As pointed out in Mirror article, Mayweather has been involved in seven alleged instances of physical assault against five different women.

Report said that in 2012, Floyd Mayweather Jr. spent two months in a Nevada detention facility for an attack on Josie Harris, who is the mother of three of his four children.

According to Coach Freddie Roach, the tarnished past of Mayweather is a very strong factor that motivates Pacquiao to beat his opponent.

With a win against Mayweather, Pacquiao hopes that it will give a positive impact on his homeland (Philippines), where he served as a congressman. The fight will serve as a campaign against Violence Against Women and their Children (VAWC).

In an interview with USA Today, Roach said: "Manny is really against domestic violence. It is a big issue maybe in the Philippines for him and being a congressman he can control some of that stuff."

"That is a big plus for me that Manny does not like the guy, I think the killer instinct is going to come back a lot faster."

Roach also disclosed that this is the first time since working with Pacquiao that he can sense that his man does not like his opponent.

Pacquiao vs Mayweather $300 million super-fight on May 2 in MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada is labeled by Roach as the fight of "good vs evil".

"(I see the fight as) good against evil, yes. I have even thought about bringing a couple of the metro cops from Vegas in to tell Manny how many times (Mayweather) has been arrested and how bad of a guy he is, but I decided I can't go that far", Roach said.

"For the first time in my life with Manny Pacquiao, this is the first fighter he hasn't liked. I can tell.", he added.

Roach himself also stand against domestic violence.
