In the past, trainer Freddie Roach has suggested Manny Pacquiao might be the only fighter capable of beating Floyd Mayweather.
But Pacquiao might not get that chance if he struggles against Timothy Bradley on Saturday night, at least not if Roach has any say.
"If he looks bad, he retires," Roach told Associated Press columnist Tim Dahlberg. "At least I'll tell him to. And he may be the first one who will listen to me."
Roach's concern stems from Pacquiao's…

Roach told the Associated Press “If he [Pacquiao] looks bad, he retires. At least I’ll tell him to, And he may be the first one to listen to me.”
I don’t think for a second that Pacquiao will retire if he gets beaten by Bradley, even if he really does listen to Roach and like the idea. The problem is Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum will likely resist the idea of his biggest money maker hanging up his gloves permanently, I can see him persuading Pacquiao to fight on, albeit against…

“You got a 43-year old throwing everything he could at. We took the first five rounds straight. We split the rest, and we lose? This is what’s wrong in the sport. Tarver knows bit off more he can chew. He ate punches. His eye was all swollen, and if he thought he won the fight, then he wouldn’t come forward all desperate in the 12th. But you know what? I’m proud of my kid. He could’ve gone another two or three rounds if he had, too. He grew up in there.”
In his postfight…

Mosley told RingTV “When the kids start beating you up, maybe it’s time to start promoting.”
Mosley plans on working as a promoter from now on. He’s made enough money to never have to work again just from his loss to Manny Pacquiao last year, but he’s not one to sit and do nothing with his life.
Mosley’s friend Hassan Abdulrahim told RingTV “Shane Mosley has officially retired, and he’s going to go into the promotional side of the sport.”

Ward said “I know a lot of people are happy Floyd is going to jail today, but guilty or not this is nothing to be happy or parade about. Some will attempt to twist what I said about Floyd, but I don’t condone wrong of any kind. What is wrong is gloating over a man’s failure.”
