Pacquiao vs Mayweather Fight Is Dead As Roach Announces Filipino Boxer’s Step Down To Junior Welterweight Division After Nov 22 Fight vs Algieri

By Vittorio Hernandez | October 17, 2014 10:40 AM EST


The Pacquiao-Mayweather dream match is dead. Besides the denial from Floyd Mayweather Jr, who even threatened to remove his father from the Money Team for confirming the bout, coach Freddie Roach announced on Wednesday that Manny Pacquiao would move back to the junior welterweight division.


The Filipino champ's bout against Chris Algieri on Nov 22 in Macau would be his last in the welterweight division, which is also Mayweather's weight class.

"I just think it's much better for Manny to fight at 140. He's much more productive at that weight. It's much more natural for him to fight at that weight," Roach said at the Pacman Wildcard Gym in General Santos City, quoted by Rappler.

Nah...Pac isn't running...he stayed there as long as that body of his could hold up at 147. Look around...it's a changing of the guard at Welterweight and the guys at JWW are more beatable at this point...at least until someone like Crawford moves up.

Perhaps he's not running but he certainly had better options than Algieri if he and his team really wanted them. And let's not forget, he's pulling Algieri up from 140 and then he'll officially go fight at 140 afterward. Smh, what's the point of that if you're going to 140 anyway? According to The Ring, IMO, 140 is kinda weak save the champ DG, who at this point, may or may not have enuff experience to beat Pac.
