HOLLYWOOD—Manny Pacquiao is reaching peak form for his March 13 defense of the World Boxing Organization welterweight crown against Ghanaian Joshua Clottey.

This was what Canadian Rob Peters confidently told Filipino sportswriters, who caught up with him at Nat’s Thai restaurant near the Wild Card gym.

Peters, Pacquiao’s chief of security, added that the pound-for-pound king again toyed with his sparmates in a 10-round afternoon session held behind closed doors under the watchful eyes of master trainer Freddie Roach.

“The more guys they put on him, the more guys he beat up,” said Peters, citing Pacquiao’s sparring Tuesday with Raymund Beltrand and David Rodela and light welterweight prospect Jamie Kavanagh of Dublin, Ireland.

According to Peters, the 19-year-old Kavanagh, who compiled a 168-win, 12-loss record in a stellar amateur career highlighted by a silver-medal effort in last year’s AIBA World Youth Championships, became too overeager and “came in a little too brave.”

The observation of Peters jibed with comments from boxing pundits who’ve seen Pacquiao honing up his skills for the March 13 duel with Clottey at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
