Freddie Roach no longer Pacquiao's trainer

It was under Roach's guidance that Pacquiao won seven of his eight world titles in eight world divisions and was named as fighter of the decade.

After a 15-year partnership, Senator Manny Pacquiao has chose to fire Freddie Roach- but didn't even bother to reach out to him for one final talk.

The two boxers are scheduled to fight on July 14 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in a bout set to be carried by ESPN as a pay-per-view bout. Roach had been in Pacquiao's corner for 34 consecutive fights since his US debut in 2001.

Roach told Yahoo Sports that Pacquiao did not notify him of the move. The duo each released a statement on Friday night announcing they won't be working together for Pacquiao's upcoming fight against Lucas Matthysse. Roach said on Friday that he hasn't been officially informed he's out as his lead trainer, according to the L.A. Times. Pacquiao frequently credited Roach for his evolution from a raw Filipino puncher into an eight-division world champion during countless hours of work in Roach's Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.

One of boxing's most successful partnerships is no more.

"Hopefully I can retire Manny Pacquiao, we are prepared for that, prepared to win", said Matthtsse to Boxing Scene. I wouldn't trade any of it. "Inside the boxing ring and the political ring, I wish Manny nothing but the best", Roach said.

Pacquiao will enter the ring on the back of a loss, and a one-year layoff, after dropping a twelve round decision and the WBO title to Jeff Horn last July in Brisbane, Australia.

But Pacquiao, who is also a senator in the Philippines, is determined to extend his career.

However, he would have wanted to hear the news from Pacquiao himself.

Roach is widely considered one of the greatest trainers in recent boxing history. Top Rank, Pacquiao's longtime promoter, will handle certain aspects of the promotion.
