There were reports that during their recent press conference, coaches Freddie Roach and Floyd Mayweather, Sr. were not on their best behaviour.

The two combatants, Ricky Hatton and Manny Pacquiao, were civil and even joking around. But not their trainers.

The two world-class trainers were exchanging verbal jabs, and were too busy hurling insults at one another. It wasn't confirmed who started it, but it might have stemmed from Roach's bold prediction that his boy, Manny Pacquiao, will knockout Ricky Hatton in the third round.

Floyd Mayweather, Sr. might have felt insulted with that prediction that he was heard saying that Freddie doesn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.

Childish as it may seem, who knows if there really is bad blood between the two coaches. It just might be a marketing strategy to further hype their upcoming fight.

But this time, the hype is coming from the coaches, not the fighters.

Whatever it is, that their doing, and it's working for me! I'm so hyped for this fight that I can't wait till May 2.
