Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Zab Judah trashes Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach
There’s never a dull moment leading up to a massive prizefight like Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on May 2.
A few weeks ago, it was rumored Floyd Jr. stopped two-division world champion Zab Judah during a sparring session and was looking relatively sharp in the gym.
When asked to share his thoughts on the matter, Hall of Fame fight trainer Freddie Roach didn’t seem overly impressed with the feat.
“Who cares,” stated Manny Pacquiao’s head boxing coach. “Who cares if Floyd knocks out an old man like Zab Judah.”
When the candid quotes of the seven-time trainer of the year got back to the proud Brooklyn native, “Super” Judah had several choice words for the world renowned fight trainer.
“Man, he’s gone on record saying Zab’s old, Zab’s a bum, but I’m not the one fighting Manny Pacquiao,” states the five-time world champion. “I’m not even in this fight. The guy he should be worried about is Mayweather.”
“I feel for you and everything you have to go through, but that’s no excuse for you to have Tourette Syndrome of the mouth. It’s not right. Let’s look at what he did as a fighter.”
“He did nothing. You want to talk about bums? You could have put Freddie on a chain in the boxing ring, because he was nothing but a heavy bag. You didn’t beat anybody and you didn’t do anything as a prizefighter. I’m a five time champion of the world.”
“I never in my life ever said anything negative towards you, so I really don’t know why he’s opening up his mouth talking about me.”
Since the always candid Freddie Roach recently decided to break the proverbial ice with his seemingly offensive comments about the 18 year professional, Judah decided to partake in a little trash talk of his own.
“You’re known as a Hall of Fame trainer, but I beg to differ,” stated the 37 year old fighter. “A Hall of Fame trainer should be able to take someone from scratch and turn him into a world champion. You’ve never done that. You got guys already made…Cotto, Pacquiao, Khan…everybody.”
“So if you really want to get technical about this, I don’t see you as a Hall of Fame trainer. How? Roger Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather Sr., my father, Angel Garcia…those guys deserve more recognition, because they’ve all taken fighters from scratch and turned them into world champions.”
“Show me one guy Freddie has done that with? Who?”
In a little less than five weeks, Freddie Roach will get the opportunity to prove his worth as a Hall of Fame trainer when he gets the opportunity to solve the “May-vinci” code. If his superstar fighter becomes the first man to successfully execute a strategy that defeats Floyd Jr., it will be difficult to refute all of Freddie’s accomplishments as a renowned boxing coach.
