After Floyd Mayweather Jr.
made a bold claim that he will knock-out Manny Pacquiao, Freddie Roach immediately fired back and said the American boxer will be the one going down the canvass.
Also, Pacquiao shared how he can avoid another knock-out loss.
According to GMA Network , Freddie Roach can see from now how Manny will be able to score a KO victory against Mayweather.
“I think Manny will win by knockout,” Roach said.
“I don’t have a round but the thing is, we have to break him down first and I think in the later rounds, I believe Manny will knock him out,” he added.
He was also asked if there is a possibility of a rematch.
Unfortunately, it is indicated in the Mayweather vs.
Pacquiao contract that it is a one-time deal.
“There’s no rematch clause but this fight’s so big that I think if it goes like I think it will and they both start early and they both go for the knockout early because Floyd’s legs are nearly gone,” said Roach.
“I know he’s gonna start quick and we’re gonna start quick also.
I think the fans will demand a rematch, and I would love a rematch because I like making money, so it’s pretty good.” Meanwhile, Manny Pacquiao shared how he needs to become patient to avoid getting knocked-out.
“I got over anxious for the knockout when I had Marquez hurt…
I had Marquez badly hurt and on the ropes,” said Pacquiao in Boxing Scene .
“When I heard the 10-second warning to end the round I thought I could finish him off with one last barrage of punches.
I made a misstep and Marquez caught me with a perfect right counterpunch.
He was the wrong man to make that kind of mistake against,” he added.
Pacquiao said that it made him a better fighter which was seen in his fight against Chris Algieri.
“In my last fight against Algieri, I had six knockdowns and he was a runner.
I think I have become a better fighter since my last loss,” he said.
