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.

    If Manny looks bad against Bradley, that means win by decision, he should retire.

    On the other hand, Floyd suffered a broken nose against Cotto and won decision, Floyd is the best pound for pound inthe world and should fight 10 more years.

    wouldn’t surprise me one bit if bradley were to beat pacquiao. pacquiao has somehow, in the eyes of his pactard fans, become this god-like figure who has gained fame by cherry picking on past their prime opponents and weight drained opponents. in other words, he’s been a very overrated boxer who has been masterfully protected by bob arum, his puppet master. marquez already exposed pacquiao as being a one dimensional boxer by masterfully counter punching the overrated drunkard turned priest.

    Pacquiao has already done enough to be in the history books, and has a prominent position in his country. He is not obliged to continue o to follow the media or even the “fans’ demands”. If he does fight is because he wants to do it.

    However…the last fight against Marquez was not in definition mode. I happen to see the fhigh of Money against Castillo 1, and Money lost it fair and square, hw, the fight was scored in favour of Money, because of the beats.…I think this is what happened in the P vs M fight.

    There is a time, when fighters should retire, a time while they are still able to talk fluently and without the sssslurry sound of the retarded. May be is his time!

    PACHECO,

    Your re such a looser, the very reason why Marquez the cheater not kissed the canvass during 3rd fight with Pacman because he keeps on running and waiting. with a combination of applying dirty thricks, foot stomping 17 times, intentional low blowed, applying of to much Gel to the face and body &  drinking an illegal substance during the fight. he! he! he! the mexican are paranoid, doing all dirty thricks just to win the fight.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rsantolin55 Ramon Antolin

    Just win this one convincingly & let’s see what happen! I Floyd has developed his balls, then a fight with him should be good! But if he keeps on ducking, let Manny retire & leave Floyd with his dreams in jail!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rsantolin55 Ramon Antolin

     Cherry-picking huh? Manny has practically cleaned up the entire list of able boxers in Mexico till not anybody can face him! You’re a moron Pacheco that’s why your mind doesn’t comprehend anything! Go back to your cell in the mental ward!

    You’re only wasting your time on this robot named Pachdejo, It is obviously programmed, the way it repetitively saying the same line all the time. Only the  wee drinker and the ducker can override its program, that is if these two clowns beat the PACMAN, but I doubt it.

    Pacquiao beats bradley, i think he’s more agile, if he could take margaritos punches then it should be no prob.

    i thought marquez is history there’s still some marquez cheerleadrs around. 
    move on girls LOL

    Yea, that was back in the days when Manny fought without catchweights. This Manny that we have here is overrated and doesn’t stand a chance against Mayweather. Hopefully he will get past bradley but that’s not a given.

    Frank! what you just commented was another stupid comment from a stupid moron!!! lol how can pacman fight floyd if floyd is doing everything to duck the fight. Idiot!

  • Anonymous

    Floyd it is a baby …and he behaves like one compare to Pacquiao. Big champions are those who face hard and tough things , even if they have to loose, loosing a fight it dosn’t mean it is a bad boxer…all we know Pacquiao will win…he knows that…and if Pacquiao retires and Floyd never fights him, he will have this burden in his career for the rest of his life…he never fought him cause he was afraid to loose and he is not champion enough to face it.

    I agree with the coach, he should retire if he looks bad against bradley. It means his time has passed

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180954712 Scott Sauder

    If Floyd fought Bradley, Everyone would say he picked a smaller man or cherry picked. I am a big fan of Manny, BUT, his fights were all picked under Top Rank and made to his advantage through catchweights bc Arum seen he had a Country behind him. Mayweather’s 72 inch reach vs Manny’s 66 inch reach is a mismatch. No one will beat Mayweather. He is too skilled, Period…PEACE !

    I give Manny his due he was a good fighter where there were not many great fighters except for Mayweather I think Manny has aged more than Floyd , I believe that Manny did too much partying between fights when he was younger and all fighters that are champions cherrypick thats what holding a title enables you to do what is there not to understand about that, Had Deloya given himself a better chance by making Manny comeup sooner he may have actually won that fight getting down so low just took too much out of him . Hatton was never really a gret boxer in America he was good here great in Europe but we all know how that works except for Klitchko. I truly believe if they being Manny and Mayweather fight at 154 mayweather will have his hands full but he is tricky and it will be a great fight but Manny will have the power there, if they fight at 147 then Mayweather has the advantage as manny has a hard time coming down. All this talk about Manny quitting is becoming nonsense what we are seeing is what happened to Duran and to Hearns and a few other fighters he carries too many people in his entourage. He needs to get rid of the dead weight before his fight with Mayweather so that he will have enough money to retire. It is just like Freddie Roach said he has more money from Manny’s fights than Manny because he has no entourage except his family. The fight will happen as it will be both of their swan songs one will go away vanquished and the other into history as the greates small fighter ever.

    Manny will lose against bradley. Hell he lost to Magarito in my opinion. Hatton and Dela Hoya was past their prime easily.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marcus.armstrong2 Marcus Armstrong

    Why wouldn’t he agree initially to olympic style drug test. Then you want 50/50 you lost 5 fights.

