Freddie Roach is not only a world class trainer, but he is a world class hype man. Roach understands the advantages his fighters “NEED!” Leading up to the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao showdown, Roach knows his fighter, Manny Pacquiao, needs to have his undefeated opponent off of his game in a big way, so Roach is tossing out shark size bait to see if Floyd Mayweather Jr. will bite.
Roach believes Mayweather’s greatest weakness is pyschological. “I want to get inside his head a little bit, because he’s not a secure person. He’s very fragile. He’s really insecure.”…Freddie Roach.
Since the fight was announced in late February, Roach has had many things to say to get inside of Floyd Mayweather’s head. Here are some highlights:
“Floyd’s moves are good but predictable”
“I’ve watched his father in the corner. He stutters, has trouble staying calm and can’t get words out.”
“Floyd is crazy about that zero.”
