TAIPEI -- Manny Pacquiao arrived at the Venetian Macao in Macau, China, on Monday, along with promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank, for his bout on Saturday at CotaiArena with Brandon Rios.

Yahoo Sports is en route. I'm in an airport lounge in Taipei now and will arrive later today, where I will get to see Pacquiao work out.

I ran into Pacquiao's cut man, the former Trainer of the Year, Miguel Diaz, on the flight from Las Vegas. Diaz has worked for Pacquiao since Pacquiao's victory over Oscar De La Hoya in 2008.

I'll have full coverage of all the workouts, press conferences and activities going on in Macau all week.

Stay tuned for complete coverage, as well as some of the sights and sounds of Macau.
