“Yes, they want me to go to Montreal and they want me to work the corner in some fights and so forth,” Freddie Roach told FightHubTV.com. “I respect all sports. If I can make someone a better fighter, I don’t care if it’s MMA, UFC, Manny Pacquiao, it doesn’t matter to me.

“That’s what I live for.”

The famed boxing coach would love nothing more than to whisper sweet nothings in St-Pierre’s ear in between rounds this Saturday, but Roach’s dance card was filled up a long time ago.

“He wants me to go to his fight and work his corner over in Montreal,” Roach stated. “Unfortunately, I have Amir Khan and those guys fighting on the same day [in Las Vegas], so I can’t make it. I wish him the best. He’s a great student.”

Yeah, Roach is training a world champion boxer. That would be like a wrestling coach missing GSP's fight if a UFC took place during the olympics.

I saw the actual interview with Roach posted in a thread here about a week or so ago. It was a great interview where he discussed George coming in to meet Manny, and how respectful George was was by sitting back and not wanting to distract Manny at all from his workout. Freddie also said Manny was well aware of Georges presence and may have been putting a little extra pop into the pads during his workout that day. He said the two hit it off well, and Georges respect and professional courtesy while in Manny's space was a rare and admirable trait.

Something like that anyways. Wish i could remember the thread to link you guys to. It was a good video. It's in here somewhere.

Holy misleading title! Geez, Roach has prior commitments. Not like he had nothing going on and just said no like the thread title has one believe.
