Roach gives honest assessment of Mayweather and Pacquiao

Although he will be working in Manny Pacquiao’s corner on May 2 (May 3 in Manila), trainer Freddie Roach gave a straight-from-the-heart analysis of his valued fighter’s chances against Floyd Mayweather Jr. Roach believes Pacquiao has the leverage in punching power as the Filipino boxer has scored 38 knockouts out of his 57 victories, but also said Mayweather is faster than his ward. He also added that while Pacquiao has the heart, Mayweather has superior ring IQ. But Roach affirms that Pacquiao has the ability to set the tone of the marquee match-up. “Manny Pacquiao has the left hand, and he is very dangerous,” he said. “When he hits you with that, the fight will be over.”
