Roach wants Pacquiao vs. Robert Guerrero

Trainer Freddie Roach says that WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley isn’t a fight that Manny Pacquiao is excited about. He feels that he already beat Bradley in their fight last year, and doesn’t think the fight will bring in big pay-per-view numbers either.

With Bradley asking for more money than they’re willing to pay, Roach says that he’d like to see Pacquiao fight Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero if that fight could be made. Roach thinks it would give Pacquiao a good opportunity to show what he an against a fighter that was able to go the full 12 rounds against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last year in May in Guerrero’s lopsided 12 round unanimous decision loss.

If Pacquiao could stop Guerrero and beat him badly, then it could lead to a Mayweather fight for Pacquiao, Roach says.

Boxing Needs To Move On From Mayweather

It’s time for boxing to move beyond Floyd Mayweather.

There, it’s been said. The man is indeed great, perhaps one of the greatest of all time. No matter. A fighter who no longer wishes to challenge himself, one who no longer aspires to prove himself against the top competition in the business, should no longer be considered dominant.

The caveat here is that Mayweather may indeed surprise us all in the weeks and months ahead. We may all be stunned to learn that he’s going to fight Pacquiao. Or Bradley. Or Golovkin. If that happens, please ignore everything you’ll have read in this article.

Virgil Hunter: Amir Khan can 'shock' Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Calling Amir Khan "a horse that can run that race," trainer Virgil Hunter believes that the former two-belt junior welterweight titlewinner "can shock the world" if he is chosen to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 3.

"Amir's going to have to be capable of doing a number of things at different times. He's going to have to be able to stay within the flow of the fight and to anticipate and feel the flow of the fight and to make the necessary adjustments at any given moment," Hunter said about his fighter's chances against the pound-for-pound king. "Amir is going to have to put it together and to be clicking on all cylinders, and if he does, then he can shock the world.

"I have respect for Floyd Mayweather. I see him as being the No. 1 fighter in the world, but I want to win. At the same time, he has my respect, even though I want to win. I'm not coming into this fight just to be part of the Floyd Mayweather sweepstakes, I'm coming into this fight to win, and I know that I have the horse that can run that race. It's going to be a fight that's going to really surprise the boxing world."

Manny Pacquiao numbers coming in

The return of welterweight star Manny Pacquiao, who outpointed former lightweight titlist Brandon Rios in a lopsided decision on Nov. 23 in Macau, China, generated in the neighborhood of 500,000 pay-per-view buys, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told on Wednesday.

"The numbers are coming in like we expected," Arum said. "There was a little delay because of Thanksgiving, but it will be somewhere in the area of 500,000 buys. We ran all our numbers on something a little less than 500,000 but figuring we'd do around 500,000, and that's what we're going to wind up doing. It means 490,000 or 510,000, something like that."

The fight, the first HBO PPV card ever done outside the United States, generated approximately $30 million in domestic pay-per-view revenue. However, there are some in the boxing industry who claim the fight didn't crack 400,000 buys.
