Roach Tabs 'Smarter' Mayweather To Beat Maidana

by David P. Greisman

Freddie Roach has been asked about Floyd Mayweather for years, largely because of the fight that never happened between Mayweather and Roach’s star boxer, Manny Pacquiao.

Roach did watch Mayweather’s win this past May over Marcos Maidana. He thinks Mayweather will repeat again and will do so “more easily.”

“He learns in his matches. He absorbs things,” Roach told BoxingScene.com on July 25. “He’ll fight a smarter fight more consistently. He’ll fight 10 rounds the way he did the last six. He gave the first four rounds away a little bit. Mayweather’s a smart fighter. He learns quick. He’s just the more intelligent fighter. Maidana’s just a puncher.”

Freddie knows "what time it is." He's not trying to call out Floyd right now, which makes me think Cotto is eyeing Canelo hard. If Cotto was looking for Mayweather next, Freddie would have said something like "he's a coward,"…

As much as Roach hates Mayweather he hates Garcia that much more lol end thread.

Listening to Roach predict a fight is like listening to a rock tell you the weather for tomorrow.
