Pacquiao's Adviser Not Worried Zab Helping Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

Mike Koncz, adviser to WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, has no concerns over Floyd Mayweather Jr. using former three division champion Zab Judah as a sparring partner. Judah is a quick southpaw. Mayweather takes on Pacquiao on May 2nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather and Judah are longtime friends but actually fought each other in 2006, with Floyd winning a twelve round decision. The fight had controversy after a brawl broke out between the two trainers, Roger Mayweather Joel Judah.

“We don’t care about it,” Koncz told The Manila Times in a phone interview. “Nobody in this world can do what Manny [Pacquiao] does inside the ring. Zab Judah is a southpaw just like Manny, but he can’t be like Manny in many ways that’s why we’re not bothered.”

“Everything is fine and great. That’s what all I can say. I don’t want to act rude with somebody but we lockout Manny’s training and I can’t discuss anything more to you about it. I know you people will understand it."

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;15451292]Floyd is bringing "Chop Chop" Corley and Zab Judah, among other southpaws. Pacquiao throws that split-left (thanks Lee Wylie) and not much else; [B]being hurky jerky outside of actual punch range does nothing.[/B] Corley throws a pretty good left hand,…

[QUOTE=mike1010011;15450052]To be honest,I don't t see Floyds benefits,in using Judah as a sparring partner. Alright,he's southpaw, so what? That'd like saying that Pacquiao should use any orthodox fighter to train for mayweather. Judah fights nothing like Manny,and at this point,I…
