Legendary Trainer Freddie Roach has weighed in on this Saturday's highly anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez. Roach who has trained such greats as Mike Tyson and James Toney and currently trains superstar Manny Pacquiao is predicting that Mayweather Jr. will win the fight by way of a points victory.

Speaking to Reuters, Roach stated he feels Mayweather Jr. will win by decision in what most likely will be a boring fight due to the fact that both fighters are counter punchers. Roach tells the publication: "I like Mayweather to win on a decision, although it might be a boring fight because they are both naturally counter punchers."

Roach added that because the fight is between two counter punchers, he is really not that excited for the fight. "I'm not really excited about this fight," said Roach, adding: "To be honest, because it's between two counter punchers."

Mayweather Jr. vs. Marquez takes place this Saturday, Sept. 19 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can catch the fight live on HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
