    Freddie Roach dying for a rematch for Pacquiao, but Mayweather non-committal

    May 3, 2015

    LAS VEGAS – Freddie Roach once again came up short of dealing Floyd Mayweather his first ever career loss.

    But given another opportunity, the seven-time Trainer of the Year is more than willing to face the challenge of trying to unlock the mystery behind Mayweather’s perfect record.

    “We love to do it again,” said Roach after Manny Pacquiao lost to Mayweather by unanimous decision on Saturday at the MGM Grand here to give up the 147-lbs World Boxing Organization (WBO) version of the welterweight title.

    Despite Floyd Jr. outpunching and outsmarting Pacquiao, Roach remains proud of how the legendary Filipino boxer fought against a rival considered as the best in the world today pound-for-pound.

    “He (Pacquiao) fought a good fight. I thought he hurt his opponent two times and landed some several good combinations,” said Roach.

    This marked the second time the 55-year-old Roach failed to solve the Mayweather puzzle after failing in his initial attempt eight years ago when he worked the corner of Oscar De La Hoya in a split decision loss to ‘The Money Man.’

    Mayweather, however, remains uncommittal.

    “All I want now is to rest,” he said when asked if he’d love to face Pacquiao in the ring again in yet another rich boxing event such as this one.

    “I want to go home and relax, enjoy time with my family,” said the American bronze medalist of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. “I’m not thinking about Manny Pacquiao right now.”
