FREDDIE ROACH, coach of Manny Pacquiao who meets Timothy Bradley on April 9, spoke exclusively to George Gigney for this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and in stores on Thursday (January 21). Here is an excerpt.

What do you make of the teaming of Timothy Bradley and Teddy Atlas?
I didn’t see much improvement in the last fight [Bradley’s stoppage win over Brandon Rios]. He had a fat, overweight guy in front of him. I don’t think we can give him [Atlas] credit yet. If Bradley does better against Manny, we can give him credit but I don’t think that’ll happen. I don’t think being a cheerleader is the best way to train a fighter.
