Default Roach Threatens To Go Home!

ROACH THREATENS TO GO HOME!

Celebrated trainer Freddie Roach, who is widely recognized as being responsible for turning Filipino ring idol Manny Pacquiao into the most exciting fighter in the world today, is fed up with the failure to enforce security at the gym of Rex “Wakee” Salud and has threatened to pull-out and return to Los Angeles.

In a long distance telephone conversation with Viva Sports/Manila Standard Today, Roach said the gym was swarming with people today and told us he had given Salud “one last chance” to keep his promise to prevent fans from jamming the gym and effectively distracting Pacquiao from his training regimen. Roach said "if nothing happens I'm going home."

Roach said Salud makes promises and doesn’t keep them reminding all concerned what happened to Pacquiao in the first fight against Erik “El Terrible” Morales when fans crowded the Wild Card Gym and Pacquiao couldn’t focus on the fight itself and eventually lost.

When strict measures were imposed in the gym and Pacquiao trained in seclusion he simply ripped into Morales and knocked him out in the last two fights of their famous trilogy.

Philboxing.com reported that droves of fans invaded the gym from even far-flung Cebu towns prompting Roach to ask “who are these mysterious people showing up at the gym. They suddenly came out of the woodwork and the guards can't seem to stop them.”

Salud told us late this afternoon that he was in a meeting in which they were drawing up plans for issuing passes to watch Pacquiao train even to media, while Roach, except in special instances, doesn’t want video cameras when Pacquiao is sparring. Salud promised that he would “definitely impose strict measures beginning tomorrow” although Roach was apparently unimpressed telling Philboxing “I will believe it when I see it.”

Roach is paid - it's not about the money anymore. He's more worried about his safety and doing his job right. He's been in the game long enough to know what will distract his fighter and what won't.

He didn't train Vasquez for is fight against Marquez - it wasn't because the money wasn't right - it was because he didn't thinking Vasquez was ready to fight again after a broken nose.

My point is the man has morals that he sticks by. Let the crowd continue to make it's ways in the gym and watch what Roach does.

He loves Manny though. At least it seems that way.

As much as he may love Manny - he loves himself even more.

If Manny doesn't get his Training Camp in order - MAB may just walk all over him. I think Pac-Man walks away with a win - but only if everything goes Roach way. If Roach is unhappy - I don't see how they can have a good training camp.

I bet MAB is training like crazy. He's looking to avenge a lost and this is suppose to be his final fight. This one should be good.

I think so. Technically, MAB is light years ahead of the limited, but powerful & aggressive Pacman. Their 1st fight caught MAB off gaurd. He'll be ready for that shit next time & he'll be the one putting Pacman on the seat of his pants.

Manny being upset one of these days, if not by Barrera then by some other fairly big underdog, wouldn't surprise me.

He ought to go into seclusion for his training.

He should leave the Philippines during training. I remember they talked about him before one of his fights (I think JMM) and how people would like him as far away from the Philippines as possible when he's training, so he has less distractions.

Remember - as one dimensional as Manny is - he's still winning.

Most of the guys he fight have more skills than him - but his pressure and relentless attack keeps his opponents on the defensive side. It's hard to score points - let alone win a fight like that.

Pac-Man by Split-decision - maybe even UD.
