Freddie Roach: We're Going To Kick Timothy Bradley's Ass

By Keith Idec

Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach smiled as Timothy Bradley held up a gigantic, fake ticket Wednesday for a rematch Bradley predicts will need to be scheduled for Nov. 10 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Neither Bradley’s bold prediction nor anything else the undefeated junior welterweight champion said or did during their final press conference bothered Roach or Pacquiao. The Filipino superstar shook hands with Bradley, joked about Bradley calling his training camp “hell” and was his usual jovial self throughout the event.

“I just wonder how much money they wasted on those tickets,” Roach told Toprank.com after the press conference, during which Bradley gave the fake front-row ticket to his wife, Monica. “It’s foolish. His mean look at Manny, like all his like drama, we’re going to kick his ass.”

Roach also dismissed comments made by Joel Diaz, Bradley’s trainer, during the buildup toward their 12-round fight Saturday night for Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight title (HBO Pay-Per-View; $54.95; 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT). Diaz has said Roach, who’ll be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame on Sunday in Canastota, N.Y., “got lucky” when he started training Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs).

“Well, did he get lucky with meeting Timothy Bradley?,” Roach said. “I guess so. That’s the way it goes. Manny had one world title when we got together. Now he has eight. I had 31 world champions. I’m not worried about [Diaz], no.”

Agreed Roach is overrated. JCC is a joke, Linares lost his last 2 fights, Kayode in "actuality" has lost twice (and he sucks btw), Pac in "actuality" has lost 3 times with Roach, Khan lost his last fight and came…

Freddie Roach is a top guy but I've never liked the [B]we're[/B], other trainers don't say that.

Roach always promises Knockouts and a bunch of other stuff and lately a lot of his fighters haven't been able to live up to Roach's pre-fight expectations :nonono: seems to me like he is expecting a EASY fight...I hope behind…
