Roach: Mayweather, Pacquiao Options Getting Smaller

By Edward Chaykovsky

Freddie Roach, who trains Manny Pacquiao, feels a potential fight will Floyd Mayweather Jr. will eventually happen because both boxers are running out of opponents. Right now, they fight on separate networks, with Mayweather under an exclusive deal with Showtime and Pacquiao fighting on HBO - although he is not contractually bound to them.

With their options getting smaller, Roach can see the fight coming together in the near future. It won't be in 2014. Pacquiao is fighting WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley in a rematch on April 12th. If he wins, then he will face the winner of Juan Manuel Marquez-Mike Alvarado in the fall.

"Well the thing is they are running out of opponents and I think somewhere before the last fight in his contract, he’s gonna have to cross over and fight Pacquiao. So you know, Top Rank, Showtime, Golden Boy, HBO and all that — the pool’s getting smaller, so someone’s gonna have to give in pretty soon because there are no opponents in the future. Pacquiao is available and waiting, and if he doesn’t have an opponent we’re definitely willing to fight him," Roach told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Floyd 1) Take the test 2) Leave top rank 3) Accept 40 million and nothing more Pacquiao 1) Won't do random testing for various reasons (not going to be bossed around, scared of needles and loss of blood will make him weaker) 2) Arum wants a new stadium built for the fight 3) 50/50 o...

I know that the Pac/May or May/Pac can be promoted by both TR & GBP at the same time, But Im just wondering if the fight can televise PPV thru HBO & Showtime at the same time. Is it possible?

Somehow Marquez got into the ring 4 times with Pac. Bradley about to get into the ring for the second time. And Floyd has never managed to make it into the ring once!

comment by tyshun30, on 03-30-2014
[QUOTE=right_uppercut]Your ignorant comment is asinine unbelievable. Floyd offered Pac $40 MM and his people convinced him to turn it down, thinking 1) he had better options or 2) that he deserved an equal split. Look at him now with his dwindling prospects and lingering tax problems its obvious ...
