Freddie Roach is very confident that he’s figured out Mayweather’s weaknesses and that he’s preparing Manny Pacquiao to capitalise on every one of them.
Roach says he has several sparring partners lined up for Manny’s camp but one is a “secret weapon.”
No, I got the guys that I wanted. We selected good young fighters, undefeated fighters. We got one kid from Finland, he’s 24-1. We got one kid from Chicago, he’s 8-0. We had one kid from Boston but he didn’t work out, he can’t make it so we guy a guy from St. Louis.
I brought some great young kids to box, I’ve got too many actually. I got six really good guys that all look like Mayweather and I have one that I’m gonna use in the last two weeks is one that used to work at Mayweather’s gym and was part of Mayweather’s camp. He does the style really well, he’s my secret weapon right now, he’s my secret weapon right now. He’s staying at my house, we talk about strategy all night long, we watch film all night long and he said that Mayweather had disrespected him and they kind of just threw him aside, so I took him on.
Roach seems to think that secret weapon will make all of the difference come May 2nd. Good luck with that.
