Freddie Roach Still Behind Pacquiao
Perhaps the man that is most behind Manny Pacquiao besides his wife and family is his trainer, Freddie Roach. Roach can only look back and laugh when he thinks about Manny’s last two losses because both are extremely unexpected. He never wants to see Manny get hurt and has always said that he would tell his fighter when it was time to call it quits, but they both insist that time has not come yet, and is still a while away. Roach believes that Manny will defeat Rios in dramatic fashion and be right back in the thick of things. Rios is sick and tired of everyone telling him that Manny will beat him, and he vows to shock the world. Anything can happen, and we will only know when we see Pacquiao vs Rios live.
