Why Roach is trash talking…

Would a battery run when it has the same polarity? Do opposites attract?

Freddie Roach the renowned coach of Manny Pacquiao has already created a buzz against his former boxer Oscar De La Hoya. Roach is vocal on Oscar’s not pulling the trigger anymore… Oscar is not the same Golden boy we knew and love… and Manny Pacquiao the reigning lightweight champion will knock him out on their Dec.6 encounter.
Freddie Roach is talking trashed and somewhere along the line made quite an impression among boxing fans.
Oscar De La Hoya has been on the downside lately at age 35 his reflexes and his power has slowly diminished. There were proven rumors unleashed by Freddie Roach that the real reason for Victor Ortiz going home early as Oscar’s sparring mate was that Oscar got a beating from Victor who was also Manny’s sparring partner way back then. Oscar sported a black eye during their HBO 24/7 premiere episode and you can’t help but wonder if the rumor was true.
Freddie Roach divulged also from the net that during their training camp on Oscar’s fight with Mayweather he tapped the services of the 108 lbs fighter Ivan Calderon to test Oscar’s speed and in return he received a ton of slapping from Ivan with Oscar no close in hurting the 5.0 ft. flat Puerto Rican.
We could never knew the outcome of the Pacquiao- De La Hoya fight for now but it’s sure is getting hot with Roach and Oscar exchanging verbal jabs.
Manny and Oscar are pure gentle men and trash talking is not their forte that’s why they let Freddie Roach do the talking…
So why is Roach trash talking? Would you watch a movie with two leading actors and no arch enemy the whole time… now that would be so damn boring…
