Reigning pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao's trainer has began to study his fighters next opponent, during a telephone interview with theboxinghistorian's Stacey Taylor, Roach said with only weeks remaining before the fight at the $1.2 billion Cowboy’s stadium, Arlington, Texas, he has dusted of the tapes and begun to dissect Clottey.

The legendary trainer did not divulge how much time Manny Pacquiao has spent watching Clottey’s fights because the 31-year-old WBO welterweight champion usually gets bored watching tapes of his opponents.

It’s Roach who spends many hours on the sofa of his new Los Angeles home studying the tapes.

“I have been studying him quite a bit now. He is very strong and has a good chin but he makes too many fundamental mistakes and I think Manny will be the first person to knock him out,” he said during an interview with “on the ropes radio”.

Clottey has never been knocked out in his life, winning 35 matches and losing only three, each one of them debatable. The Grand Master first defeat was a disqualification in 1999 at the Wembley Arena, London, England. He was ahead on the cards but was warned repeatedly for leading with his head cutting his opponent Carlos Baldomir. His second loss came to Antonio Margarito in 2006, in round four of their bout Clottey seemed to hurt his hand while landing with an uppercut, he immediately went into retreat indicating a problem. Clottey lost a unanimous decision. In his last fight he lost a close competitive split decision loss to Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.

However Roach; referred to as “My Master” by Pacquiao, said the more he watches “The Grand Master”, the more he becomes convinced Pacquiao will stop him in the later rounds.
