Fight Camp 360 - Pacquiao vs. Mosley, episode I

We won't compare Fight Camp 360 to HBO's 24/7. Two different shows with slightly different formats. They both achieve the same thing, publicity for the fight.

It is, however, a major plus for the Pacquiao-Mosley fight and the sport of boxing that CBS is airing Fight Camp 360.

Scenic View: The establishing shots of Baguio City were beautiful. And so were the little girls looking over Manny Pacquiao's shoulder in the opening. The foutnain scene outside the Beverly Hills Hotel was also excellent.

Best Spoken Line,  Antonio Leonard, Mosley's advisor: "Manny dont know how to stay away. You hit Manny, Manny wants to fight. Manny ain't gonna be running. That's what you love."

Best Spoken Line, Bob Arum: "Manny Pacquiao is the best boxer that I've ever seen." You can't call him a liar because the man is entitled to his opinion. But he promoted Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvin Hagler. Just not sure Bob isn't getting carried away with the hype.

Best Spoken Line, Shane Mosley: "I know you want to knock me out, it's OK, though, I want to know you out too."

That is some home Pacquiao has in Los Angeles.

Nice face time for Fred "TooFred" Sternburg, friend of nearly all in boxing.

Pacquiao Time isn't exclusive to just Manny Pacquiao. 99.9 percent of fighters are late.

A new hairdo for each fighter. This corner, however was extremely relieved to hear Pac Man's answer when a fan asked if Manny styled his hair after Justin Bieber. "Bruce Lee is my idol," he said.

Good to see nothing changes. For Pacquiao, it's camp chaos.

Loved that Manny Pacquiao walked through Penn Station -- just like all of us.

Loved the footage of Manny Pacquiao in his 7th pro fight. He looked like a pipe-cleaner with gloves on.

That fender bender in Washington D.C., had to be because of Pacquiao. "Let's get going before we get blamed for this."

Manny meets President Obama. Shane gets face time with Al Sharpton.

They fight May 7, on Showtime pay-per-view

The next episode of Fight Camp 360 airs on Saturday, Arpil 16 on Showtime.
