Roach: Even 152 is Too Much For Pacquiao-Canelo

By Salvador Rodriguez

In an earlier story on BoxingScene.com, former junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez stated that he wouldn't consider a catch-weight for a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao. Canelo made it clear that a Pacquiao fight would have to take place at nothing less than a 154-pounds, which is the junior middleweight limit.

Now that Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions are on good terms, one of the biggest fights the two promoters could make is a battle between Canelo and Pacquiao.

Canelo fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. last September at a catch-weight of 152-pounds, but Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach admits that even 152 is too much of a disadvantage for Pacquiao.

"I think [the fight] is possible, but I think 152-pounds is too much for Manny. If he [Canelo] manages to [get down to] 150-pounds it would be much better. But first let's see what happen. We've had no offers [on that fight]," Roach said.

Too heavy for Pacquiao at 152 and too light for Alvarez = no point in pursuing this. Fighters in different weight classes, nothing to see here.

This thread is so funny. Criticizing a fighter who is a small ww that only fought once at jr. mw and official weigh in was less than 147 limit. But praising a fighter that fought at 154 already and justifying a 152 catch weight. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]Yes. You quoted him then used his post as an example of how the "floydiots" had covered themselves in shit in this thread. Moron. You probably didn't even see that it was mathed that you were quoting, you just went right into your usual auto pilot routine where you froth ...

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]He did that to Holy Cross a couple weeks ago. At least I think it was Holy Cross. It was someone who obviously hates on Floyd all the time but said something that wasn't mindless hate, so "floydiot! fl0mo!"[/QUOTE] It's obvious that he doesn't think before he posts.
