Ex Mayweather Gym Boxer Might Be Roach’s Secret Weapon

Freddie Roach has an ace up his sleeve and try as I might to get him to spill his guts, I can’t get the Massachusetts native, even when I try to soften him up by dropping my Rs, to show his card.

Can’t get him to show his “cahd,” lol…..

I can’t get the Manny Pacquiao trainer to tell me who the heck his mystery sparring partner is, who is this guy he has snagged out from under Team Mayweather, and who will be able to give Manny some Floyd-like looks, and, just maybe, some intel to help inform the game-plan to try and hand “Money” some change, in the form of his first loss as a pro.

“He’s staying at my house,” Roach told me on Tuesday night, of “Mr. X,” the man who trained at Mayweathers’ gym, according to “Dedham” Freddie, and is a bit hesitant to go public with his new sparring gig, because of the blowback he might experience.

“He used to work with Mayweather. He says they are a bunch of (jerks).”

For real, Freddie? You pullin’ my chain, man?

“He’s in my spare bedroom,” Coach Roach said. “He’s in my effin house! I like the guy. But I won’t use him until the last two weeks (of sparring).”

Sorry, I tried crew. I will continue to pester, don’t you worry.

I know the fight is still weeks away and we need to talk about something....but again with the sparring partners? First Haymon is paying off people not to spar with Pac. Then Floyd is KO'ing them.. which is doubtful at best. Then I'm reading that Guillermo Rigondeaux "might" be working with Pacquiao-as though that matters. Now we have a "secret" ex-TMT member staying with Roach and will spar with Manny. Roberto Duran had Simon Smith and Teddy White as sparring partner for the first Leonard fight. Simon Smith from Panama, never won a professional fight according to boxrec and Teddy White had a 6-7 record. Yet, Duran was better prepared for that fight than any fighter these eyes have ever seen. I hope more interesting story lines develop as the fight nears.

C'mon, Brad! Don't you like intriguing mysteries of "the theatre of the unexpected." Boksing can develop some strange bedfellows. There is a Pinoy right out of Da Manny's hometown working with Money May. One of Money May's close biological relatives has been making threats to the May Fam and The Money Team to travel to the WildCard Gym in KoreaTown and give up the Mayvinci Code. You never know what is going to happen in "The Twilight Zone" -- I mean the "theatre of the unexpected." Hehehe! Holla!

Always ready Freddie "Grandmaster Coach no joke" Roach got Da Manny's victory on lockdown. Lil Floyd is going to look like a clown. He is bragging how he got a chef who is making him food at a thousand dollars a plate. OMFG! Ain't nobodee and dey nephew are going to hate. To Money May, more power! He stands as as a tower. And he is going crumble like one from Da Manny's buzz saw attack. money May won't be able to handle the Pac. The best things in life are free. I'm in KoreaTown, USA, picking the best food off a tree. What these arrogrant Lil Floydites don't know, in KISS -- keeping it short and simple -- lies the victory. For pretending to be sophisticated and superior, so many people cannot see. Money May will be eating ______ ____ after he is revived come the fright night for him on May 2. "Black and blue, babeee! "BLACK and BLUE.
