Legendary Coach Freddie Roach Attends Local Boxing Event in PH

Just a few more weeks before the battle of Brisbane, legendary coach and long time friend and also the local boxing coach of Manny Pacquiao attended a boxing event promoted by SanMan promotion in General Santos City.
In the heat of preperation for the fight with Jeff Horn, the two coaches found a brief moment to get a glimpse of the local boxing scene.  The event was headed by two promising young fighters who both won their respective fights during the event. 
Aston Palacite and Romero Duno both had a great showing in front of Freddie Roach who I believe could potentially work with him in the future.

Does Manny Pacquiao Still Got the Knockout Power? Freddie Knows!

Freddie Roach is back in the Philippines once again to guide his long time student in his fight against another undefeated opponent in Jeff Horn.
On paper, Jeff Horn does not present a real danger to Manny Pacquiao. He has only fought 7 times and has not faced anybody with a Pacquiao caliber.
We have got to remember however that he’s got the world as prize if he wins against the legend that is Manny Pacquiao.  He has the opportunity to be an instant superstar if he finds the right solution to beat Manny Pacquiao. Regardless how Jeff wins it will be the talk of the town.
On the other hand, Manny Pacquiao is an established legend of boxing and while his opponent may not present a big danger, the expectation of the fans is high and if he loses, it would damage his legacy.
Everyone is calling for nothing short than a knockout win while it’s not close to impossible. 
We are see Manny Pacquiao will have a calculated aggression in this fight. This could mean that he would still be careful and wary of a punch. Jeff Horn is a young guy after all and one punch can turn everything around.
While we can all argue if Manny Pacquiao still got the knockout power, we say, why don’t we just ask the master.
Let’s listen in to Freddie Roach  talk about Manny Pacquiao’s knockout power.

Why did Freddie Admit Floyd is Better than Manny?

Manny Pacquiao’s long time trainer finally admits Floyd is better than Pacquiao.
“Manny has an eight world title and a lot of great opponents and so forth. Mayweather had the same, had a great career and undefeated, so I guess, so I guess we have to give it to Mayweather.”
Freddie mentioned on Boxingscene.com.
Freddie was the long time coach and friend of Manny Pacquiao and was in the corner when the two fighters met. Pacquiao lost the showdown that night. If he had won the fight he may have been the best ever in this generation.
Manny will have his last fight in 2016 but his opponent is still undetermined. Names that are within the selection are Bradley, Crawford, Khan and Bronner.

Coach Freddie Roach sets sights on London

source: Joaquin Henson | philstar.com

LAS VEGAS – With the US unable to make an impact in Olympic boxing for decades, renowned trainer Freddie Roach has agreed to join the coaching staff that will prepare American fighters in their quest for gold at the 2012 London Olympics.

Roach said he will turn the medal hopefuls into “Manny Pacquiaos” and try to bring back Olympic glory to the Motherland.

“I’m an American,” said Roach proudly in the dressing room after Pacquiao trounced Sugar Shane Mosley on points to retain his WBO welterweight title at the MGM Grand Garden Arena here Saturday night. “I’ll make our guys fight like Manny.”

Roach appeared in a press conference the morning of the Pacquiao-Mosley bout to announce his acceptance of the invitation to work with US Olympic boxing coach Joe Zanders. He wore a white Nike shirt with the words “Freddie Knows 2012” in the front. Roach’s business associates, including best friend Billy Keane, book author Peter Nelson and publicity agent Fred Sternburg wore the same shirt at the press conference.

Roach credited Sternburg for thinking of the “Freddie Knows 2012” slogan. Nelson wrote Roach’s soon-to-be-released book “The Wild Card – Hard-Fought Lessons from a Life in the Ring.”

Roach plans to be in London when the Olympics reel off next year. He was recently in Manchester to work WBA lightwelterweight champion Amir Khan’s corner in his title defense against Paul McCloskey. Roach is widely known in England for taking over Khan’s boxing career after he was knocked out by Breidis Prescott in 2008. Khan was a silver medalist at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Asked if the commitment to the US Olympic boxing program will mean a major adjustment in his work schedule with professional fighters, Roach said it’s all about time management. “We’ll work something out,” said Roach. “I won’t turn my back on my country.” It is expected that the medal hopefuls will train at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles.

