Manny Pacquiao insists he will be facing an improved Timothy Bradley when they meet in their rubber match on April 9.
Pacquiao will bow out of the sport after facing Bradley for a third time having won one and lost one against the American.
The Filipino flew into Los Angeles ahead of a press conference on Wednesday but will return to his homeland to continue training.
By the time Pacquiao and Bradley touch gloves in Las Vegas, the former will have been out of action for almost a year having had shoulder surgery following his defeat by Floyd Mayweather last May.
‘I’m excited for this next training camp because I’ve been resting for almost one year,’ he said. ‘The shoulder is good. I’m feeling 100 per cent better.
‘I’m looking forward for more action. We know that Bradley improved a lot since our last fight. He improved a lot this time.’
Although Pacquiao lost to Bradley in 2012, the split-decision verdict was widely condemned and the 37-year-old avenged the loss two years later.
Pacquiao opted to face Bradley again over fights with Amir Khan and rising star Terence Crawford.
