Freddie Roach and the ‘multi-coloured’ protector cup

Pacquiao vs Cotto Online Live Streaming
Freddie Roach, the ace American trainer of Manny Pacquiao, has already voiced his concern over possible low blows from Miguel Cotto in the super-fight in Las Vegas on November 14.

The business around protector cups is serious indeed, although Roach once recalled a lighter moment relating to when he was in James Toney’s corner some years ago.

Roach told the story during an interview in Johannesburg in May 2004, when he was here with Virgil Hill. He said he arrived in Las Vegas with Toney to fight Evander Holyfield in October 2003 – having forgotten Toney’s protector cup in Los Angeles. Toney was unaware of the missing kit!

Roach bumped into Hill and asked to borrow his cup for Toney, but the problem was that Hill’s was a different colour to Toney’s. “One was red and the other green,” Roach told me in the interview, “but I hoped he wouldn’t notice, that he’d be preoccupied with the fight. In the dressing room I tossed it to him and he looked at it and said: ‘what the f*** is this?’”

Toney, wearing the cup, stopped Holyfield in the ninth round. After the fight, when Roach told him who the cup belonged to, Toney joked: “I hope I didn’t catch something.”

Hill didn’t want the cup back and it ended up in Roach’s Hollywood gym.
