Roach, Bute, Ramirez and Jones Hit Camp Pacquiao

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

It seems like celebrated trainer Freddie Roach has moved to the Pacman Gym in General Santos City as he was in a party of eleven persons including "Fighter of the Decade" Manny Pacquiao's sparring partners and fighters that Roch is training for upcoming fights.

One of the two lanky fighters in the mold of undefeated WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri, Stan "The Man" Martyniouk arrived but the other sparring partner of Pacquiao, Viktor Postol was delayed and is expected to arrive soon.

Also in the Roach entourage were welterweight Mike Jones (26-2, 19 KO's) , Mexican super featherweight Jose Ramirez (25-4, 15 KO's) and IBF super middleweight Lucian Bute (31-2, 24 KO's).

Assistant trainer Bubof Fernandez told Standard that Pacquiao has been training hard and is excited about his showdown with Algieri but he was not certain who Roach will use as sparring partners aside from Martyniouk and Postol.

29 year old Stan “The Man” Martyniouk, who wound up his sparring stint with WBA featherweight champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is a 29 year old lightweight with a record of 13-2 with 2 knockouts and is from Estonia but is now an American citizen.

In his last fight on August 9, Martyniouk dropped an eight round split decision to unbeaten Ivan Najera after earlier winning an eight round unanimous decision over former Pacquiao sparring partner David Rodela on July 20, 2013.

An outstanding amateur Martyniouk who stands around 5’10” won a bronze medal at the National Golden Gloves championships in 2007.

30 year old Viktor Postol from Ukraine is the unbeaten WBC light welterweight Silver champion and stands 5’11”.

Postol (26-0, 11KOs) won the WBC title with a rousing 11th round TKO over tough Selcuk Aydin when referee Raul Caiz Jr stopped the contest at 2:52 of the penultimate round on May 17, 2014. He is currently ranked No. 1 by the WBC and No. 7 by the WBO.

[QUOTE=danthepup;15008839]Manny vs Provodnikov I would buy. I don't care that Ruslan didn't get the decision against Algerie, it would just be so much more of an interesting match up. This is a no win for Pac. Even if he starches…
