Freddie Roach, trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, sees no issue with Juan Manuel Marquez stepping on Pacquiao's foot during their trilogy bout on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Following Pacquiao's close twelve round majority decision victory, photos surfaced that showed Marquez stepping on the Filipino boxer's foot during several rounds in the contest. Roach doesn't see any issue with Marquez stepping on Pacquiao's foot and he actually teaches boxers to use the same tactic at the Wild Card Gym in California.

"The thing is, it's part of the sport. I teach guys to do it myself. When lefties fight righties, it happens all the time... It happens and it's part of fighting a southpaw, so I don't think it should be that big of an issue," Roach told Fight Saga. "Don't make an issue out of it. That's what happens in boxing, it's part of the sport."
