MANILA--An international boxer familiar to the Filipinos will be part of Manny Pacquiao's training camp ahead of his megabucks fight against Floyd Mayweather.

J.M. Siasat of GMA News reported that Guillermo Rigondeaux, the boxer who gave Nonito Donaire his first loss after a long winning streak in 2013, will become Pacquiao's sparring partner citing sources familiar with the situation.

The 34-year-old former Olympic gold medalist, who has won all of his 15 professional fights so far with ten by stoppages, is said to have a fighting style similar to that of Mayweather.
