weeks of training. Describe your diet, exercising habits and hours of sleep.

“I average between 8-9 hours a sleep a night/day between naps. I generally eat between 5-7 times a day, around 3500 calories during training camp. I eat lots of fresh fruits and colorful veggies to help with recovery.”

“I also eat a lot of complex grains and no processed foods. I prepare and cook about 90% of my own food and meals.”

“I train 6 days a week. Most days I train twice a day. I do strength and conditioning twice a week, cardio four times a week and boxing five days a week. With my cardio I do more sprint work then distance work, but I alternate between the two.”

“I also get weekly massages for recovery, once a week and take an ice bath after every sparring session, which is not fun, but it is necessary.”

“I take a very scientific and calculated approach to everything I do when in training leading up to the fight and in the ring on fight night. Manny said that I will be the most conditioned and smartest fighter that he will ever face. He is right.”

“24/7 Pacquiao/Algieri” premieres Saturday, Nov. 8 at 1:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on HBO immediately following the live World Championship Boxing event from Atlantic City.

Pacquiao vs. Algieri happens Saturday, November 22 live on pay-per-view beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Boksing is not about talking that talk. It is about walking the walk. Something C-Al has yet to do. He has been fed cadavers, marshmallows, tomato cans, a mild-warm body, a warm body and a hot one, who he got a gift over.

C-Al doesn't have a clue what is coming. He is going to be like a deer caught in headlights. And then all a sudden: KaBOOM! Lights out. Holla!

Not the first guy to step in the ring with Pacquiao to be at least talking like he is confident, and he won't be the first, or last, to say after the fight he lost to an all time great !
