Looked serious to me since it was only a week from the fight. Pac continued his workout, wincing 'n squeezing his calf, but Team Pac assured me it was "nothing" 'n he'd be 100%
In retrospect, it seems more wishful thinking than medical DX
WOW! Even though you're practically part of team Pacquiao, I would'nt expect you JG to throw an exuse out like that for Pacquiao.
Pacquiao winced doing serious and furious squat jumps, what a shocker.
Most every athlete, especially ones with the mileage of both Pacquiao and Marquez will have lingering injuries heading into a fight.
So Pacquiao hyperextended his knee but he's holding his calf?
That one's hard to take to the bank.
When one does these serious types of squats, leg cramps are actually common. There's a reason why fighters ease up their training the week before a fight. Resting and staying away from cramping muscle injuries is part of that reason.
