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.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14633422]Yes. You quoted him then used his post as an example of how the "floydiots" had covered themselves in sh[I]i[/I]t in this thread. Moron. You probably didn't even see that it was mathed that you were quoting, you just went…

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;14645470]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…
