"Baketball has always been an issue.He's always played basketball until four weeks before a figth,He's only a second week of a boxing and his great where we are.He's doing fine," said Roach.
"This is all part of the game.This is training camp." added Roach,who did not mind as well as that Pacquiao left for Manila yesterday afternoon for his daugther's birthday which actually came yesterday.
Pacquiao, a Congressman,also had to deliver some speech somewhere.He just couldnt say no when those who invited him should know better that's he in the middle of the training
" I was told he is coming back Sunday."said Roach
