Roach Has Mixed Emotions Over Pacquiao's Victory

By Salvador Rodriguez

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach has mixed emotions over Manny Pacquiao's revenge decision win over Timothy Bradley to capture the WBO welterweight title on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley had won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao in June of 2012.

During the fight, there were things that Pacquiao did that Roach wasn't happy with. He feels Pacquiao can still improve in certain areas for the next fight - which is likely against the winner of the May 17th Juan Manuel Marquez-Mike Alvarado clash.

"I can not say he is back at his best because I didn't see that. We trained very hard for this fight, that's the truth, but there are still things missing. We were practicing some things in the gym that weren't implemented in the ring. To tell you the truth, I'm a little disappointed because of the way he fought at times. I thought he could do another kind of fight, other things," said Roach.
