Roach does not want to see a Pacquiao-Cintron

“Who would buy the Pacquiao-Cintron fight?” Roach exclaimed.

Kermit Cintron, (32-3-1, 28 KO) recently signed a contract with Top Rank Promotions, owned by Bob Arum. The 79 year old promoter who's been on the business for 45 years recently expressed his desire to put Kermit Cintron in line for a fight against Manny Pacquiao.

Roach disagrees because Cintron is not good for business at this time. Kermit’s fight against Paul Williams was a disaster. It ended after four rounds because Kermit literally fall out of the ropes and couldn’t move. So the fight was truncated and the scorecards were added. Paul Williams won the fight via split decision. After being laid in a stretcher, Cintron decided to continue the fight but it was too late and the judges already made their decision. Two of his losses were scored by Antonio Margarito, the last opponent of Manny Pacquiao which suffered an eye injury and had to be taken to the hospital after that fight. The draw was against Sergio Martinez, which kayoed Paul Williams in the 2nd round in late 2010.

No one would buy a Cintron vs Pacquiao fight after Manny wins against Shane Mosley. The best opponent for Manny Pacquiao would either be Juan Manuel Marquez, Floyd Mayweather, if he is available and no one else. If Shane Mosley wins on May 7, a rematch in November is compulsory. But at this time, no one thinks Shane will win, so Pacquiao must decide who to fight against.

If Arum thinks a Pacquiao vs Cintron fight will bring them good money, then let it be.But I personally don't think so.

Puerto Rican junior middleweight Kermit Cintron has an up-and-down career. It has included some nights where he surprised folks and nights where he was overwhelmed by better fighters, as stated by Scott Christ in

The Pacquiao vs Mosley fight will be at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Pacquiao will defend his WBO Welterweight Belt against Sugar Shane Mosley.
