MANILA, Philippines—Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach has been with Manny Pacquiao’s most important fights.

And it’s no surprise that Roach is on Pacquiao’s corner too in the biggest fight of his life outside the ring.


Pacquiao on Sunday declared he is running for the Philippine presidency in the 2022 elections and Roach is all for it.

“Very proud and excited to hear of Manny’s run for President in the Philippines for 2022. All the best to you, Manny-truly the Fighting Pride of the Philippines AND The People’s Champ @MannyPacquiao,” Roach posted on social media.

The 42-year-old Pacquiao has been under Roach’s tutelage since 2001 with the two forming one of the best partnerships the sport has ever seen.
