Failed phone system ends Q&A with Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao got two words in before a conference call about his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. was abruptly cancelled Monday. A spokesman blamed technical difficulties for the cancellation, partly due to the large number of writers and broadcasters on the call. “There were so many calls the system blew,” Top Rank spokesman Lee Samuels said. Pacquiao was on the call from Los Angeles for what was supposed to be his last question-and-answer session before he arrives in Las Vegas next week for the May 2 fight. But the only question he answered was about how training camp was going, to which Pacquiao responded “very good.” – AP
