Roach: "We Have to Work the Body Early and Break Margarito Down"


"He's a strength coach. He's not a trainer. Remember that," Roach said of Margarito's trainer. "He doesn't know anything about boxing." So went the war of words between Roach and his rival, Robert Garcia, in the run-up to the showdown between Roberto Garcia (no relation) and Antonio Margarito this Saturday, May 8, in Mexico. In the video interview below, Roach also talks about Garcia's need to go for the body often and early, as well as a possible fight between Roach's superstar pupil, Manny Pacquiao, and Margarito--assuming the latter bests Garcia, of course.
