Freddie Roach: 'It's Over' For Pacquiao if He Gets KO'd by Rios

Jul 18 2013, 12:42am CDT | by

Trainer Freddie Roach says "it's over" for Manny Pacquiao if he loses to Brandon Rios by knockout in their November fight in Macau.

Freddie Roach prophesizes it will be all over for Manny Pacquiao if he loses to Brandon Rios.

This may come as no surprise considering the Filipino sensation is coming offconsecutive losses to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez. Bradley beat Pacquiao by split decision in June 2012 to snap his seven-year winning streak while Marquez knocked him out in the sixth round six months later.

Yahoo! Sports boxing expert Kevin Iole notes Pacquiao made a promise to Roach he would hang up his gloves when his trainer tells him to. Should up-and-coming welterweight sensation Brandon Rios knock out Pacquiao in their November 23 fight in Macau, Roach would recommend retirement

"It's over, 100 percent. We have a deal. When I tell him it's over, he'll say it's over and that's it."

Rios, who's coming off a loss to Mike Alvarado four months ago, would do everything he could to turn this into reality. He even said, "When I catch his (Pacquiao's) ass, he's going to go down."

Rob Smith of East Side Boxing argues Pacquiao, who is slated to make a killing from Chinese and U.S. pay-per-view revenue from the fight, would not likely retire if he would earn a big paycheck estimated to be in the $30 million range. 

Whichever way it goes, only Pacquiao would be able to decide whether to retire or not depending on the outcome of the Rios fight. 

Pacquiao goes into the bout with a 54-5-2 record with 38 knockouts while Rios is 31-1-1 with 23 stoppages.

Oct 28 2014 10:02am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report
