Roger Mayweather talking that talk
By Chris Robinson
While he will never be confused for a diehard Manny Pacquiao fan, veteran trainer and former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather has seemed to gain a little bit of respect for the Filipino icon in recent times.
Pacquiao is fresh off of a 12-round blitzing of gritty but outmatched Chris Algieri in Macau, China this past weekend and Roger feels that the eight-division champion from General Santos City is ready for a crack at the man regarded as the best fighter in the world, his nephew Floyd.
“Aint he ready?” Roger asked. “He’s ready to get in with Floyd now isn’t he? He had a big win.”
Asked how that match would play out, Roger is sticking to the same story, that being a loss from Pacquiao.
“He was going to get the same thing he was going to get the first time,” stated Roger.
Roger feels the match should happen simply because it’s the fight that everyone is still talking about.
“Pacquiao deserves the fight,” Roger said. “Pacquiao’s had good wins. That’s one of the biggest fights that people talk about. I think that the fight should happen.”
