Roach Rips Hernandez: The Rat? He's a Piece of Sh*t

By Mike Coppinger

Angel "Memo" Hernandez has made waves over the past few weeks amid allegations from Manny Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach that he has juiced Juan Manuel Marquez. Hernandez, previously known as Heredia, was indicted in the famed BALCO scandal and was adept at creating performance enhancing cocktails that flew under the radar. Hernandez is miffed at the allegations from Roach and has threatened to sue.

"The Rat"? I have nothing to say about him," said Roach. "[He's a] piece of sh*t. They have no case, if they think they're going to sue me, good luck. Get in line."

Marquez fought at welterweight against Floyd Mayweather in 2009 and was noticeably flabby and slow, When he fought Manny Pacquiao a third time in late 2011, he looked very different, with pulsating muscles and a bigger frame, sparking whispers of PED use. Roach believes that if Marquez used PEDs, it will be to his detriment.

"He put on all that muscle and usually people who put on all that muscle exchange and fight," said Roach. "If he does, Manny's ready to fight and Manny's very motivated, it's the best I've seen him in a long time. He's fired up. I'm really happy with the Manny I see right now, he's looking good, he's 100 percent ready for this fight.

"More intense training in the sessions this camp [versus the Bradley camp]. We also boxed less this training camp because he doesn't need those gym wars anymore."

As for the crisp uppercuts Marquez repeatedly caught Pacquiao with in the last encounter, Roach feels they have a plan.

"If he stays in the pocket too long, he'll get hit with those shots," said Roach. "But he gets out of the pocket, he'll be fine. He needs in-and-out motion and side-to-side. We've worked on that, it shouldn't be a problem."

You just have to love the double standards with these idiots. Floyd accuses Pac of juicing and is completely vilified in the media and sued by Pac. Roach accuses JMM of juicing and it is no big deal at all…

This writer is very unprofessional!!! Angel never changed or denied his name!!! His name is, and has always been, Angel Guillermo Heredia Hernandez. In Latin America, much like in Latin Europe, we use both the paternal and maternal last names!…
