Pacquiao ended the 16-year relationship with Roach ahead of his title fight against Lucas Matthysse.

The boxing trainer said he is hurt the 39-year-old did not deem it fit to inform him directly.

“Manny and I had a great run for 15 years – longer than most marriages and certainly a rarity for boxing,” said Roach.

 

 

“I wouldn’t trade any of it. Inside the boxing ring and the political ring, I wish Manny nothing but the best.

 

“I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t hurt that he didn’t contact me personally about his decision, but the great times we enjoyed together far outweigh that.”
