Glory awaits should Pacquiao defeat the teak-tough Puerto Rican. Pacquiao, already a major crossover star in Asia who intends to move into politics next year, will become the first boxer ever to win world titles in seven divisions.

Roach added that Cotto "will not be the same" since suffering an 11th-round technical knockout against Antonio Margarito in July 2008. "A fighter is never the same following a knockout like that. It takes time to recover from it. Our guy is getting him at the right time."

Roach, whom Pacquiao admits is like a father-figure to him, is adamant that the boxing community should celebrate Pacquiao's greatness.

"Henry Armstrong was the last to do that kind of thing," Roach told The Daily Telegraph. "Manny's a throwback. He's unbelievable. People ask me 'When are we going to see the next Manny Pacquiao?' We're not, not in my lifetime, or in your lifetime going to see another Manny Pacquiao. He's a one-off.

Fighters like him don't come around that often.

"Manny saved my life eight years ago. He walked into this gym, and an hour later I was his new trainer. A month later, he won his first world title [at flyweight] against Ledwaba. He's a guy who still wants to work so hard, and that makes it so much more enjoyable."

"Manny now has great power, great speed. And he's now a very dangerous guy. He's a machine. You wind him up, you let him go. He's so different now. He's gone from 112lbs to 147lbs and yet he is still being competitive. It's incredible."
