When speaking to The U.S. Sun the veteran coach made it clear that Pacquiao is looking at bigger and better opportunities than the former UFC champ.
“Manny does not have any interest in fighting an MMA fighter,” said Roach. “He wants to fight the best fighters out there.”
“If he [Pacquiao] can’t be at that level at boxing, then he doesn’t want to be boxing,” he continued. “He will retire and hopefully become president of his country.
“If there is another fight after this it’s not going to be McGregor, it’s going to be one of the best guys out there.
“It’s not going to be a guy from another sport. Manny and Georges St-Pierre are friends and so forth but the sports just do not match up well together.
