HOLLYWOOD--Fighters, especially veterans of 55 fights like Manny Pacquiao, often go into battle with bumps and bruises, especially with sore or tender hands.

“That's nothing,” Coach Freddie Roach said the other day, speaking generally about tender mitts or other ailments. “These things are what we call occupational hazards.”

Not to exaggerate here, Manny won't be reaching for the Floyd Mayweather favorite painkiller, xylocaine, but he did have a slightly swollen right hand last weekend. By Tuesday and Wednesday, though, the hand looked normal.

Pacman also suffered a slight case of shin splints recently, noticing them while doing his morning roadwork at scenic Griffith Park, LA's equivalent of New York's Central Park.

“That's just from overuse,” a source told me, “and the discomfort went away when Manny eased off a little bit.”...

Figured it might be time for this roving reporter to rove on when I heard Pacquiao conclude a workout with a passable vocal impression of actor Mel Gibson as William Wallace in the stirring "Braveheart." Coach Roach said his Scottish boxer, Craig McEwan, schooled Manny on the guttural Scottish "burr."...

I mean, next thing you know, Manny will be imitating Sammy Davis Jr. doing his absolutely horrible version of "Shaft." Come to think of it, Manny would probably choose the sugary "Candyman."...

While we sat at Nat's with him, Packy enjoyed one of conditioning guru Alex Ariza's special vitamin loaded drinks with his food.

I would have asked for one but I was afraid it would render me bulletproof like the Pinoy soldiers from, what was it Roger Mayweather, something like 500 years ago. Who wants to be impervious to bullets, anyway?...

Scottish boxer Craig McEwan taught Pacman the Scottish "burr" Mel Gibson spoke with in "Braveheart" (

Pacman's formal education may not be the deepest but he doesn't miss a trick. His quick impression of Cowboys owner and billionaire Jerry Jones?

“I like him, he is a down to earth type of guy,” Pacquiao said.

Takes one to know one, I guess...

Pacmom, known more formally as Nanay Ayling Dionesia, is on the scene and was chowing down at Nat's Wednesday next to Manny's boxing brother, Bobby.

Which reminds me that Pacmom never did reply to my heartfelt marriage proposal.

I would be such a great father in law for Pacman, right?

According to alluring Madam Auring, it just isn't in the cards. Guess I will move on with my crushed affections and all...

TV reporter to Bob Arum: "What do you think of (welterweight hopeful from Mexico) Saul Alvarez?"

Arum: "Don't know him, never heard him, don't know anything about him."

TV reporter: "How do you think he would do against Manny Pacquiao?"

I heard it with my own ears, folks, I really did...

Not to say the Wild Card's neighborhood is funky but the Yashinoya fast food joint has this sign prominently displayed: "No $100 bills after 10 p.m."...Who pays three or four bucks for rice and chicken or beef and then whips out a C note, anyway?...
