Floyd Mayweather may be one of the most respected boxers for the amazing record he possesses in his professional career with 47 wins and 0 losses. But, off the field, he has had some problems in the past, which does not put him in good light.
The American has been sentenced for his involvement in some physical assault, not once but seven times so far. This surely must be a huge problem for the undefeated champ.
"Manny is really against domestic violence," Freddie Roach told USA Today. Both the boxers may be very different from one another outside the ring, as the American love flaunting his money and cars, but the Filipino is into charity.
The Filipino, a devout Christian, is expected to give some of his earnings to charity from the 2 May bout against Mayweather at MGM Grand In Las Vegas.
It was three years ago that the American had to spend two months in a detention facility for a domestic attack on Josie Harris, mother to three of his four children.
"It is a big issue maybe in the Philippines for him and being a congressman he can control some of that stuff. That is a big plus for me that Manny does not like the guy, I think the killer instinct is going to come back a lot faster."
Roach considers the bout between the two as a fight between the evil (Mayweather) and good (Pacquiao).
"(I see the fight as) good against evil, yes. I have even thought about bringing a couple of the metro cops from Vegas in to tell Manny how many times (Mayweather) has been arrested and how bad of a guy he is, but I decided I can't go that far. He already doesn't like him; I think we are OK."
There are not many boxers, who "Pac-Man" does not like, but the American is definitely not liked by the Filipino, according to Raoach.
If this is the case, then the fight may well turn out to be personal and one could see an aggressive fight between the two.
"For the first time in my life with Manny Pacquiao, this is the first fighter he hasn't liked. I can tell."
Both the boxers have been undergoing some serious training with their respective trainers to get into perfect shape for the fight of the century.
The mega fight is expected to break all box office records in boxing history. Irrespective of the winner, the revenue generated is going to be split between "Money" and "Pac-Man" with the American receiving 60% share and the Filipino 40%.
