LOS ANGELES – Up-and-coming Filipino fighter Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo is not included in the fight card for Pinoy Pride 37, but he is not about to pass up a chance to work with one of the greatest trainers of all time.
Over the years, 27 world champions – including eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao – have worked with Hall-of-Famer Freddie Roach, and Magsayo can now count himself in the long line of fighters who can say they’ve hit the mitts with the celebrated trainer.
Fellow ALA fighters Jason and Albert Pagara are at the Wild Card gym, where they are preparing for their matches at Pinoy Pride 37. Magsayo won’t fight at that card but nevertheless found himself inside the ring with Roach.
