Roach: If Mayweather Beats Ortiz, Pacquiao is Waiting

By Edward "Eddy" Chaykovsky

Freddie Roach, trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, says his boxer will be ready and able to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2012. Roach appeared on ESPN Radio and said his boxer wants the fight with Mayweather, who needs to beat WBC champion Victor Ortiz on September 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao has a scheduled fight with Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12 in Las Vegas. Both boxers need to win the scheduled bouts to keep their anticipated meeting in play.

“We want that fight badly,” Roach said. “We agreed to everything he asked for the least time... and nothing happened. Is it just talk or is it action? He is fighting Victor Ortiz and he’s a southpaw...He has to beat Ortiz first and that’s not going to be an easy task Last time, we agreed to everything he asked. On my side and on Manny’s side, we want that fight a 100%. We’re gonna fight Marquez in November and anytime after that. If (Mayweather) wants to fight the next day, we’ll be ready."
