The House That Jerry Built will host the match on Nov. 13. Although the boxing world would have rather seen Pacquiao take on Floyd Mayweather Jr., this fight is expected to be boxing’s most thrilling match of the year in the most thrilling sports venue on the planet.
While this bout has Pacquiao’s full attention, Pac Man’s corner is still disgruntled about Mayweather dodging what would be the most-anticipated fight in years.
“I think he just wants that zero on his record,” trainer Freddie Roach said on Into the Night With Tony Bruno, according to SportsRadioInterviews.com. “As long as he’s undefeated he can argue and say he’s the best fighter ever, he’s as good as Sugar Ray Robinson and so forth, and he can make that argument as long as he doesn’t have that loss on his record. I think it’s more important for him to stay undefeated than fight the best guy out there.”
