Pacquiao - De La Hoya: Roach: Oscar Will Be Carrying a Suitcase Full of Blues on Dec. 6

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (November 20, 2008) -- Seer, soothsayer and two-time BWAA Trainer of the Year, World-Famous Freddie Roach, made another bold prediction at his Hollywood-based Wild Card Boxing Club, where he is training five-division world champion and No. 1 Pound-for-Pound fighter MANNY PACQUIAO for his 12-round welterweight super fight against “The Golden Boy” OSCAR DE LA HOYA..

“Oscar stated in his media conference call that training to fight Manny has put the fire back in his belly. If he thinks he has a fire in his belly now, wait until Manny starts landing right and left hooks there. Oscar’s belly will be a raging inferno,” Roach cooly stated. “I have never seen Manny look better. He is as close to a complete fighter as he has ever been. His speed, footwork and stamina are supreme. But it’s his power that has surpassed anything I could have hoped for. Manny is ready to fight a full three minutes of every round for as many rounds this fight goes. Oscar may look the part of a welterweight fighter by dieting down to a Twggy 145 pounds, but that doesn’t mean he can pull the trigger at his age and act the part of a welterweight fighter. Not against a Manny Pacquiao. Oscar will be carrying a suitcase full of blues when he enters his golden years of retirement as a fighter on December 6. But at least he’ll look fit and trim in his designer business suits.”

LOS ANGELES, CALIF.

Freddie Roach - 'Call Him Ishtar!'

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (November 18, 2008) – During his international media conference call yesterday, OSCAR DE LA HOYA stated that he would be “extremely disappointed” if his upcoming showdown with MANNY PACQUIAO did not end in a knockout. “It would be a total disaster. Pacquiao’s trainer, World-Famous Freddie Roach, empathized with The Golden Boy.

“Tell Oscar not to worry, the fight WILL end in a knockout. On December 6, Oscar’s going to think he’s back in the 1930’s when Manny airmails him into The Great Depression,” responded Roach. “I can see when the paperback version of Oscar’s autobiography comes out. It will begin by paraphrasing the opening line of Moby Dick. Only instead of starting with ‘Call me Ishmael,' it will be 'Call me Ishtar,’ one of the biggest box office flops in motion picture history. Mark my words he will flop too. Oscar can’t pull the trigger anymore. Losing all that weight doesn’t impress me. Twiggy is going to find out that looking the part is not equivalent to acting the part, a lesson Muhammad Ali learned when he fought Larry Holmes."


Roach Has a Receipe for Cooking Oscar's Golden Goose!

With less than three weeks to go until "D-Day" -- Manny Pacquiao's ring war with Oscar De La Hoya -- Pacquiao's gym general, World-Famous Freddie Roach, has cried fowl! "I’m glad to hear that Oscar’s diet has made him skinny," said Roach, from his Hollywood-based Wild Card Boxing Club. "The photos of him at his media day have him looking like boxing’s version of Twiggy! If Oscar thinks he has it tough skipping Thanksgiving to train for this fight, wait until Manny cooks his golden goose on December 6. Manny's recipe for success will have Oscar plucked and roasted within nine rounds.”
