Manny Pacquiao will definitely fight Terence Crawford, but not in November says coach Freddie Coach during an interview with George Gigney on his comeback.
HALL OF FAME trainer Freddie Roach has revealed Manny Pacquiao will "definitely" fight Terence Crawford, though does not want it to happen in November. The Filipino icon will end his short-lived retirement on November 5 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, but an opponent has not yet been finalised. Crawford made himself the frontrunner by dominating Viktor Postol – who Roach also trains – to unify the WBO and WBC super-lightweight titles. "I always said he would fight again. Right after his last fight we spoke about it and he said he would most likely fight again. He still has a lot left," Roach told Boxing News. "At the moment everyone is mentioning Terence Crawford but I don't like that fight for November. Almost the entire training camp would be in the Philippines, we wouldn't be able to fly back to the States until 12 days before the fight.
