Roach: Danny Garcia is my No.1 choice to face Pacquiao

Danny Garcia, Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao - If trainer Freddie Roach gets his way, Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) will be fighting WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) in the near future. Roach says Garcia is someone that he really would like to see fighting Pacquiao, because he thinks his fighting style would be perfect for him. Lately, Roach has been talking more about other fighters facing Pacquiao than the guy he's facing next in Chris Algieri on 11/22 and that has me wondering what his game is.

Ashley Theophane talks 36th victory and Mayweather Promotions

Ashley Theophane - I turned professional back in the autumn of 2002, but I didn't make my professional debut until the following summer of 2003. I had to wait 8 long months for the opportunity. The four big promoters in the UK at the time were not interested in taking a chance on me; Mick Hennessey, Frank Warren, Frank Maloney and Barry Hearn all passed on me.
