Roach: I Gave Chris Algieri's Stone Necklace To My Dog!

By Radio Rahim

Back in September, during their promotional press tour, WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri gave a stone necklace to Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach.

Algieri, who has a master’s degree in nutrition from Stony Brook University, wears the exact same necklace and claims the stones help create positive energy and provide health benefits. Roach suffers from Parkinson’s syndrome.

Over the last few weeks, Roach has revealed that he has a strong dislike for Algieri, who later tonight in Macau will challenge Roach's fighter, Manny Pacquiao, for the WBO welterweight crown.

"That stone I gave it to my dog, he f***ing loves it. He runs around like crazy. That's his new collar, he loves that stone. I should thank him for my dog. I don't believe in magic. I don't believe in voodoo. There is no way I put a necklace on and my Parkinson's is going to go away. I wish it was that easy," Roach said.

I would not want Freddie Roach's finger on the button that could destroy the world and anihilate mankind. He's bitter..feels he's been cheated with Parkinson's. Would make for a perfect villian. He and that creepy Stephen Hawking!

[QUOTE=TLC8;15122086]And you're a real pile of dog sh*t, clown. Roach's antics are no different than most everyone in the game. Get over it. Doesn't remotely affect you, so you taking a personal offense to anything out of Roach's mouth, is…
