Without being rude about it or overly dismissive of Floyd Mayweather Jr., hall-of-fame trainer Freddie Roach tells RingTV.com that his fighter, Manny Pacquiao, has the ability to not only beat – but knockout – the undefeated American favorite on May 2.
Gennady Golovkin, who defends his WBA middleweight title against Martin Murray today, is on a mission to collect all of the major 160-pound belts this year, including THE RING and WBC titles held by Miguel Cotto. Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez and Cotto’s trainer Freddie Roach are already talking about the potential showdown.
Talks are ongoing for junior welterweight bout between Ruslan Provodnikov and Lucas Matthysse at the StubHub Center on March 28. Seemingly, Provodnikov couldn’t be happier with the notion.

Should a mega-bout between RING middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez not become a reality, there are other options, according to Cotto’s adviser.
Trainer Virgil Hunter fully believes his charge, Amir Khan is ready to make a run at titlists Floyd Mayweather Jr., Kell Brook and Manny Pacquiao.
Having done the figurative dance with Floyd Mayweather Jr. before, Manny Pacquiao says he’s willing to see the undefeated pound-for-pounder get the money he wants to make their fight a reality.
If a fight between Canelo Alvarez and RING middleweight champion Miguel Cotto can’t be made, it won’t hurt WBA titlist Gennady Golovkin’s feelings. He’ll face either fighter.
Responding to Freddie Roach’s recent statement that Miguel Cotto would kick Gennady Golovkin’s ass, Abel Sanchez, the trainer of the undefeated WBA middleweight titleholder, told RingTV.com that the Puerto Rican star wouldn’t last more than five rounds if he faced GGG.

Freddie Roach says once his charge, Manny Pacquiao dispatches Chris Algieri this Saturday, a match with RING junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia could materialize.
Should a tentative defense of his middleweight championship against Canelo Alvarez prove successful, Miguel Cotto could meet Gennady Golovkin later in 2015.
