While most of us are still dreaming about it, Freddie Roach still has hope. Roach still believes Floyd 'Money' Mayweather vs. his fighter, Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao still has a shot at happening. The Hall of Fame trainer reckons that there aren't too many PPV (pay-per-view) attractions out there for both fighters and for that reason alone he gives the fight a chance that it will happen.
"I still have hope," Roach was recently quoted as saying on ESPN, adding: "Mayweather's in the same position (Pacquiao) is. You've only got eight fighters in the world that can sell on pay-per-view and make money. That's why I give it a shot."
If Roach had a fear regarding the bout, it's that he hopes the fight doesn't happen when it is too late and both fighters are already washed up, because: "Then they're just doing it for the money, anyway."
Pacquiao returns to the ring on November 23rd at The Venetian, Macau, China vs. Brandon 'Bam Bam' Rios.