    Both fighters are very good and it was proven….. I would like to see them fight and see what happen…. Mayweather has better defensive style than Manny but Pacman is stronger. … If they fight 10 rounds then it will be on Manny’s advantage… Mayweather can’t run away or duck or block all punches all 10 rounds… one solid punch will end the fight… Manny was able to tolerate multiple punches from Barrera and Marquez and still able to win the fight…!
    The fight could happen if Mayweather agrees and doesn’t make any excuses.   drug test for Pacman, 60/40%,  and etc….. In my own opinion, Mayweather doesn’t want to fight Pacquiao because if he lose, his ratings will go down along with his dollar value which is true to all fighters anyway… Then a rematch that does not have any guarantee to bounch back!!!! It will be the end of his career…. For Manny, if he lost, he can always comes back and if he lost again… then he retires.. He does not have to prove himself anymore…. All Champion  expires somehow. Just an opinion and I hope I don’t offend anyone…

    If manny gets off the juice which he was on sure. If you have the past fights of  his contact with coto who i believe was robbed and a hell of a boxer in marquez  who was robbed because of the juice. Go over the coto fight observe his unnatural responses to some of coto’s power shots, anyone with blinders off, and know boxing knows this man was on the juice. Marquez made him look bad even on the juice, hence multiple bouts same opponent. His beating mayweather not even with the juice. You can only use it so long before the negative kicks in.

    If, and that’s a big if, Floyd steps up to fight the PacMan at 154, Floyd’s going to get whipped.  However, Floyd’s smart to talk and run and avoid PacMan.  Gotta give Floyd his due.

    What can I say? Floyds got good defense.  Skillful and experienced.  He defends good in the ring for an opponent not to hit his mouth.  That same mouth defends him good not to fight someone who might give him that first lost of his career.  What we don’t know if that same mouth will defend him in jail by getting it in the arse and sucking on some monkey bananas.

    That’s just dumb to say Cotto was robbed…against who?
    Also, you can say Marquez gave Pac trouble, and all 3 fights were close, but how can you saay he was robbed when he was the one with the beat up face in the last fight, when he got Knocked on his Azz 4x  in the previous 2 fights , when  he hasn’t been docked any points for 10 low blows and 2 rabbit punches total, not to mention intentional ANKLE stepping and ankle Riding almost every single round, it does happen in fights, just not EVERY single round. Don’t know how you can say Marquez won the second fight when ALOT of his punches landed ineffective or were blocked, he would’ve won the first fight IF he didn’t get KD’d 3x ! he might have won the 3rd fight if didn’t coast the last couple of wrongs and maybe if his face wasn’t MESSED up.

    Lol Margarito, you mean Marquez right?
    How can you say JMM won, when at the end of the fight only his face showed any damage, and the fact he coasted the last rounds in a close fight ?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OF4E5M23V3DGIC654FV7YPVR7A GoSam

    Marquez DOES give Pac a hard time, But… all 3 fights were close, BUT… he has never won any fight, this one dimensional fighter knocked Marquez on his azz, 4x in the first 2 fights, 2nd fight he didn’t know where the heck he was and was walking to Pac’s corner.
    This one dimensional fighter also blocked or made JMM land ineffective punches, along with a vicioius knockdown2nd fight.

    Marquez was theON LY one with a damaged face in the 3rd fight.

    ALso, Marquez is one of the dirtiest fighters out there, he Wasn’t docked any points for 10 low blows and 2 rabbit punches over the course of the trilogy, he lost to Chris John, because of 4 low blows w/c the judges probably deducted all at the end, he sets up head butts, because he knows Pac lunges in, he ankle stepped almost EVERY single round, toe stepping always happens, but riding a guys ankle as he steps back is INTENTIONAL.

    Floyd lost in the olympics and 6 times as an amateur, why isn’t Bradley getting 40 million , he’s undefeated, or chavez JR?
    THe split is about the drawing power of the fighters, floyd isn’t fighting himself, he fights on cinco de mayo for a reason, he had Canelo alvarez on the undercard vs Mosley for a reason..capiche ?

    Do you know anything about steroids? Steroids doesnt really help a fighter at all to be honest. makes them bigger yet with that they lose speed. it also does not help you take a punch. Steroids will not make your chin concrete when its glass! Juice or no Juice fighters fight. Steroids have become and excuse for less talented fighters to have an excuse for winning as well as losing. ALL pro athletes at some time use the juice, Including Floyd Gayweather. Look at how big he was when he fought DElahoya. Even Delahoya was suspicious of him. Look at how big he was when he fought Cotto? Floyd knows steroids thats why he is always accusing. He has the money to hide what he is doing. but he will get caught one day. Hard work my ass, he works hard at hiding the very thing he accuses others of. Real fighters fight. they dont duck, dodge or make excuses.

    I am a huge fight fan. Mayweather has been ducking Bradley, Williams, and a few other fighters in his weight class not just Pacquio. He doesnt want to take a chance losing, plain and simple. Ali took chances lost and won his belts back and lost them again. thats a champion. Like Shady on the radio said, undefeated means dick! when you ducking! Manny is a great fighter no doubt, he has lost fights as well as one. he is however on the downside of his career, and Mayweather loves fighting fighters once they are on the downside. He ducked Mosley for 8 years! but people dont know that. And when they fought Mosley exposed Mayweathers glass jaw! Notice tthere was no rematch, just like he didnt want a rematch with Ortiz. Ortiz was getting to his ass before the fouls. and instead of fighting to the end he sucker punched him to end the fight. then declared he’d give him a rematch then a wee later changed his mind. why is the boxing world bending to the rules of Mayweather?? He is just one fighter! take away his money and what is he? a fighter. thats it. one who plays it safe and only fights guys he can beat. Cotto was his first challenge in years. Bet there wont be a rematch no time soon!!!

    You should know there are different forms of steroids I personally had to take for an injury. Do your research.

    People tend to see what they want to see what they wish to see. Coto hit pac in the middle rounds with some shots that got unnatural responses. It’s one of the reasons mayweather SR wanted the drug testing.
