Freddie Roach wants Pacquiao-Mayweather 2

Gunnar Nelson

Pacquiao's longtime trainer Freddie Roach still looks forward to the Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch because he knows Pacquiao is capable of beating Mayweather with two good hands, referring to Pacquiao's right shoulder injury which happened before and during the fight.

McGregor, though, has already signed his terms for a fight with Mayweather.

After five successful title defences, the 29-year-old looks to emulate the UFC's undisputed top rated star Conor McGregor, by moving up to the proposed women's flyweight division next year and hold two different weight titles.

"Pacquiao has a tough fight, really, against a guy in Australia, Jeff Horn".

As Mayweather eyes a return to action in September against Conor McGregor, Roach believes a crushing defence of his welterweight title could potentially give Pacquiao the fight he wants most.

The planned McGregor-Mayweather bout drew criticism from boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, saying boxing will not recover from it once the fight pushes through.

Demonetization effect? GDP growth at 6.1% in Q4 of 2016-17
The gross value added number rose 6.6 percent, but lower than 7.9 percent clocked in the previous financial year (2015-16). The weak GDP data will be a setback for Prime Minister Narendra Modi , who completed three years in office last week.

Arum told TMZ Sports on Sunday that McGregor should consider Pacquiao as an opponent if Mayweather were to back out.

Talks about a McGregor fight swirled even as Pacquiao and Roach welcomed the arrival of a new sparmate from Mexico: Adrian Young. The condition would be for Mayweather to fight toe-to-toe with Pacquiao for at least six of the 12 rounds assuming the fights goes the distance.

Conor McGregor does get made, don't expect the sport's governing bodies to immediately sanction the fight.

"I'm looking to please all the fans and the way to do that is score a knockout". "That is what I'm telling Manny, he should be impressive", he added.
