LOS ANGELES – At the end of six bruising rounds atop the ring, Armenian Art Simonyan playfully planted a kick on Manny Pacquiao’s behind. It was
the only time he had the upperhand on the Filipino pug.
Stepping up his preparation for a May 8 bout against world featherweight king Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao knocked down the undefeated Armenian in
the first round of a sparring session at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card gym in Hollywood.
A few days after cracking the rib of another Armenian fighter, Kahren Harutyunyan, in training, the 25-year old GenSan southpaw sent Simonyan to the
canvas with a left straight even before fans who had come to watch him at the gym could settle in their places.
