Unlike Pacquiao, he was still terribly over the limit as bared in the latest video from his training camp in Florida.During his last birthday celebration, Pacquiao, 40, declared he has been feeling young and vigorous as 25.He also vowed to show against Broner the unseen best in his arsenal.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He did not mention specifics, although there were strict orders during earlier training at the Elorde Gym for guests and media to refrain from recording the proceedings.The order, it would be noted, came at a point when his handlers were working to perfect sharp, snappy blows clearly intended for the opponent’s body.Meanwhile, Broner’s chief handler, Kevin Cunningham, said they plan to jam Pacquiao’s fighting rhythm and zero in on his predictable adjustments.It goes without saying that Pacquiao, with that declaration from the opposing camp, can only be expected to come up with a full-proof weaponry, something like a bag of explosives, killer blasts to the body.These new killer blows could only be expected to flash and dig like phantom daggers, thrown from incredible points and angles.Broner better be ready with iron-clad defense of his body.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college View commentslast_img read more

Klopp urges Salah to ‘be relaxed’ after slow start

first_imgMohamed Salah just needs to relax, according to Liverpool manager Jugen Klopp. The Egyptian, who eclipsed 40 goals for the Reds last season, is off to something of a slow start this term, having scored just three times in nine outings so far. Salah struggled in the club’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the weekend as well, missing a number of key chances as his side were held to a draw that saw them drop into a tie atop the Premier League table with last season’s champions Manchester City.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram?

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! But Klopp doesn’t believe there is anything wrong with his star man and believes he just needs to put aside any pressure to get back to his best. “If you play tennis and your forehand is good and the next day your forehand is not there you think, ‘What is it?’ That’s how sport works,” said Klopp.“It is about your confidence. His game is really good. His last game was really good – he was in the positions but then the last two balls were not too cool. That happens. He lost balls in those situations last year. “How do you deal with it? Be relaxed, completely relaxed, because there is no need for anything else. Completely relaxed. The quality is there and so everything is fine.”While Klopp was not willing to speak on what he’s said to Salah ahead of Wednesday’s trip to face Napoli in the Champions League, he believes there is no need to over manage a player in what he considers a “normal situation.” “There are not big talks necessary, just a completely normal situation,” Klopp said. “Even Ian Rush didn’t score 40 goals in 10 seasons, season after season. That’s not how it works.“You have to be a proper threat. As an offensive player you have to work hard. At the end of season it depends how much success we have as a team if it is successful or not. There is no personal success possible. All awards are for everyone. We do what we do best.“So in these situations going through them there is no advice, you can not give it, because the experience they make themselves. They know. ‘I didn’t score, I didn’t score, so next time I pass.’ But it is about judging the situation again.”Despite Salah’s struggles, Liverpool are off to a flying start having won six of seven to open league play and kicking off their Champions League campaign with a 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain.  Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more
