Freddie Roach will tell Manny Pacquiao to retire if he looks bad in Bradley fight

Manny Pacquiao will face Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, and it could be his last professional fight.

“Bradley’s no killer, but he tries hard,” Freddie Roach said, according to the Associated Press. “Manny should eat him up as he comes forward. I think Manny should look really good in this fight.

“If he looks bad, he retires. At least I’ll tell him to. And he may be the first one who will listen to me.”

Pacquiao might not even need the convincing from Roach if he looks bad. The boxer has been talking about retirement ever since February, and reiterated his stance in March.

Pacquiao is only 33 years old, but this will be his 60th professional fight. He also is a congressman in the Philippines and has a future in politics to consider. About all he has left in boxing is a bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. that looks no closer to happening.
