The legendary boxing duo have now being properly reunited in LA as Pacquiao returned to the famous world destination this week to conclude final preparations ahead of his January 19th showdown in Las Vegas.
When Manny Pacquiao first went to the US it was Freddie Roach and the Wild Card gym where he began to really make his name as a world wide star in the sport and perhaps it’s fitting that he returns there as his career winds down in the next year or two.
The two were temporarily separated for PacMan’s last fight but as this video shows from the folks at Villainfy Media — the pair are back together once again and are on very good terms:
Good to see the legendary pair back together and working once again.
Both Roach and Buboy Fernandes had long both being a part of the Pacquiao team as coaches anyway, it’s just now the latter will take Pacquiao on the pads more at the wish of the boxer due to Freddie being a bit older now.
Not long to go until fight fans see Pacquiao back boxing in America again and also for the first time according to reports, now boxing live on free television in the UK as part of Al Haymon’s new deal struck with ITV.
Potentially January 19th will be one of the widest audiences Pacquiao’s fights has ever reached in the UK if the fight is on regular ITV as opposed to pay per view.
Details of this should be confirmed over the holiday period or in very early January.
