On Wednesday, Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao was up and moving with his team for a morning run in Los Angeles along with a Jack Russel Terrier who also paced with Pacman's entourage.

The early-morning exercise is considered to be part of Pacquiao's preparation and conditioning for his May 2 bout against undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. set to happen at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Daily Mail said Pacquiao and his running mates started pounding the streets as early as 5:30 a.m. to start day 3 of training. The Filipino champion is said to have only about eight weeks to reach the 147-lb limit for the welterweight division.

Pacman's training reportedly started back at his home country, the Philippines, before he flew to Los Angeles over the weekend. But there is one major person missing from Team Pacquiao and that is coach Freddie Roach who is currently in Macau to be with Zou Shiming bidding to win the flyweight title.

"Manny told me I should be with Zou because he knows how important this fight is for him. The thing is, Manny is that type of guy. He cares about other people. He knows Shiming has a better chance to win if I'm there with him," Roach was quoted by Daily Mail as saying.

To take Roach's place, assistant trainer Marvin Samodio and Pacquiao's childhood friend Buboy Fernandez. The Filipino champ has reportedly been doing some warm up exercises with his team for the past days.

On his Instagram page, Pacquiao has been posting videos of his training sessions which highlighted his speed, strength and stamina.

A report by Philippine local TV news network GMA said that Pacquiao is just in the "light phase" of his training but he has already busted Fernandez's lip after an uppercut during the second day of training.

"It's normal for us. He hugged me after that and told me not to move because he knew it was a strong blow," added Fernandez who handles the mitt sessions with Pacman.

The boxing champ's best friend also told GMA that his nose usually takes all the punishment when he trains with Pacquiao.

On the other hand, Mayweather is said to be working with his father and uncle for his training sessions, a separate Daily Mail report said. It added that he has also hired the services of former foe DeMarcus Corley as sparring partner.

The fight has been planned and awaited by fans since 2009 but no concrete plans ever happened until late last year when Mayweather finally announced the basic details of the fight. The two boxers are set to look eye to eye next week in a press conference in Los Angeles.

This is considered one of the greatest and richest fights in boxing history with tickets expected to be sold starting at $1,000 and ringside tickets pegged at $5,000.
