After some misunderstanding, looks like American boxing trainer Freddie Roach and his favorite ward Manny Pacman Pacquiao are now friends again.
In his Instagram post, Roach revealed that he will be on Pacquiao’s corner when the Filipino boxing superstar face Adrien Broner on January 19,2019 in the United States. Roach said his recent face to face meeting with Pacquiao resolve whatever misunderstanding they have in the past.
“Manny reached out directly. We sat together one on one. I’ll be in his corner Jan 19.” read an Instagram post from Roach with a photo of Pacquiao. Pacquiao won the WBA (regular) Welterweight World Championship with a TKO win over Lucas Mattyhsse in July of 2018 without the services of Roach.
Having Roach on his corner is a huge help for Pacquiao since Broner is a tough American boxer. If Pacquiao beat Broner next year, his next possible bout will be against undefeated American boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr.
