Roach Not Training Pacquiao For July

Roach Not Training Pacquiao For July

Manny Pacquiao yesterday said that he "can't wait" for another title shot when he takes on World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse.

An International Boxing Hall of Fame awardee, Roach had said on record that Pacquiao may no longer be the dreaded boxer that he was after losing his International Boxing Federation welterweight crown to upstart Australian challenger Jeff Horn by a controversial unanimous decision in July a year ago in the latter's hometown of Brisbane, Australia. Koncz said Pacquiao has replaced Roach with Buboy Fernandez, Pacquiao's lifelong friend and the career-long assistant trainer who has been with him for every fight. "Matthysse is also a knockout artist", Pacquiao had said last month.

The company also operates water parks here in Corpus Christi, Galveston, South Padre Island and New Braunfels. Schwab's family have settled with the park and various companies connected to the slide for $20million.


Pacquiao adviser Michael Koncz told ESPN that the kickoff news conference to announce the fight is scheduled for April 18 in Manila in Pacquiao's home country of the Philippines, with another scheduled for April 20 in Kuala Lumpur. In fact, 15 of Matthysse's last 16 victories have ended in stoppage, and that includes knocking out one of the better boxers in Thailand in the eighth round a couple months ago.

Earlier in March, Pacquiao announced this fight versus the Argentinian boxer. Roach has been instrumental to Pacquiao's success and numerous world title wins. And while Bob Arum will still be involved with the fight, it seems that Freddie Roach will not be training Pacquiao for the July 14th showdown.

Koncz declined to discuss Pacquiao's promotional status with Top Rank, with whom there has been an apparent fracture, but he said they would work together on this fight and, hopefully, on another fight in the fall.

Manny Pacquiao will indeed get his welterweight title fight against Lucas Matthysse with the help of a promoter other than Top Rank.
