DAKO ang pagtuo ni Hall-of-Fame boxing trainer Freddie Roach nga mahinayon gyud ang mega-fight tali ni Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao ug unbeaten American Floyd Mayweather Jr. karong Septiyembre.

Si interview sa The Sweet Science, si Roach mipadayag nga ang mga nagkalainlaing isyu nga nakababat sa Pacquiao-Mayweather fight lakip na ang kataha ni Floyd Jr. nga makig-ayuda sa promoter ni Pacquiao nga si Bob Arum – mahatagan ra og kasulbaran.

“I think we’re closer and closer to a Mayweather fight. It’s only rumors now, but I think the rumors will come true,” padayag ni Roach. “I don’t think either Manny or Mayweather has anywhere else to go.”


Sa nasayran, si Mayweather subling mipadungog sa publiko nga wa siyay intensiyon nga makigkumboya ni Arum sa usa ka promotion.

Buot ipasabot nga di gyud mahitabo ang maong away kon si Pacquiao magpabilin gihapon ubos sa promotion ni Arum.

Apan alang ni Roach nga andam si Arum nga mosugot sa maong kon­disyon og kon si Pacquiao na mismo ang mohangyo niini.

“Manny has time left in his contract, but I think if he calls Bob and tells Bob what he wants – and that’s Mayweather – then Bob will give him what he wants,” panahom ni Roach. “Bob will let him go do that fight.”

“You’ve got to give the fans what they want, and most important, you as the promoter have to give the fighter what he wants,” dugang niya. “I think Arum, being the promoter and the professional that he is, will give Manny that fight.”

Si Mayweather gika­takdang moaway karong Mayo ug Septiyembre ka­­rong tuiga. Gusto ni Roach nga mahitabo ang away sa Septiyembre.

“I’m pushing for it,” ingon niya. “I’m gonna call Manny… all he has to do is call Bob, tell him who he wants – Mayweather, and I think it’ll get done.”
