“We have a deal. When I tell him it’s over, he’ll say it’s over, and that’s it. He’s pretty loyal with his words and if that happens, it will be the end,” Roach explained. Roach has a very high expectation regarding Pacquiao’s words. He is said to never take back on his own words.
After being knock down during his last fight, which was against Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao had lost points to the unbeaten American Timothy Bradley in June 2012.
