Pacquiao KOs sparmate on first sparring day

In an event that may send warning signals to Ricky Hatton’s camp, Manny Pacquiao displayed deadly form in his first day of sparring by knocking down one of his sparmates.
According to a report by philboxing.com’s Dr. Ed de la Vega, Pacquiao had sparmate Art Hovhannesyan down on all fours in just the second round.

Those close to the action said the hapless Hovhannesyan, an undefeated lightweight sporting a record of 7-0-1, 2 KOs, also suffered a one-inch cut in the eyelid. The gash was reportedly caused by a Pacquiao left hook.
