I wonder if he's still going to have Freddie Roach as his trainer? I'd imagine there'd be some feuding in Golden Boy Productions if that were the case.

He does realize they punch back doesn't he? And these guy still hit hard and he will be hit a lot. Plus he is still going to have a glass chin I wish him the best of luck.

Boxing anymore is all about speed. I dont think he'll face anyone that hits like Fedor, and if the could hit like Fedor they couldnt set it up or sneak it in, since the only thing to worry about in boxing is your opponents left and right hands. You cant fake/throw a kick, or trip, or knee, or takedown, or elbow, or clinch... etc.

Yes Freddie is going to train him.

Why would that cause issues?

Golden Boy Productions is run by (shockingly) "The Golden Boy" Oscar de la Hoya. Freddie coached Oscar for the Mayweather fight. After he lost, Oscar threw Freddie under the bus, claiming that the loss was all his fault. Freddie then went public & said he knew why Oscar had lost. Then the Manny/Oscar fight rolls around, Manny hires Freddie & Freddie trains Manny to run rings around Oscar.

So, Oscar & Freddie aren't exactly best of buddies.

Yeah. I mean, I think that Oscar's enough of a business man to not forbid Freddie from training, but it's not like they'll be skipping down the hallways & having picnics together.
