Manny’s speed will count – Roach

Pacquiao’s trainer claims he has detected signs of wear and tear in the unbeaten Mayweather ahead of boxing’s biggest occasion in years.

And Roach is confident his man can expose the 38-year-old’s emerging flaws come fight night on May 2.

“I don’t think he moves like he used to,” Roach told Sky Sports News HQ at a media open day at his Wild Card Gym. “His legs aren’t what they were – that’s the first thing to go with a fighter.

“He has a good right hand but i don’t think he’ll knock Manny out with that right hand.??There’s nothing I’m really concerned about so much.

“I know he’s a good fighter, but I just think I have the better fighter. The hand speed’s going to be the big, big difference. Manny’s much quicker than he is.”
