Floyd’s not invincible – Roach

Manny Pacquiao

LOS ANGELES – Despite his pristine 47-0 record, Floyd Mayweather “is not invincible,” according Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach.

Pacquiao is facing Mayweather on May 2 in Las Vegas and Roach believes the US fighter managed to remain undefeated because he “chose and pick fights.”

“He ducked a lot of guys. There were three or four fighters he didn’t want to fight,” noted the 55-year-old Roach, who has been Pacquiao’s cornerman since 2001.

Roach said he doesn’t fear Mayweather and neither does Pacquiao, who is a 2-1 underdog in the scheduled 12-round welterweight unification bout at the MGM Grand.

“Mayweather was forced into this fight…he didn’t want this fight.”

Roach said Pacquiao has what it takes to knock Mayweather out and even if Mayweather is the favored guy, he is looking forward to seeing his fighter expose the 38-year-old Detroit native.

“Five years ago, we would have fgaced lots of problems with this guy but this time, we’re going to knock him out,” added Roach.

Pacquiao is in the thick of training and will actually kick off the sparring phase of his buildup this Tuesday.

Mayweather, meanwhile, is also right on target in Sin City as he reports say that he has been terrorizing his sparring partners.
