“Barrera can’t outsmart or outfight Manny Pacquiao. So what he’s going to do is he’s going to use his head,” said Roach who had warned his boxer of possible head butt – accidental or otherwise.
“I just have the better fighter,” he continued. “But Manny Pacquiao is such a gentleman, such a sportsman that if he gets head-butt, he doesn’t head-butt back. That’s just his nature. That’s how he is as a fighter,”
A member of Team Pacquiao said he believes “there’s nothing Barrera can do legally that Manny Pacquiao can’t do better.”
After Pacquiao closed out his daily workout at the Wild Card Gym here, Roach took a swing at Barrera when the trainer was reminded of a very recent statement from the native of Guadalajara.
“Look what he did to Oscar (dela Hoya)? He made Oscar lose,” Barrera was quoted as saying how bad Roach, to his mind, was in Dela Hoya’s recent loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
