All Bruce Lee’s movies I watched it. You know the quickness, hands speed, foot work. That’s speed,” Teri shared “There’s a lot going on, it appears. There are people who studied Bruce Lee.., many, many decades and they can’t break it down, figure it out and Manny, he’s done it… I would assume without an instructor.

But Freddie Roach was more direct, saying he want Pacquiao to do what May Weather did not. “Shane’s a tough guy, and very durable guy, and it would be a great feather in Manny’s cap to be able to stop him and to just prove to the world how much better he is than that other guy (May Weather) that couldn’t stop him,” he added “So I think that with Manny, we’re going to fight at a fast pace, and I don’t know if he will be prepared to fight at at that pace. But we’re going to forced the action and we’re going to go for this time. If it comes, then it comes, but I think that Manny is definitely the guy to do it.” I think Shane Mosley is a very good fighter. He didn’t look that great on his last two fights because of the styles he fought,” Roach added, “You look at his last good fight, when he fought Margarito, he looked great in that fight.
