Freddie Roach 'hurt' after split from Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao Addresses

In a brief statement, Roach said his 16-year association with former world champion Pacquiao had been terminated ahead of the 39-year-old fighter's upcoming world title fight with Lucas Matthysse.

Things didn't look good after their last fight together - a defeat to Australian Jeff Horn - with Roach mentioning afterwards that he thought his fighter might be mad at him.

A press release last week intimated that Roach would not be involved in the fight.

Since then, Pacquiao and Roach have partnered and scored many unforgettable wins, notably against Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Shane Mosley, Erik Morales, Marco Antonio Barrera and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Registering Eligible Students to Vote
Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is encouraging all Kentuckians eligible to register to vote by the deadline, April 23. Voters who have recently moved will need to update their registration information no later than April 23, 2018.

He added: "My adviser, Mike Koncz, has been in contact with Freddie's people to keep them informed".

Roach said being able to help Pacquiao again for the fight against Matthysse, "would be nice".

The drama surrounding the break-up of one of boxing's most successful partnerships comes on the same week when Pacquiao and Matthyse begin the promotional tour of their 12-round fight, the biggest to be held in the Malaysian capital since the late great Muhammad Ali decisioned Joe Bugner for the world heavyweight championship of the world in June 1975.

When Roach was informed about Friday's announcement, he issued his own statement and took the high road.

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach has yet to be given his walking papers, eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao said yesterday in his social media account.

"Manny and I had a great run for 15 years - longer than most marriages and certainly a rarity for boxing", Roach said. I wouldn't trade any of it.

"I would be lying if I didn't say I wasn't hurt that he didn't contact me personally about his decision", Roach said in a statement. And Roach, for the first time since Pacquiao's 2001 United States debut, will not be in his corner.

It is widely thought that 2018 will be the final time Manny Pacquiao steps into the pro boxing ring. "But I will defend my title with honor and represent my country, Argentina, with pride".
