“We’re preparing him to put up an unrelenting attack from the opening bell until his hands are raised in victory,” Roach confided. “And it looks like Manny’s responding well to our program.”

"This is my first time on pay-per-view and to be the co-main event is very exciting. Thanks to everyone who got me to this place.
