MANNY Pacquiao remains quick on the offensive, emphasizing he hasn't made a decision yet whether or not the legendary Freddie Roach will still be on his corner for his world welterweight title fight against Lucas Matthyse. "I am a world champion and he wants my belt; He chose me and I am the one who gives the OK to make the fight", said Matthysse.
Roach says he didn't officially learn about the split until Pacquiao's announcement. "I wouldn't trade any of it", Roach said.
In what now marks the final fight of their lengthy, fruitful run, Pacquiao dropped a controversial unanimous verdict and a WBO welterweight crown to Jeff Horn in the latter's native Brisbane this past July.
"I will make a final decision within the week".
It didn't make things better when a recent press release on Pacquiao's upcoming duel with Matthyse never made mention about Roach, and instead said the Philippine senator will be joined by trainers Restituto "Buboy" Fernandez and Raides "Nonoy" Neri.
Pacquiao (59-7-2) has worked with Roach as his lead coach since 2002 after he became the IBF super bantamweight champion.

Roach met Pacquiao at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, where Pacquiao first came when he was looking for a new trainer before scoring a sixth-round technical knockout of Lehlo Ledwaba in Las Vegas. "Manny learned a lot from Freddie, but he's at the stage where he's going to be ending his career, and I truly believe this: A fighter must only have one voice in the corner and it must be a voice he can trust".
"I'm not thinking about the scorecards, I'm thinking of knocking Pacquiao out", he said.
Roach as of now keeps himself busy.
Matthysse said: "This is the fight I have always wanted".
