A fight that could rival the upcoming 'PacWeather' match may surface when Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach and Floyd, Jr's uncle and trainer Roger Mayweather continue their own fight version off the ring while both trainers are devising fight plans.
While Bob Arum and Richard Schaefer are still working on the finishing touches of the proposed Pacquiao-Mayweather match, Pacquiao's coach Freddie Roach and Roger Mayweather, Floyd's uncle and trainer, have started their own word war three months before fight night.
Speaking exclusively to The Telegraph, Freddie Roach sent out a warning that he will come to blows with Roger Mayweather, the uncle and trainer of the fighter Floyd Mayweather Jnr, if Mayweather indulges in abusive insults in the lead-in to the superfight next year. Mayweather was quoted this week as saying his man will deliver a boxing lesson to Pacquiao when they meet.
Freddie Roach and the Mayweathers have a long history of animosity and dislike for each other whenever they go about their respective roles off the ring.
Roach says he understands Floyd Sr., the father of undefeated American boxer, Floyd Maweather, Jr.as he knows him to be a poetic person but also indulges in little trash talks. It is Roger, the uncle of Floyd, Jr. that Freddie cannot get along well.
Roger is a trash talker according to Roach. Roger puts people down even if they cannot no longer defend themselves because they have passed away.
Roach says Roger is disrespectful and if he has reach a point where he can no longer take his trash talks, he will have a fight in his hands.
The Mayweathers have been continuously attacking Pacquiao and Roach since the Filipino boxer fought and won over Oscar de la Hoya. Mayweather. Sr. dismissed Pacquiao's boxing prowess after the pound-for-pound king demolished de la Hoya, saying that Oscar was dehydrated when he faced Pacquiao.
When Pacquiao won Ricky Hatton in the second round of their recent fight in Las Vegas, Mayweather, Sr. who was Hatton's trainer and coach, said Pacquiao was into 'some enhancement drugs' and pointed to it as the reason why Pacquiao was winning over superior boxers.
The Mayweatther trash talks continues as Little Floyd tries to preserve his 'zero' professional boxing record with his imminent collision with the Filipino boxing superstar.
Boxing fans await the 'word war' which may get physical if Roger Mayweather continues his tirades over the famously awarded trainer and coach.
