Manny Pacquiao is busting up his sparring partners as he prepares for Chris Algieri in their November 22 WBO welterweight showdown. Both Viktor Postol, the unbeaten Ukrainian light-welterweight, and Mike Jones have felt the force of ‘Pac Man’, who has not scored a stoppage victory since 2009.

Roach commented earlier this week that Manny Pacquiao is training “better than ever” ahead of the Macao outing and has now revealed to the South China Morning Post the extent of that form.

“Manny broke Postol’s nose three days ago,” Roach said. “But Postol’s okay. I train him. He’s a fighter, he’s a tough kid and he’s not going home,” Roach told the paper. “We still have three hard weeks of work in front of us. With three good sparring partners, it’s working out well. I have one more sparring partner coming over as a reserve, but I will use him as well..”
