He’s a former fighter, and he’s long ago hung up the gloves, but the fighter still remains.
Freddie Roach noted that he got feisty on the night of May 2, when he gave it to Al Haymon, the reclusive disruptor who was on site at MGM and in the locker room when his guy Floyd Mayweather was getting his hands wrapped.
Freddie piped up when he saw Floyd’s getting his paw wrapped with a size of tape he didn’t think was allowed. He spoke up, he told me.
Haymon, he said, told him to simmer, down, not address his fighter. The Mass-hole in Freddie gurgled up, and he told Al to stick a sock in it, that he was talking to the inspector. And what did Al say in response? Al didn’t counter, the trainer stated.
“I’m not scared of him,” Roach said.
Wait, is he sure it was Al? I’ve had meetings with Al, I know what Al looks like. It was Al, y’all, the trainer said.
Oh, I’d have liked to be a fly hanging on a wall in that room…