In the press conference, Roach said, “I think it’s embarrassing that America’s not winning more gold medals…I want to help the Olympic team get back in form, I know the game well and I think I have a lot to offer these kids.”

Roach admitted that he was previously asked by Pacquiao himself and Filipino friends to assist in training Filipino Olympic fighters. “But I’m an American,” he said. “I need to help my country.” Roach, however, tries to accommodate Filipino hopefuls in his gym whenever possible. Fil-Am amateur middleweight Julian Santos Chua, for instance, is a regular at the Wild Card Gym.

Late this month, Roach will join the US coaching staff at a High Performance retreat in Colorado Springs. In July, he will attend the US Olympic boxing trials. Roach will be involved in training the men and women hoping to make it to London.

“USA Boxing has identified the lack of integration of its athletes’ personal coaches into past training plans as a key weakness in the organization’s major event preparation,” noted a press release from the US Olympic Committee (USOC) communications division. “The inclusion of the US medal hopefuls’ own coaches in Freddie Roach’s training sessions will be a critical component. These unique training opportunities will provide USA Boxing’s grassroots coaches with innovative training plans and tips they can take to their local gyms and share with additional athletes and fellow local coaches.”

Roach, 51, learned the basics of training fighters from the legendary Eddie Futch. He has trained nearly 20 world champions and is a five-time Trainer of the Year awardee by the Boxing Writers Association of America.

“An Olympic medal is one of the greatest accomplishments in all of sport and I promise to do all I can to ensure that these young men and women are fully prepared to go to London to proudly represent our country,” said Roach. “A special thanks to USA Boxing and the USOC for supporting this initiative and Casey Wasserman and Nick Khan for helping to put this together. This partnership is an exciting new chapter in my career and I can’t wait to get started.”

USOC chief executive officer Scott Blackmun said, “I’d like to thank Freddie and his team for their willingness to help our boxers achieve their highest potential…I’m thrilled that we were able to make this happen and can’t wait to see the results.”

USA Boxing executive director Anthony Bartkowski said Roach’s “extensive experience will augment our high performance and training plans and we look forward to working with him to build international success in London and beyond.”

Up to 10 men and women are tipped to represent the US in Olympic boxing. Roach’s participation was described as “an add-on to the 2011-12 approved High Performance plan with the intent of providing a unique and valuable resource for the designated athletes as a supplement to the existing coaching structure.”

Pacquiao begins gym work for Mosley fight (VIDEO)

source: abs-cbnnews.com

Eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao already began his gym work on Saturday, more than 2 months away from his May 7 welterweight title clash against former world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley.

Pacquiao, who started his stamina work last Thursday, visited the People’s Champ Gym in his hometown in General Santos City to pick up the tempo of his training.

Although his heavy training will actually begin on March 12 in Baguio City, the Filipino superstar said he wanted to cover the basics again.

’Yun ‘yung ginagawa natin, basics sa training natin (We’re covering the basics of training),” said Pacquiao.

His Canadian adviser, Michael Koncz, said Pacquiao only wanted to make sure that his conditioning is already at an ideal level before he begins the heavy training.

“We’re not underestimating Mosley. He’s the most experienced fighter that Manny’s ever faced,” said Koncz.

After training in General Santos, the Filipino boxer flew to Manila on Saturday afternoon to attend the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) awards night at the Manila Hotel.

Pacquiao, also hailed as the “Fighter of the Decade”, will be staking his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title when he faces Mosley in Las Vegas.

Most boxing observers see the 39-year-old Mosley at a gross disadvantage against Pacquiao because of age.

The Filipino champion, however, does not share this sentiment. He thinks Mosley still has enough gas left in his tank.

Hindi natin puwede i-underestimate ang magaling na boksingero… Malakas din at champion din,” he earlier said of Mosley. “Sa experience, talo tayo.”

(We should not underestimate a great boxer. He’s strong and a champion. He has the advantage in experience.)

Aside from being an amateur standout, Mosley won several world titles in three weight classes.

The last title he held was the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight crown he won by beating Antonio Margarito.

He lost this belt after being defeated by Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May last year.

A Mayweather-Pacquiao bout is one of the most awaited among boxing enthusiasts. — With a report from Anne Santos, ABS-CBN SOKSARGEN

Pacman’s fitness coach in trouble

By Abac Cordero (The Philippine Star)
MANILA, Philippines – Is Alex Ariza out of Team Pacquiao?

