According to Roach, the day that Mayweather and Pacquiao spoke (via phone) about the fight...he stated that Mayweather told him, "Manny, after boxing, I have nothing and you have everything".

Interesting...

Thoughts?

either way you see it he has a point, yes he is talking some bullshit, but I wonder how it Mayweather will take retirement, it was obvious he couldn't stay away from boxing and craved the attention, will he ever truly retire? I mean his skills will allow him to fight into his later years I think since he doesn't really get into wars, while MP has the whole being a congress blah blah blah after boxing. But it also would seem like bullshit cause that almost sounds like sincerity and when the hells Mayweather ever been sincere, seems like a plea.

W.r.t. Mayweather going into that "retirement," I honestly didn't think he was actually retiring. In my view, he was already aware of the need to self-preserve and allow his body to re-build, which was smart. Secondly, he was just being a student of the game by learning to do even better what some of those greats before him had done, including more recently SRL.

Mayweather is too egoistic to blab out such weakness (as insinuated by Roach) to anyone at this stage of his career. Besides, with the happenings in the last couple of years, he is genuinely on top of his game, especially when it comes to his timing as to when to do what in his boxing career.

As for Roach, I think such trash talking behavior could result from a combination of his incoherency and the need for damage control during these trying times.
