MANILA, Philippines - Manny Pacquiao on Tuesday said he has Antonio Margarito all figured out. Speaking to mediamen during his second day of training for the November 13 showdown with Antonio Margarito, Pacquiao demonstrated how he would deal with the rangy 5-foot-11 Mexican puncher when they collide at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. ''Ganito lang 'yan,'' Pacquiao said, throwing rapid-fire punches in the air while making use of his famed footwork at the spacious Elorde Gym on Del Monte Ave. in Quezon City. The three scribes put up a wide grin as he demonstrated how he would tackle Margarito, known for his aggressiveness and frightening power. Pacquiao actually arrived wearing a pristine-white short-sleeved shirt and black trousers and he did not waste time changing to his training gear as training assistants Buboy and Roger Fernandez and aide Jojo Sta. Teresa look on at the sidelines. Johnny Elorde, the son of the late Flash Elorde, who operates the well-equipped gym could not hide his amazement each time he sees Pacquiao work out a sweat. ''Manny doesn't allow himself to bloat when he has no fight scheduled,'' said Elorde, who was also on hand when Pacquiao showed up unannounced at his gym on Monday afternoon. Pacquiao plans to report to the Elorde Gym until next week and it looks like his training camp in Baguio won't start until the end of next week. Trainer Freddie Roach is arriving this weekend to reunite with Pacquiao and conditioning coach Alex Ariza, who planed in Monday morning but was still resting and was not around when the 31-year-old pound-for-pound king trained. When you'd think Pacquiao would just head back to his house in Sta. Rosa to rest his muscles, the fighter went to the Batasang Pambansa to fulfill his duties as Sarangani congressman.