Freddie Roach, the chief trainer, won’t say anything about it, not for the moment, and Mike Koncz, Manny Pacquiao’s chief adviser, wouldn’t say yes or no either.

But cutman Miguel Diaz, an old, reliable hand in Pacquiao’s corner, has hinted that the strength and conditioning expert from Colombia is out of the picture.

Diaz bumped into Filipino orthodentist Ed dela Vega somewhere in California the other day, and the former, who’s had a history with Ariza, said he’ll be there for the Mosley fight.

“Who else will it be if not me? And guess who is not working Manny’s corner? It’s that fraud who just recently started working for him lately,” Diaz told Dela Vega, the maker of customized mouthguards.

“I have been with Manny for years and that fraud is new. So, guess who is not working for Manny?” Diaz added, referring to Ariza, as Dela Vega said.

Ariza is not that new to Team Pacquiao. He’s been there since the David Diaz fight in 2008, and has helped the Filipino champion become the only boxer to win eight world titles in as many weight divisions.

But for the Antonio Margarito fight last November, things didn’t seem as rosy as before between Ariza and some members of Team Pacquiao, and midway through the camp, they had dropped some of Ariza’s training methods.

“Manny wanted some change. He wanted to go back to the old ways, and none or less of the plyometrics and isometrics and certainly none of swimming, which Alex has introduced to Manny as part of training,” said a team member.

Ariza was also vocal of his thoughts on how Pacquiao trained for the Margarito fight, and in one of HBO’s 24/7 episodes, he said some things about the “quick (side) trips” the boxer took at the thick of training.

Ariza may have gotten Pacquio’s attention there or even drawn the boxer’s ire.

Another 24/7 episode showed Pacquiao seated beside Ariza as they travelled, and when the latter asked for some air, saying it felt a little hot, Pacquiao said, “Then take off your jacket. You say it’s hot, then take off your jacket. It’s common sense.”

From thereon, you knew something was boiling.

Ariza was in the news lately for a squabble with Amir Khan and the boxer’s father, after the rising star from the United Kingdom defeated Marcos Maidana last December.

Some said it had something to do with a contract that Khan, the WBA light-welterweight champion, signed with Ariza, a contract that was not accepted by the father, Shah Khan.

Ariza had confirmed his split-up with Khan, after a short-lived partnership, and said recently that the 24-year-old star still owed him money for as fees for him working for the Maidana fight.

He lashed out at the boxer’s father.

“I was surprised by what happened, but it has nothing to do with Amir. His father has just shown his lack of experience of dealing inside boxing,” Ariza told Garreth Davies of The Telegraph.

“I understand Amir is his meal ticket and he does not want to go back to driving cabs for a living. Freddie [Roach] is surprised. Amir will still be working with Freddie. But they still haven’t paid me for preparing Amir for the fight against Marcos Maidana. We have a contract.”

The father, however, said otherwise.

“We had no contract with him (Ariza). Our deal is with Freddie. Freddie brought in Alex Ariza as conditioning coach. There were ‘issues’ with Alex, and Amir was not happy about it,” he said.

Khan said Roach has introduced him to a new conditioning coach.

Will this one be the new one in Team Pacquiao as well?

Roach: Pacquiao has a long way to go

source: abs-cbnnews.com

Acclaimed trainer Freddie Roach admitted that boxer-congressman Manny Pacquiao is not yet in tip-top shape, two weeks after they kicked off their Baguio City training camp.

“The direction I want him to move is a little better. The stuff we were doing yesterday came through today. He’s not 100 percent; we still have a long way to go,” Roach told Ted Lerner of Ring Magazine.

But he commended his prized fighter, saying that his timing was a little better.

“We’re just beginning to get the game plan down and get the timing and so forth. He did what I wanted him to do a couple of times. It’s a work in progress,” he added.

The four-time Trainer of the Year also mentioned that it is normal for Pacquiao not to be in superb form at this point.

“If that Manny Pacquiao went into a fight, we’d probably lose. But that’s why we have an eight-week training camp, so we can improve. You can’t expect too much out of a guy who hasn’t been in the ring since last March,” noted Roach.

Pacquiao defeated Ghanaian Joshua Clottey last March 13 by unanimous decision at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

He will return to the $1.2-billion stadium on November 13 for his World Boxing Council (WBC) super welterweight title clash against Mexican Antonio Margarito. The WBC title at stake is vacant.

