Freddie Roach: Do Not Be Surprised if Manny Pacquiao Ends Fight in First Round

In case you missed it, we shared the video on Tuesday night of Antonio Margarito and Brandon Rios mocking Freddie Roach’s mannerisms (must check out the pics). Roach is Manny Pacquiao’s trainer and he developed Parkinson’s Disease following his boxing career. The video was pulled by the reporter who created it, but its message has not disappeared: Margarito and his crew are a bunch of childish idiots who lack respect and regard for others.

Needless to say, Freddie Roach was livid when word of the video got back to him. According to tweets by LA Times reporter Lance Pugmire (as relayed by Luke Thomas), “Freddie Roach says he’ll never again talk to Margarito and his camp based on their videotaped mocking of his Parkinson’s symptoms.” Here’s the money shot though, “Roach said it ‘shows the character’ on top of loaded-gloves scandal, and said, “don’t be surprised if this fight ends in the first round.”

Roach (and any sane-minded creature in the boxing community) already had something against Antonio Margarito for unethically loading up his gloves with plaster wraps. Now the stakes have been raised to an entirely different level since things have become personal. When Manny Pacquiao steps into the ring, he’s not fighting for himself, his fans, and a multi-million dollar paycheck; he will be fighting for the reputation of his respected trainer, Freddie Roach.

    This time the boxing commissions of America should ban Margarito and his trainer for life for the distastefu, disrespectful l and insulting video. They did not only insult Roach but also the millions of people around the world who are afflicted with Parkinson’s.

    This time Margarito and his trainer has crossed the line. This video is comparable to the video of Mayweather insulting Pacquiao. Margarito should be ban for life now by the boxing commissions in the US as the video not only insulted Roach but also the millions of people around the world afflicted with Parkinson’s.

    thinking that margarito should be given a chance to fight. but after the action they have given, i think the california athletic commission was right. margarito should be banned forever even for other sports. only death can give him a chance to fight, if he can fight when he is dead.

    it is called the “The Art of War.” whey (margarito camp) were prepared physically but they were not prepared mentally.

    Margarito and his group are pathetic fools. They are all bad examples to SOCIETY in general after making fun of someone’s affliction. People with a disease have no choice but to accept it. In contrast, Margarito had the choice whether to load his gloves illegally or not! With Margarito’s character exposed through his mockery, who would think he was innocent of illegal hand wraps!!!!! What an expose of a stupid criminal before everyone’s eyes!!!!

    Freddie Roach is a complement of Manny Pacquiao and vice versa — the father and son in boxing. When Pacquiao seems to ignore his critics, Freddie attacks them with his verbal outspoken assault.

    On Dennis Guillermo’s Examiner site, Robert Garcia claims that Margacheato and Rios didn’t know Freddie Roach has Parkinson’s Disease. In Eli Sechbach’s video, Robert Garcia clearly is seen egging on Rios to imitate Freddie’s mannerism. Margacheato’s camp is a camp of LIARS!

    You just angered Pacman all the more. Round 1 is all there is to it for you Margacheato!

    Pacquiao is fierce inside the ring and gentle and kind outside. This incident is outrageous and Pacquiao knows he can only settle this inside the ring with the Cheato.
    Now I am convinced this fight won’t go the distance and we will witness a chopped down tree fall on the canvas like a log. The wrath of Pac carries with it the karma
    on his opponents. Very exciting this Saturday! Could hardly wait!
