Pacquiao responds to Roach situation: I have not made my final decision

Over the weekend, news surfaced that eight-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao won’t be working with long-time Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach for his upcoming WBA Welterweight World Title match against champion Lucas Mathysse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this July. In a press statement, the Pacquiao camp named best friend Buboy Fernandes and Nonoy Neri as the trainers. Roach responded to the statement saying that he wishes his former ward well, but admitted that he was hurt by how the situation unfolded. Pacquiao and Roach have worked together for the last 15-plus years, and have 34 professional fights and seven world championships under their belt. Now, it seems as though the split isn’t as certain as was once thought…yet. In an Instagram post early Monday morning, Pacquiao clarified the situation surrounding him and Roach.   Contrary to statements which I personally did not make that are circulating in the media, I have not made my final decision who will be my head trainer for my July 14 fight with Matthysse. My advisor Mike Koncz has been in contact with Freddie’s people to keep them informed. I will make a final decision within the week. When that decision is made, Freddie will be the first one to be informed and then I will advise the media. #PacquiaoMatthysse A post shared by Manny Pacquiao (@mannypacquiao) on Apr 15, 2018 at 12:34pm PDT “Contrary to statements which I personally did not make that are circulating in the media, I have not made my final decision who will be my head trainer for my July 14 fight with Matthysse.” Pacquiao’s post, which shows him hitting the mitts with Roach read. “My advisor Mike Koncz has been in contact with Freddie’s people to keep them informed. I will make a final decision within the week.” It was Koncz that first revealed that things between Pacquiao and Roach weren't exactly peachy, saying in an interview with ESPN's Dan Rafael that the boxer-turned-senator took issue to some of the things that Roach said to the media following Pacquiao's loss to Jeff Horn in Australia back in 2017.  In Roach’s statement over the weekend, he revealed that he had been hurt by the fact that Pacquiao did not reach out to him personally to inform him of the supposed change. Pacquiao ends his post by addressing that statement. “When that decision is made, Freddie will be the first one to be informed and then I will advise the media.” Does this mean that Pacquiao and Roach are not going their separate ways after all?.....»»

Back to where it all started

  No Freddie Roach. No Bob Arum. No pay-per-view dollars. No glitzy Las Vegas neon lights. No hyped up opponent. All there is is a legend, closer to the end of his career than to the start.   Manny Pacquiao prepares for a fight that will dictate how the sun will continue to rise for the remainder of his career.   "This fight will determine my future," the Philippine senator has told media people during his preparation for the bout against Argentine Lucas Matthysse on July 15 in Kuala Lumpur.   But while the result will largely factor into Pacquiao's future schedule, the atmosphere surrounding his preparation smacks of nostalgia.

Double boxing event on SKY Sports Pay-Per-View this Sunday

Boxing fans are sure to be glued to their seats this Sunday, January 28 as SKY brings a boxing event featuring two world title bouts starting at approximately 10:30 AM.  Former interim WCB super lightweight champion Lucas Matthyse (38-4, 35 KO) and undefeated welterweight fighter Tewa Kiram (38-0, 28 KO) will vie for the vacant WBA welterweight title this Sunday. Matthyse is an experienced fighter at 35 years old, with wins over former world champions like Humberto Soto, Lamont Peterson and Ruslan Provodnikov. However, this will only be the second time he will fight at 147 lbs as the Argentine slugger moved up a division last year. This match is Kiram’s US debut, having fought mostly in his native of Thailand. The 25 year old is not only the unknown fighter in this card but also the underdog as he will face a powerful slugger. It is unsure whether he can fight at this level against a former champion. Meanwhile, WBA lightweight world champion Jorge Linares (43-3, 27 KO) will defend his title against Mercito Gesta at the same fighting event. Linares, who hails from Venezuela, is a three-division world champion who successfully defended his title from Luke Campbell last September 2017. He is very focused on this fight as he expects fights with bigger athletes, like Vasyl Lomachenko, to come after. On the other hand, Gesta has been training with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, the same coach to People’s Champ, Sen. Manny Pacquiao. The Cebu native has been thought of as the next Filipino boxingchamp and has won five of his last six matches, with two KO wins. Watch these exciting matches on Sunday, January 28, through SKY Sports Pay-Per-View for only P149. This is available to all One SKY, SKYcable, SKYdirect, subscribers. This is also available to SKYbroadband subscribers through SKY on Demand. Subscribers in Metro Manila, CAMANAVA, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna and Bulacan can watch it on channels 160 (SD) and 260 (HD).
