Classless: Antonio Margarito Mocks Freddie Roach’s Parkinson’s Disease
Want to really piss off your opponent before a big fight? If you’re Antonio Margarito and looking to get under the skin of Manny Pacquiao prior to what may be the biggest fight of your career on November 13th, then there may be no better way than to diss his close friend and trainer Freddie Roach.
But Roach has been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for many years now, yet is still able to train arguably the best boxer in the world today. Roach’s disorder is apparently a laughing matter for Margarito, who was caught on camera making fun of the popular trainer.
Call it what you want, but it’s absolutely tasteless to mock a man suffering from a life-threatening disease. Not to mention Manny Pacquiao is quite possibly the nicest person on the planet before he decides he wants to kick your ass. Even if the game is mental, Margarito has to know he’s walking into a buzz saw on Saturday night. If the buzz saw is pissed off, he’ll be in a world of hurt.
