Roach sets eight-week camp for Pacman

FREDDIE ROACH THINKS MANNY PACQUIAO is in for a tough fight against Miguel Cotto on Nov. 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

But the famed trainer also feels that his prized ward will come out the winner of the fight set at a catch weight of 145 pounds.

Pacquiao, the International Boxing Organization light welterweight titlist, has been installed as an early 2-1 favorite over Cotto, the World Boxing Organization welterweight champion.

Roach said he plans to conduct at least an eight-week training camp for Pacquiao at his Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.

The serious buildup starts after the fight’s press tour calendared in Los Angeles (Sept. 9), New York (Sept. 10) and San Juan, Puerto Rico, (Sept. 12).

Noting Pacquiao’s impressive wins in his last two fights, an eight-round stoppage of Oscar De La Hoya and a two-round demolition of Ricky Hatton, Roach told Brad Cooney of 8countnews.com via podcast on Tuesday that he’s very confident the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter will emerge victorious over the Puerto Rican.

Cotto was described by Roach as a “solid fighter and a game guy who likes to fight,” adding that Pacquiao has to deal with the Puerto Rican’s perceived built-in advantage in size and strength.

This early, Roach said he wants to watch tapes of Cotto’s previous fights, specifically his triumph over Shane Mosley, to come up with a game plan.

“We’ll be ready for this fight,” Roach said.
