MACAU—Robert Garcia, the trainer of fighter Brandon Rios, says opponent Manny Pacquiao is showing signs of coming to the end of his career and is vulnerable in this weekend’s WBO welterweight title decider.

Pacquiao is coming off two losses and has not fought since his devastating knockout defeat at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez almost a year ago.


Garcia said Friday that “everybody’s end comes someday and it could be this fight. He does have a lot to lose in this fight, and that’s pressure.”


Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, responded by saying, “I hope they are overconfident because Manny is going to destroy this guy.”

The undercard for the fight at The Venetian casino in Macau begins at 8 a.m. Sunday local time (0000 GMT).
