Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach held an international media conference call Wednesday morning, ten days in advance of the November 23 PPV clash between Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios in Macau, China.
Freddie Roach: We need to look impressive in this fight and we’re doing everything possible to do that…I feel like Manny is going to outbox this guy and he’ll knock him out inside of six…We see [Rios] wearing plastics all the time because he has to lose weight. He’s moving from 140 to 147 and he still has to lose weight. That tells you what kind of discipline he has and I think we’re gonna take advantage of that…Manny’s in great shape and we’re ready to fight right now at this moment. He’s already below weight, so he’ll have breakfast and lunch before the weigh-in and Rios won’t. We’ll see Rios in the ring and see who the best guy is.
