Freddie Roach does not think the cramps that Manny Pacquiao has complained about following recent bouts will recur in his upcoming fourth fight against Juan Manuel Marquez.

“We've never had cramp problems in the gym, just when the fights start,” the Hall of Fame trainer said Friday during an ESPN.com chat. “He said he has a handle with it. We haven't had any problems at all yet, and I don't think there will be.”

Ever since this fight was signed, Roach has emphasized the need for Pacquiao to perform differently than he did with his controversial decision victory in his previous fight with Marquez and differently than he did in his controversial decision loss against Timothy Bradley earlier this year.

“The thing about this fight is we need a KO to win,” Roach wrote. He said Pacquiao will need to “try quicker,” and if he hurts Marquez, “put the pressure on him. Don’t pull up and lay off him.”

Roach said the most success Pacquiao had with Marquez in the past “was attacking him with fast combinations.

“I’m trying to get Manny to get that fire back,” the trainer wrote, saying he’s told Pacquiao that he will get $1,000 if he knocks Roach down while they’re working on the mitts during training camp.

Meanwhile, Roach also says he plans to tune out one distraction from Pacquiao on fight night — a basketball game.

Pacquiao had reportedly been watching an NBA playoff game involving the Boston Celtics while in his room before June’s bout with Bradley. In Friday’s chat, Roach was informed by a question in Friday’s chat that the Celtics have a game that evening.

“I'm not his babysitter, so he'll make that decision,” Roach wrote. “I will be against it. I will ask the venue to not have TVs in the locker room. Thanks for the tip.”

Finally a boxing journalist that goes to the real source (in this case Freddy Roach) for info on a fighter (Pac). It's about frigging time!!!!

[QUOTE=ADP02]I would think that by now Roach has learnt not to give out his plan completely. So Roach is just summarizing here .... at least that is what I hope he is doing. but I do agree that Manny should NOT just be thinking KO because he needs to think of how he can even get in position to K...

[QUOTE=rayb112]Pacquaio's cramps comes from dehydration which is come side effects of steroids!!![/QUOTE] Dehydration does not come from improper hydration. It's da roids. Durr. Hurr. Derp.

[QUOTE=woopwoop]"Trying quicker" Said Roach lol. Jmm will time Manny and will just pile on points, if Jmm can tag a lightning fast Pac at 126/130 in fights 1 and 2 and make him miss, how much more now? It showed on the 3rd fight, Manny slowed down a bit. Again. Lead foot outside Manny, S...
