Roach: Mosley Will Attack Early, Pacquiao Will Be Ready

By Chris LaBate

Trainer Freddie Roach is promising an agressive Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, when the Filipino champion defends his WBO welterweight title against former three division champion Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Roach expects Mosley to bring the fight to Pacquiao in the early rounds, because he believes stamina will be an issue for Mosley as the fight moves along.

"Manny will be aggressive with Shane. Shane is a dangerous fighter with one-punch knockout power. I think he's going to come after Manny early. I think he knows his opportunity to knocked Manny out will be in the first four rounds because he knows that later in the fight his legs will go. I can expect him to attack us with his power but we'll be ready for it," Roach told BoxingScene.com.

Roach is not underestimating Mosley by paying too much attention to his recent performances against Sergio Mora and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"I don't pay too much attention to that. Fighters have looked bad in fights before and then come back. It's part of life," Roach said. "But I think we will break him down as the fight goes along and I hope that Manny can be the first guy to knock him out."

Of course, he will. He's too boneheaded to take his dad's advise.
