Freddie talks about the possible superfight…

- Boxing guru Freddie Roach recently spoke about the possible superfight between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (21-2 MMA, 15-2 UFC) and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (27-4 MMA, 12-0 UFC), here are the highlights…

On How Big The Fight Is: "It's Pacquiao-Mayweather in MMA. It's one guy going up in weight to fight the bigger and better – supposedly better – guy."

On The Boxing Aspect Of The Fight: "Anderson is a better boxer at this point. There's some things I've learned about Anderson that I think I can help Georges with," he said. "Because I've worked with [Anderson] closely, and Anderson is a very clever fighter."

His Feelings On The Fight: "That's one fight I don't think you have to worry about Anderson not getting up for," he said. "He will get up for [St-Pierre]. Because he doesn't always get up for fights like talented people do at times. Sometimes it comes so easily and natural to them that they get a bit lazy. But for that fight, I expect both guys to be at their best. Georges is stronger physically and can rough him up on the inside. Anderson's more of a technician and knows distance. Distance is the key to that fight."
