Manny Pacquiao May Train in Canada

Filipino fans of boxing champ, Manny Pacquio, may have a chance to finally meet him in person ahead of Pacquiao-Cotto showdown in November. According to this report, Team Pacquio considers Canada to be Manny Pacquiao's training camp because of the large number of Filipinos residing there, among other reasons.

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum is luring Manny Pacquiao to the Bahamas for the first half of his training camp for the November 14 duel with Miguel Cotto but the Filipino fighter might end up going to Canada, Mexico — or even the Philippines.[Source]

Team Pacquiao is particularly considering Vancouver because it is near the US. Vancouver will also host the 2010 Winter Olympics.
