LOS ANGELES---Manny Pacquiao and trainer Freddie
Roach have spent the past two months trying to
solve the biggest puzzle in modern boxing.
How does anybody hit Floyd Mayweather Jr, a
fighter whose perfect career is built on being nearly
impossible to touch? Pacquiao and Roach will reveal
their answer in detail Saturday night in Las Vegas,
when the fighters meet in the richest bout in boxing
history. But clues to a strategy for breaking May-
weather s impenetrable defense were evident in Pac-
quiao s final workout at Roach s Wild Card gym in
Hollywood on Monday. Pacquiao was a whirlwind of
motion from the moment he stepped in the ring,
throwing dozens of punches in combinations against
Roach s mitts and chest protector.
While Roach took a much-deserved break, Pacquiao
shadowboxed across the canvas, peppering the air
with hundreds of rapid-fire punches long after his
workout could have been over. "You can beat Floyd
Mayweather if you outwork him and never give him
a chance to do the things he does best," Roach said.
"Manny is punching real hard, but I want him to
outscore (Mayweather) in every round. I think we can
win a 12-round decision. We want to throw a ton of
Pacquiao is betting on aggression, activity and
punch volume to defeat Mayweather, according to the
fighter and his longtime trainer. The eight-division
world champion has trained fiercely to fight 12 rounds
of nonstop offense against the pre-eminent defensive
fighter of his generation. "I m not really looking for
a knockout," Pacquiao said. "We re not looking only
for a knockout, but for throwing a lot of punches,
and also making sure that every round, we re ahead
on points." Pacquiao has built his remarkable career
on otherworldly quickness and old-fashioned volume
punching, both outmaneuvering and outworking nearly
all of his opponents over the past 10 years. He has
never faced a fighter with Mayweather s skills in
defense and counterpunching, but Roach believes
Mayweather has never dealt with an opponent as
relentless as the southpaw Filipino congressman.
"Our volume of combinations is much higher than
Mayweather s," Roach said. "Mayweather waits for
you to finish your combination and throws back with
the big right hand or the check hook, and we re not
going to be there for that. We re going to be in and
out, and I plan on Manny outscoring him that way."
Roach also seems confident Pacquiao can move better
than Mayweather in a 12-round fight, a remarkable
prediction based on observation. The trainer believes
Mayweather s legs will fade in the second half of the
fight, particularly if Pacquiao chases him around the
ring for the first half.
Evidence of the decline in the 38-year-old May-
weather s legs is debatable, but Roach insists he saw
it in Mayweather s two most recent fights against
Marcos Maidana. The hard-hitting Argentine seemed
to land more clean shots on Mayweather than anybody
in recent history through persistence and volume,
although Mayweather has scoffed at the notion. "May-
weather s legs are shot, and you saw it twice last year,"
Roach said. "He s not becoming more crowd-pleasing.
He just can t move like he used to, so he has to exchange
more. As long as we can hit him and then move, May-
weather can t touch us." Roach has closed Pacquiao s
sparring sessions to the media, an unusual tactic for
the duo. Roach said it s because they re working on
a detailed game plan that includes "a little bit more
of a surprise. Stuff he hasn t seen before."
But Roach has echoed Pacquiao s decision to down-
play the possibility of a knockout. Mayweather has
rarely even been in trouble in his career, much less
stopped, while Pacquiao hasn t stopped anyone in his
last nine fights since 2009. "I can t count on him
knocking this guy out, because he really has never
been a big puncher at 147 (pounds)," Roach said.
"That s because by fight time, most of the guys he s
fighting have been 160, and they re just bigger guys."
But Roach wants Pacquiao to be ready to fight from
Pacquiao, Roach scheme on
plan for Mayweather's defense
the opening bell, something that shouldn t be hard
with the likely frenzy in the MGM Grand Garden.
"For some reason, I have an idea that (Mayweather)
is going to come out really quick on us and try to
knock Manny out in the first round," Roach said.
"I think he s been watching the tape of Manny get-
ting knocked out (by Juan Manuel Marquez). May-
weather does have that big overhand right, or that
long right hand. I think he s going to use that against
us. We re prepared for that one also.
"I think Mayweather will come right after us. I
hope he does. We re ready." (AP)
