Roach: I'm watching tape to prepare for a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight
By Kevin Iole - Yahoo Sports

MACAU -- Freddie Roach has spent the better part of the latter three months preparing Manny Pacquiao to face Chris Algieri. But Roach also reserved a bit of that time to watch some video of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Roach said not long after Pacquiao's dominant victory over Algieri Saturday before 13,202 fans at Cotai Arena that he is at least guardedly optimistic a bout with Mayweather, the pound-for-pound king, may occur next year.

Roach said he facilitated a summer meeting at Arum's Beverly Hills, Calif., home between the veteran promoter and Leslie Moonves, the chairman of CBS Corp., in the hopes of them arranging a fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather. Roach said Moonves was angry at Arum because Arum had promised Moonves that Pacquiao would fight three times on Showtime and he only fought once....

roach has shown a total inability to adapt

as pac gets older he's getting increasingly tagged by the straight right...with mayweather it would be all over

Cant prepare to face Floyd. He has plan A,B,C,D,E............................ He will adjust in between rounds and even during exchanges. You cant prepare enough for Floyd.

Maybe there is a reason Pac and Cotto didnt face Floyd during his prime.























Floyd if you are reading this.......Make the fight and seal your legacy.

Roach facilitated all of this? It took Roach to get Arum and Moonves together, but nothing like this could be done for the other 4+ years?! LOL    I guess kind of like Roach originally said on camera that Pac would take any tests that Floyd wanted, then days later said Pac wouldn't concede to Floyd's demands. Excuse me if I call BS.

This sortnof kills that notion that Manny only calls out Floyd when fight is set.  Manny just finished fighting and Floyd has not fight set.  i expect a "i knew nothing about Manny wanted to fight me " response.  Expect the "all roads lead to Mayweather speech."

people are talking about this fight like it might happen

Yes, yes they are. Are those people foolish? Or are those that disagree merely jaded? I dunno the answer, really.
