Even Freddie Roach thinks that Pacman’s change of religion was the reason he lost that Killer Instinct
LAS VEGAS — Theories abound as to why Manny Pacquiao has gone seven fights since 2009 without knocking out an opponent.
The effects of age on the 35-year-old, the talent and size of the opponents, conditioning flaws and distractions in his personal life and in his public life as a congressman in the Philippines are among the most cited reasons.
Pacquiao’s opponent Saturday at the MGM Grand, World Boxing Organization welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, has called out Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 knockouts) for losing his “killer instinct.”
“It’s reality,” Bradley (31-0) said Thursday. “His fans are saying the same thing: ‘He doesn’t have the fire,’ ‘He’s had guys pinned in the corner and lets them get away.’ That never happened before. He’s not finishing guys. Something’s changed.”
Though the tangible effects of age cannot be discounted, Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach points to a mental shift as the reason. Roach surprised some this week when he publicly floated the theory that the Bible was “getting in the way” of how Pacquiao was approaching his fights.
“He has lost the killer instinct,” Roach said. “His religious outlook on life … is the major reason why he hasn’t knocked people out. I’m sure of it.”