Pacquiao, a Fighter of the Decade and three-time Fighter of the Year, has 51 wins (with 38 knockouts), 3 losses and 2 draws.

Three-time world champion Margarito has 38 wins (with 27 knockouts), 6 losses and 1 no contest. – With a report from Ring Magazine

Pacquiao training shifts to high gear in Baguio City

source: gmanews.tv

No more playing around. As the team of Manny Pacquiao arrives in Baguio Sunday, Freddie Roach expects training for the Filipinos’ coming title fight with Antonio Margarito to shift into high gear.

It’s time to get a little more serious now,” said Roach shortly before taking the six-hour trip that will bring him and the rest of the Pacquiao entourage to the country’s Summer Capital.

“We need to start working within ourselves a little bit more.”

Pacquiao, Roach, along with conditioning coach Alex Ariza and sparring mates Michael Medina and Glen Tapia left Manila Sunday afternoon, less than 24 hours after breaking camp in Manila Saturday.

The world’s top pound-for-pound fighter’s Baguio arrival came a week short after he chose to postpone it to attend to his busy schedule in Congress as the lone representative of the province of Sarangani.

But the 31-year-old Filipino ring sensation did keep himself in shape by doing a daily, two-hour afternoon workout at the Elorde gym in Roosevelt, Quezon City.

Although still around 60 percent from his fighting form, Roach said the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter remains in good condition even if his ward has not fought since scoring a 12-round unanimous decision over Joshua Clottey last March.

“He is still fast and beat the hell out of me today in the mitts,” said Roach of their last workout in Manila two days ago.

The four-time Trainer of the Year acceded to Pacquiao’s decision to postpone training camp in Baguio for a week, but would not in any way allow the group to stay another day in Manila.

His reason – “It’s the traffic.”

Roach said it usually takes them more than an hour traveling from the New World Hotel in Makati where they stay, all the way to the Elorde gym in Quezon City.

The 50-year old trainer was even forced to take the MRT along with Ariza, Medina and Tapia when they were caught in a monstrous traffic jam at EDSA while on their way home to training.

So setting up camp in Baguio is definitely a welcome news for Roach.

Once in the mountain hideaway, Roach said it’s all business for the Pacman.

Training at the Cooyesan Hotel will be closed door, according to Roach, like the one they had when Pacquiao held camp at the same site during his World Boxing Organization (WBO) title fight with Miguel Cotto last year.

By Tuesday, the first of a projected 140 rounds of sparring begins, Roach added, with Medina the first to test the mettle of the Filipino ring idol.

The Pacquiao entourage will be staying in Baguio for at least three weeks, before planing to Los Angeles, California, tentatively on Oct. 20, for the final phase of the training at the famed Wild Card gym.

Playtime Over for Pacquiao as Roach, Sparmates Arrive

source: Nick Giongco | mb.com.ph

Playtime for Manny Pacquiao is over. Top trainer Freddie Roach arrived in Manila early Sunday morning from Los Angeles accompanied by a pair of mean-looking junior-middleweights who will lend a hand in Pacquiao’s buildup for the Nov. 13 showdown with Antonio Margarito.


“We’re going to train tomorrow (Monday),” Roach told the Bulletin as soon as he emerged from a throng of well-wishers and fellow passengers at the Centennial Airport.

Roach came in with Glen Tapia (from the Dominican Republic) and Michael Medina (Mexico), who will be the other half of sparring partners that would also include Vanes Martirosyan (Armenia) and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (Mexico).

Tapia has a 7-0 record with five knockouts, while Medina has a 24-2 mark with 19 stoppages.

We’re looking forward to working with Manny Pacquiao,” said Tapia, who got Roach’s attention as he shadow-boxed while waiting for their hotel keys at the lobby of the New World.

Martirosyan and Chavez Jr., son of the legendary Julio Cesar Sr., are expected to hit town anytime this week in time for the start of training camp in Baguio City, according to Roach.

Roach said Rashad Holloway, who was tapped when Pacquiao revved up for Oscar De La Hoya in 2008, will be utilized once Pacquiao and the celebrated cornerman return to the familiar confines of the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood in the third or fourth week of October.

