Freddie Roach: "Lomachenko is good at moving around the ring, but Pacquiao is better"

2018.08.16

Freddie Roach, 16 years of training legendary Filipino Manny Pacquiao, believes that the potential duel of his former ward against world champion in lightweight Vasily Lomachenko should turn out to be interesting. According to preliminary data, this meeting could be held early next year.

"I like the potential fight of Manny against Lomachenko. Lomachenko knows how to move around the ring well, but Manny does it better. The younger generation is growing up, and Manny is not getting younger, so he needs to choose his opponents cautiously. He still has the strength to show a good boxing, as he did in the fight against Matisse. He showed good leg work, and looked like the good old Manny Pacquiao, "said Freddie Roach.
