ROACH: NOT SURE IF MANNY IS MAD AT ME – I HAVENT BEEN PAID

It seems all is not well in the Pacquiao Camp, Hall of Fame Trainer Freddy Roach recently telling media that Manny Pacquiao wouldn’t say two words to him in the aftermath of his upset loss at the hands of Australia Jeff Horn.

Pacquiao lost a unanimous decision to the unfancied Horn by scores of 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

“I was trying to see where his head was at, and I could not even get him to say hi to me. I don’t know if he was upset with me or what,” Roach told Sports Illustrated.

“I really don’t know if he’s mad at me. But I can tell you this: I haven’t been paid yet. So who knows?”

Roach was vocal in his beliefs that should Pacquiao lose to Horn it may be time to call an end to his glittering career, but now wonders if this is the reason for the silent treatment.

“Maybe that’s what he thought I was there to tell him,” Roach says. “But I wouldn’t pick that moment. There were a lot of people. I wouldn’t embarrass anybody like that. He was definitely avoiding me.”

Roach went on to give his feelings on a Pacquiao performance which he hasn’t seen in over ten years.

“Manny wasn’t himself. He didn’t look like the Manny Pacquiao I’ve known for a long time. It was almost over in the ninth. One more round like that and, man … he just couldn’t do it,” Roach says.
