In fact, it was the last question we ever asked the esteemed boxing journalist [see here]. Bert, we hope they have pay per view up in heaven. On May 2nd 2015, the fight people have been waiting years for is finally going to happen, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Floyd Mayweather Jr. will finally get into the squared circle with Manny Pacquiao. For an early assessment of the matchup, who better to give us insight than our friend and master of the sweet science, Bobby Rooney. A retired professional boxer, Mr. Rooney continues today as a trainer in the sport. In fact, he is a legacy figure in boxing. His father, Bob Rooney Sr. was also a boxing trainer, as well as Chuck Wepner’s main sparring partner for the Bayonne Bleeder’s fistic endeavor against Muhammad Ali.
