Mayweather-Pacquiao is a battle of Evil against Good
“Manny is really against domestic violence,” Freddie Roach said. “It is a big issue maybe in the
Philippines for him and being a congressman he can control some of that stuff.
“That is a big plus for me that Manny does not like the guy, I think the killer instinct is going to come back a lot faster.”
Pacquiao and Mayweather are scheduled to fight on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Mayweather has a checkered past that includes multiple brushes with the law. He was incarcerated in Las Vegas for two months in 2012 for a misdemeanor domestic battery case, in which Mayweather engaged in a hair-pulling, arm-
twisting attack on his former girlfriend, Josie Harris, while two of their three children watched.
“It is really hard to say these things in public, but I know [Mayweather] is a bad guy,” Roach said.
“[I see the fight as] good against evil, yes. I have even
thought about bringing a couple of the metro cops from Vegas in to tell Manny how many times [Mayweather] has been arrested and how bad of a guy he is, but I decided Ican’t go that far. He already doesn’t like him; I think we are OK.
“For the first time in my life with Manny Pacquiao, this is the first fighter he hasn’t liked. I can tell.”
