Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting HOLLYWOOD—A rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is highly possible.The affable Freddie Roach said there’s a strong chance there will be repeat of the 2015 “Battle for Greatness” between boxing’s standard bearers.ADVERTISEMENT “Hopefully that happens, if not there’s a lot of guys out there who are big names, but Mayweather’s my first choice,” added Roach, who acts as consultant for the Jan. 19 WBA world welterweight fight at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.Broner is likened to Mayweather in terms of his being a defensive, counter-punching fighter. But that doesn’t bother Roach.“He’s a counter-puncher and doesn’t come to us much, he’s the type of guy that sucks you in,” said Roach. “But we’ve dealt with that before, I mean he’s not our favorite type of fighter.”But what keeps Roach’s hope afloat was the fact that Pacquiao himself told him he’s going for a knockout.“He told me he’s gonna knock this guy out, he’s never said that to me in my life. So I’m happy where’s his head right now. If a knockout comes it’s good but I’m happy that he wants a knockout because that means he’s got his killer instinct back,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT Younghusbands’ dilemma LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño LATEST STORIES SEA Games hosting troubles anger Dutertelast_img read more

Every time I need him for anything or I see him at the game we always spend a lot of time together and have a good chat.“After the game I went to his office in the stadium and spoke for a few hours, watching football and chatting about the old days, my new life and family.Aliadiere, who had spells on loan at Celtic, West Ham and Wolves during his time at Arsenal, is currently living with his family in London following a stint at French side Lorient.He admits that he hasn’t been in regular contact with Wenger but praises for the Frenchman for his man management skills, dubbing him “the best coach and manager” he has ever had.“It’s a strange one because I don’t see him or talk to him often but when we do see eachother then we’re just happy to have a chat. He said to me ‘you’re welcome to come to London Colney anytime you want, to train or do whatever’. Now that I’m back in the UK and living here I’ll probably go there and keep touch with him.“He’s the best coach and manager [I’ve ever had]. Some people are really good coaches but not very good man managers but he’s an all rounder. He knows how to treat his players and get the best out of them.”last_img read more
