That was what Roach told the media, Pacman liked /Moorer and he was spending too much time with Moorer, Moorer would go to Pacman's morning runs and was really getting close to Manny, Roach saw Moorer as a threat. Especially when Moorer brought up Roach's illness saying he had Roach's back and would help train his fighters.
You do know Roach wants all the accolades for himself right? Mike Tyson called Roach and asked Roach for a job, he asked Freddie can I help train MAnny Pacquiao and Roach told him no. You know why? because Roach knew if Tyson was in camp it would bring more attention to Mike Tyson and Pacuiao than him on 247.
Everything about Roach is ego. It would have been awesome to see Tyson teach Manny his head movement and cutting off the ring.
Roach is also one of the most arrogant guys in boxing.
