Trainer Freddie Roach Confirms He Over-trains Manny Pacquiao

Freddie Roach admits that Manny Pacquiao was over trained for his bout against Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez last Saturday in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao had underwent a 10-week training camps for the trilogy bout against Marquez, longer than his usual 8-week training camps.

Pacquiao’s Team said the boxer was having one of his best training camps in his career. But Pacquiao struggled in his match against Marquez, escaping with a controversial majority decision victory.

Roach said that was a bad night and he over trained him and it won’t happen again.

Roach remained confident that Pacquiao will be able to beat another one of boxing’s great counter-punchers, the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr., despite his recent struggle.
