Roach: Floyd Mayweather's Legs Are Gone, He's All Done!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Freddie Roach, trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, says his fighter would face Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a unification at any weight required. Mayweather holds the WBC/WBA welterweight and junior middleweight titles.

Pacquiao defends his title against Chris Algieri on November 22nd at the Venetian in Macau, China. Mayweather will face Marcos Maidana in a rematch on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao's handlers, and his promoter Top Rank, want to make the fight happen if both boxers win their upcoming matches.

Roach believes Mayweather is past his best and no longer has his legs.

"We'll fight Mayweather at any weight. It doesn't matter. Weight is not an issue with him. Whatever weight he wants to fight at - we'll fight him. He's shot, he's all done, his legs are gone...based on his last two fights. He says he doesnt move to make it more exciting for the audience - bullsh*t. I'm not picking Maidana. He already knows how to beat him which is why he took the rematch. It makes no sense because it's not going to sell any tickets," Roach told 12 Sports.
