I am studying tape on Mayweather right now," Roach said on thaboxingvoice.com.
"A lot has changed since 2009-2010 when this fight should have happened. It was probably a better fight then, but it's still a good fight now."
As far back as 2009 negotiations have been on and off for the fight between the two to happen, but now it is believed that an announcement confirming that the fight is on the cards will be made soon.
Roach feels that the fight could be confirmed soon.
"I feel that the fight is close to being complete," Roach said.
"Everything I hear from people involved in the negotiations is positive. From promoters, managers, network guys, it’s all positive," he added.
