WATCH: Manny Pacquiao focused in training ahead of the big fight

Manny Pacquiao is set to square off with Floyd Mayweather in a bout that has been billed as the fight of he century.

And the Pac-man clearly has his eye on the prize, if Nike's recent documentary on him is anything to go by.

During the nearly three-minute-long video, the Filipino fighter gave some insight into his mental state as he prepares for his showdown on Sunday morning (Singapore time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

"Preparing physically, spiritually and mentally - it will assure victory," said Pacquiao.

"When you're focused, you don't have to worry about, 'Oh, what am I gonna do? Maybe I'm not ready,' but you have peace of mind and you're ready to fight.

"If you're not well-prepared for the fight, only your mind can think about it but your body can't respond.

"You need to go through the hard work before you get the crown."

Even though he's 36, Pacquiao still showed his intensity in training - whether it is conditioning exercises or sparring.

Mayweather, you've been warned.
