Manny Pacquiao Fires Freddie Roach
Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach are no longer a team.
The Filipino multi-division champ (59-7-2) has decided that Restituto “Buboy” Fernandez, along with Raides “Nonoy” Neri, will be his trainers leading up to his July 14th welterweight title fight with Lucas Matthysse (39-4).
Pacquiao’s last fight with Roach was in early July of last year, when Pacquiao lost a highly controversial decision to Australia’s Jeff Horn.
Pacquiao was cut numerous times during the bout and felt the cuts were due to Horn headbutting him illegally.
