Freddie Roach warns Keith Thurman not to rush in against Manny Pacquiao when they collide each other next month in Las Vegas.
The reigning Fighter of the Decade – Pacquiao (61-7-2, 39 KOs), is back and the sports world is for the better because of it. He is preparing for his challenge of undefeated WBA welterweight super champion “One Time” Thurman.
Forty may just be a number to Manny but his trainer, World-Famous Roach, wouldn’t be surprised if Thurman became Manny’s fortieth knockout victim.

“If Thurman comes straight in and goes after Manny, which I think he will, he is going to be cooked. Chef Manny will be serving him up on a platter like Lobster Thurmandor,” said Roach.
The eight-division world champion is the Philippines’ national treasure. Amazin’ Manny is set for his third world championship fight in the past 12 months.
