Antonio Margarito Video: Boxer Mocks Freddie Roach Before Manny Pacquiao Fight
Just days before his much publicized fight for the junior middleweight title against Manny Pacquiao, Antonio Margarito has been immersed in a major flap as a video has surfaced of Margarito clearly poking fun at Pacquiao's manager, Freddie Roach, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease.
The video, which was part of an interview posted by FanHouse, features Margarito and fellow fighter Brandon Rios—both of whom are trained by Robert Garcia—seemingly making fun of Roach.
According to the Associated Press, "Margarito makes a twisted face and raises a shaking hand for the camera before it pans to Rios, who also makes faces and stutters while saying Pacquiao's name."
Take a look at the two-minute video here.

Reached for comment on Wednesday, Roach told the AP that the Margarito camp "showed their true colors."
He doesn't appear to be buying Garcia's apology.