Roach had wanted to proceed immediately to Baguio City but Pacquiao’s adviser Mike Koncz said the pound-for-pound king plans to send a few more days or the rest of the week in Manila before going up to the City of Pines.

Baguio had been used by Roach and Pacquiao as training camp when they were preparing to face Miguel Cotto at around the same time last year.

Last week, Pacquiao trained briefly at the Elorde Gym on Del Monte Ave. in Quezon City before returning to General Santos City for a brief R&R.

Already in the country since last week is Alex Ariza, the revered conditioning coach and nutritionist of Pacquiao.

Pacquiao training set next month

By NICK GIONGCO | http://www.mb.com.ph

Freddie Roach will camp out in Metro Manila with Manny Pacquiao in the second week of September then spend the next four weeks at the Wild Card in Hollywood and in Texas, assuming the fight with Antonio Margarito ends up being staged there on November 13.

Roach told fight scribe Gareth Davies of The Telegraph of London that everything is all set for Pacquiao’s eight-week preparation and that the only thing that concerns him about Margarito is his immense size.

Pacquiao, who is five inches shorter at 5-6 compared to Margarito.

“He (Margarito) is a big, strong guy. (But) I am not a big Margarito fan,” said Roach. “Manny will have too much for him. It’s just the size I’m concerned about.”

Roach has an idea how the fight is going to be like.

“Manny will start fast with this guy, and he will finish him fast.”

Margarito has agreed on a catchweight of 151 lbs and the fight is going to be for the vacant World Boxing Council super-welterweight crown, according to Arum, who is eyeing Cowboys Stadium in Dallas as venue.

Arum is hopeful that the state of Texas will issue Margarito a license anytime this week after Nevada and California denied the Mexican banger owing to a handwraps issue that led to his suspension for one year.

Roach will be joined in the country by strength coach Alex Ariza and a battery of sparring partners led by Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who is about six feet and whose style resembles that of Margarito.

Floyd scared to lose to Manny — Roach

source: tribune.net.ph

Freddie Roach yesterday predicted the Pacquiao knocking out Antonio Margarito in their clash on Nov. 13 in a place yet to be identified as the Mexican-American has yet to obtain a license to box in the United States as a result of his suspension for playing with tampered handwraps against Shane Mosley last year.

And on Wednesday, Margarito was denied a license to fight in California by the state’s athletic commission, leaving him to ponder options for a planned fight against Pacquiao.

Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News, however, reported Margarito wasted no time in applying for a license to fight in Texas to push through with his plan to contest the World Boxing Council Superwelterweight crown against Pacquiao at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, where Pacquiao had proven his star as a top ticket seller.

According to Horn, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has received a faxed application from Margarito, department spokeswoman Susan Stanford said Thursday, with Margarito receiving support from the National Association of Boxing Commissions.

He is now free to pursue licensure with any ABC member commission. There is nothing under the federal law that would prohibit consideration for licensure,” the ABC was quoted by Horn as saying.

Margarito’s fall was caused by an enforcement of suspension by the California State Athletic Commission, which found him with padded handwraps when he was about to face Shane Mosley, which beat him on January 24, 2009 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

While Pacquiao’s camp is waiting, Brad Cooney of the examiner.com reported Roach’s prediction, saying: “ I am confident in my fighter (Pacquiao) and I do predict a knockout along the way.”

Margarito is a big guy, so his size will be a little bit difficult. Is he a big puncher? We will see. I will be watching his hand wrapping the whole entire time,” Roach added.

To make sure Pacquiao will not slcaken, Roach said he will be bringing in Julio Cezar Chavez to the Philippines to spar with Pacquiao.

“I am bringing Chavez with me to the Philippines to work with Manny Pacquiao. Chavez will spar with Manny and he will help us get Manny ready for this next fight. It will be good work for both of them.”

But Roach still has Floyd Mayweather in his radar as he did not discount the possibility of putting his ward and the American in one ring.

“I can’t believe that this fight isn’t happening,” said Roach. Maybe with Don King, something can get done. With him anything can happen.”

Roach also denied it’s Pacquiao who’s ducking opportunities to fight Mayweather.

We agreed to everything then (Mayweather’s demand for an Olympic-style drung testing). Mayweather said no negotiations were going on, and that busted in his face. That leaves one thing, Mayweather is scared to lose. I think ultimately the fight will happen,” Roach said. With reports from AFP
