The possibility of Manny Pacquiao fighting April 14 in Las Vegas is looking increasingly doubtful and is expected to be officially clarified this week.

In addition to the matter of when he'll fight again, there's also some question about who'll be in his corner.

Freddie Roach, Pacquiao's longtime trainer who's been alongside the seven-division world champion since 2001, was sitting ringside at Saturday night's "SuperFly 2" card at the Forum and said he's uncertain when the 39-year-old Pacquiao will fight next.

A voice for calm during Baltimore riots has died

  A voice for calm during Baltimore riots has died The stepfather of a black man whose death in police custody sparked riots in Baltimore has died. Richard "Rick" Shipley spoke for the family of Freddie Gray, calling for calm in the city after his stepson suffered a fatal spinal cord injury in April 2015."Whoever comes to our city -- a city that we love, a city that we live in -- come in peace. If you are not coming in peace, please don't come at all," Shipley said as sections of the inner city burned. "Because this city needs to get back to work.

With Manny Pacquiao set to fight Adrien Broner Saturday night in Las Vegas, the curious case of Freddie Roach lingers. In short, how is it that And without Roach in his corner , Pacquiao delivered his first knockout in nine years with a TKO victory in July over Argentine brawler Lucas Matthysse.

"Nothing you'll hear some good stories, that's all I don't really believe that shit like that helps the fighter it has nothing to do with the fight ," stated Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach , who ripped the corner advice of Teddy Atlas and says Timothy Bradley will be no different in a 3rd fight with Manny

"I usually leave him alone until I hear from him, but I've called him five times and haven't heard back," Roach told The Times. "Maybe he changed his number. ... "

The top two officials at Pacquiao's promotional company, Top Rank, told The Times two weeks ago the plan was to move Pacquiao's tentatively scheduled return bout from Madison Square Garden to Mandalay Bay on April 14.

But amid a serious backlash about the quality of Pacquiao's opponent, former 140-pound champion Mike Alvarado, Top Rank President Todd duBoef told The Times on Monday that "we're working through a bunch of stuff now, putting stuff together," and declined to comment beyond that.

Top Rank Chairman Bob Arum clarified that unbeaten Terence Crawford, the former junior-welterweight champion, will "absolutely" be fighting World Boxing Organization champion Jeff Horn of Australia on April 14 at Mandalay Bay in a fight to be broadcast on ESPN.

Trainer Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao during the official Pacquiao vs. Horn press conference for WBO World Welterweight Championship at Suncorp Stadium on June 28, 2017 in Brisbane Roach had been in Pacquiao ’s corner for 34 consecutive fights since his U.S. debut in 2001.

His Manny Pacquiao Promotions will package the fight , and place it in an indoor arena, said Michael Koncz, Manny ’s right-hand man, on Monday night. It’s also looking like Coach Roach , “Dedham” Freddie , will not be getting Pacman ready and cornering him versus Matthysse. No bad blood or

Asked about Pacquiao, Arum said, "We're going to have an announcement in the next couple days. I can't talk about it."

Pacquiao's loyalty to Roach has been unquestioned for years - and could very well remain strong - but Arum and Pacquiao manager Michael Koncz criticized the veteran cornerman for not being more assertive with referee Mark Nelson in July when Horn roughed up Pacquiao en route to a controversial unanimous-decision victory over Pacquiao in Australia.

And there have been rumors in the Philippines that Pacquiao would consider promoting Buboy Fernandez, his best friend and assistant cornerman.

The main conundrum is who to put in the ring against Pacquiao, who is seeking his 60th career victory.

Arum is friendly with the World Boxing Organization, which has a vacant belt at 140 pounds, so something could get arranged there to give Pacquiao (59-7-2) a chance to earn a major title in a record eighth weight class after knocking out Ricky Hatton in 2009 for the International Boxing Organization's 140-pound belt.

Freddie Roach brought back a secret weapon as he trains Manny Pacquiao for his showdown with Freddie Roach has been thinking about what he can do to add a little spark to Manny Pacquiao ’s training “Thurman is definitely a good fighter , but you look at his last three fights ,” Roach said.

There's also the possibility of fighting two-division champion Vasyl Lomachenko or waiting for the Crawford-Horn winner. A Lomachenko matchup, though, is reminiscent of Pacquiao's 2008 domination of Oscar De La Hoya in the Golden Boy's farewell fight, and Roach frowns on fighting the gifted Crawford, The Times' No. 1 pound-for-pound boxer.

Arum said he's still hopeful of pitting Lomachenko against World Boxing Assn. lightweight champion Jorge Linares on May 12 at Madison Square Garden.

"Where there's a will, there's a way. When sensible people try to find a solution, they'll find a solution," Arum said. "We're on our way to finding a solution. People are working behind the scenes to make it happen, and it's a win-win for everybody."

New World Boxing Organization lightweight champion Ray Beltran could fight Lomachenko if the Linares matchup does not happen.
