almost every trainer has pointed this out, even Roach credits Pacquiao for making him famous, so at least Roach knows it.
But Roach has never taken a fighter from nothing to something the way Emmanuel Steward has, Joe Goossen, Robert Garcia, and a couple of others have.
Pacquiao was already a champion who defeated the lineal Flyweight champion in Thailand without Roach in his corner.
I wonder why Pacman got rid of his old American trainer who helped guide him to that title and basically was with him from when he was a teen till he left to America.
I forgot that guys name but his first name was Rick I believe.
