Trainer Freddie Roach expects Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) to get revenge for him on November 23rd in Macau, China. Pacquiao will face Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs).
Before Pacquiao's match with Antonio Margarito at Cowboys Stadium in 2010, a video surfaced on the internet where Margarito and Rios were making fun of Roach's ongoing physical struggles with Parkinson’s disease. Roach says Pacquiao will punish and knock Rios out.
“Rios is not difficult to figure out,” Roach said to Ron Borges. “He wants to throw punches and when you do that you get hit. He’s very hittable, more hittable than Avarado. Manny will knock him out and I’ll be happy to see it. They can do what they want but that video was an embarrassment to them. [The video] bothered a lot of people. I won’t lie to you. It bothered me too. It still bothers me. This fight is going to be great payback.”
