Boxing coach Freddie Roach still wants that Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch for Manny Pacquiao, believing that the outcome would be very much different now that the Filipino is in good health.
“I would like Manny to fight him again. I’d like Manny to have one more fight — that is no secret,” said the hall-of-fame trainer in Boxing Scene.
The two fighters have already engaged in a highly lucrative bout last year with Pacquiao losing by unanimous decision. But the Filipino blamed his defeat to a bum shoulder, which he had healed since.
Pacquiao came back into the ring injury-free a year later and dominated Timothy Bradley.
But Roach admitted it would be hard to pull the Filipino back into the ring, especially now that he has been elected as a Philippine senator.
