Video Hype: Margarito "Apologizes" to Freddie Roach

Top Rank's site posted what is being titled an apology from Antonio Margarito to Freddie Roach, but is really more of an official statement trying to shift the blame to those who "edited" the video. For the record, there were two "official" versions of the video uploaded. The first led everyone to the outrage over the contents. The second was edited in a clear attempt to make Margarito look better, and to cut stablemate Brandon Rios entirely out of the video, because his "contribution" to the brief segment couldn't be turned into anything but a mockery of Roach's Parkinson's disease.

But this is what Margarito had to say. How you view it is up to you.

The good news is we're about done with all of this. Margarito and Manny Pacquiao will fight in two days, and then we move on. Unless there's something really major to come out of this, which there likely isn't, this will be our last post dedicated to the video ordeal.
