IKINAKASA: PACQUIAO-MAYWEATHER 2

GUSTO ni boxing trainer Freddie Roach na matuloy ang Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather rematch matapos ang laban ng Pambansang Kamao kontra kay Keith Thurman sa Las Vegas sa Hulyo 20.

Ayon kay Roach, hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin maalis sa isip niya ang pagkatalo ni Pacquiao kay Mayweather sa tinaguriang “Fight of the Century” ng dalawa noong 2015.

Pagkatapos ng naturang laban lang inamin ni Pacquiao na may iniinda siyang shoulder injury kaya’t hindi gaanong nakaporma sa 12-round defeat niya kay Mayweather, na agad din nagretiro nang walang talo.

Nagretiro rin si Pacquiao noong 2016 ngunit makaraan lang ang ilang buwan ay nagdesisyong muling lumaban, at ngayo’y nakatakdang sumabak kontra isa pang American undefeated boxer na si Thurman para sa inaasam na World Boxing Association welterweight crown.

Kumpiyansa si Roach na mananalo si Pacquiao laban kay Thurman at umaasang maging daan ito upang makumbinsi si Mayweather na makipag-rematch sa Pinoy champ.

“Hopefully we can get Mayweather to come to the table,” ani Roach sa mga reporter na nagpunta sa Wild Card gym kahapon. “I would like us to have one more crack at him.”

“We didn’t fight a great fight that night. Manny’s shoulder didn’t help at all. He’s had surgery since then, he’s 100 percent now.

“I would like us to fight Mayweather again because I didn’t like the way we performed. I was disappointed in myself,” sabi pa ni Roach.

Iginiit naman ni Pacquiao na hindi niya iniisip si Mayweather sa ngayon, hanggang nananatili itong retired sa boksing.

“Floyd is retired. I am only looking at active fighters. Floyd is not active anymore,” ani Pacquiao. “Right now I’m only thinking about Thurman.”
