pac44By Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach feels confident that the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight will be taking place next May. Why does Roach feel this way? Roach thinks that Mayweather’s recent talk of the Pacquiao fight in the media is a clear sign that he’s interested in the fight.

“When you see Mayweather talking on TV, that means something to me because he never goes on TV to talk about a fight. That’s the first time I’ve ever seen him do that,” Roach said via Steve Kim at UCN. Read the rest of this entry »

smith7777By Scott Gilfoid: Sky Sports commentator Johnny Nelson thinks that #4 WBO Paul Smith (35-4, 20 KOs) has a real chance of pulling off an upset this Saturday night against the big-hitting WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (41-4, 28 KOs) in their fight on February 21st at the O2 World Arena, Kreuzberg, in Berlin, Germany.

title Roach has changed game plan for Pacquiao in Mayweather fight

roachBy Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach says that both Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao have both aged in the last five years, and because of that he can’t use the same game plan that he would have had for Mayweather if the two guys had faced each other back in 2009.

In the past, Roach thought that the best way for Pacquiao to beat Mayweather was to overwhelm him with punches and to put a lot of constant pressure on him. Read the rest of this entry »
