$1,000 for anyone to knock Pacquiao down

By Eddie Alinea

09 Oct 2010



Manny Pacquiao’s chief trainer Freddie Roach has again put up a prize of $1,000 for any one of his sparring partner who will succeed in sending him to the canvas whether it be in Baguio City where the Filipino icon is currently training or in Los Angeles where he will resume preparations next week.

Roach, in a long distance telephone interview with this writer from the Pines City, said he is, once again, putting up the prize to be sure that Pacquiao’s spar mates will work their best in preparing the reigning World Boxing Organization welterweight champ for his coming fight with Mexican Antonio Margarito on November 13 (November 14 in Manila) in Texas.

“Yes, I am renewing my challenge to Manny’s sparring partners to make sure they will put up their best in their job to put him in top shape when the fight comes,” the celebrated training legend added.

This is not the first time that Roach has put up the prize. If memory serves, he started putting up the bounty three years ago when Pacquiao fought legendary Oscar Dela Hoya. No one had succeeded thus far.

Hours after Roach made the announcement, undefeated junior-middleweight contender Vanes Martirosyan, who has yet to arrive in the country, has accepted the challenge ahead of everybody.
Boxing Scene website reported that Martirosyan (28-0, 17KO), who will be flying in next week to prepare himself for his own fight with Pawel Wolak on Dec. 4. has announced he has what it takes to succeed where other else failed.
"I am up for Freddie's challenge. I will be the first to drop Manny," said the Glendale, California based Armenian, who is a member of Roach's boxing stable in his Los Angeles Wild Card Gym that includes Pacquiao, Amir Khan and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Martirosyan clarified though that he doesn't want his comments to be misconstrued.

Khan, the World Boxing Association junior-welter champ who flew in last Thursday, meanwhile, expressed his willingness to spar with spar with Pacquiao, contrary to earlier announcement.
Roach and conditioning coach Alex Ariza had said that Khan is in the country only to prepare himself for his mandatory defense of his title against Marcos Maidana on Dec. 11.

Khan did not say though whether the change in plans was for him to try to for the $1,000 prize Roach is dangling over the head of Pacquiao’s spar mates.

Pacquiao has currently been working with unbeaten junior-welterweight Glen Tapia and junior-middleweight Michael Medina since last week.
