Late KO by Pacquiao says Freddie Roach

Freddie Roach has plenty of respect for Joshua Clottey, specifically his rock-solid chin.

But his admiration stops there since he’s confident that Manny Pacquiao is going to beat him on March 13 at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

“He’s got a good chin but we’ll make him quit sometime late in the fight,” Roach told the Bulletin last Friday in a long-distance call from Los Angeles where he and Pacquiao have been holed up since the third week of January.
