Roach content with 2 sparmates for Pacquiao

/ 10:20 PM November 07, 2013

Satisfied with what he has seen thus far, chief trainer Freddie Roach has called off a plan to bring in unbeaten Thai welterweight Teerachai Kratingdaeggym (22-0, 16 KOs) as additional sparring partner for Manny Pacquiao.

Briton Liam Vaughan and Filipino light welterweight Dan Nazareno Jr. will be the only practice foes of Pacquiao for the rest of the camp leading to his fight with Brandon Rios on Nov. 24 in Macau.


Vaughan (8-1, 2 KOs) and Nazareno (17-10, 13 KOs) again felt the sting of Pacquiao’s punches in yesterday’s sparring session at Wild Card Gym in Gen. Santos City. They would have welcomed a replacement.

“Freddie sees no need for a new one with the way Manny has been performing,” Nonoy Neri told the Inquirer.


According to Neri, who also supervises Pacquiao’s diet and conditioning regimen, Manny moves very well in the ring now.

Roach, assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez and Neri have lined up 10 rounds of sparring for Pacquiao on Saturday before gradually tapering off.

Team Pacquiao leaves for Macau on Nov. 18 by private jet.
