For Freddie Roach, coach of Pac Man, the match this weekend is huge and a must win for their camp.

"So this is a big, big fight for him. We are in a 'must-win' situation, it's as simple as that. Some people think we are all done and we have to prove that we are not."

The boxer-turned-governor's camp said that losing is not an option or it may be the last match that people may see Pacquiao in the ring if he loses.

"This is a 'must-win' situation on Saturday night, and if we don't win this fight we have to consider maybe retirement," Hall of Famer coach Roach said in an exclusive interview with Telegraph Sport.

Roach told that he owes the Filipino boxer his career and that he was the best thing that came to his life. He believes that this will not be the last time fans will be seeing the fighting pride of the Philippines fight in the ring as he is confident that they will stay on top when the boxing match ends on Sunday.

"Manny's been the greatest guy in the world to me. It's the best thing that ever happened when he walked through my (Wild Card Gym) doors. That's why I built the gym, in case a Manny Pacquiao ever walked through the doors. . . . We've had a great run. I don't think it's close to being over. His work ethic is so great, he's training really hard, he's not missing a step anywhere."

During the first bout between the two boxers, Roach believed that the match should've went to Pacquiao's favor as he was winning the bout in almost every round. This will be the fuel, the combo of Roach and Manny that would drive them to beat Bradley this time and prove that the first match was theirs.

 "If you think about it, you're going to feel sad because you're winning and then you lose the fight. But that's part of boxing and you have to accept that not all the time you're on the winning side. Sometimes you go to the loser's side. You have to offset that."
