MACAU -- Shortly after the incident between Manny Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach and members of Brandon Rios' training staff, Roach expressed concern that it would upset Pacquiao.

Well, Roach doesn't have to worry. As Pacquiao was concluding his work Wednesday Macau time by hitting the mitts, he suddenly threw a kick at Roach.

It was making light of when Rios conditioning coach Alex Ariza had kicked Roach earlier in the day.

Pacquiao, who was napping in his suite when the incident occurred, clearly was having fun with things.

"What happened today didn't affect me at all," Pacquiao said. "Outside of the ring, I believe everyone should love one another."
