On Freddie Roach Video Clip: Family History



"My dad was a very physical person. He was really, really mean, and he could fight. When he used to tell me, 'I'll knock you out.' And I'd say, 'I don't doubt it.' Nobody in my house was really strong enough to stand up to him, and he was real bad to my mother. She took more beatings than all of us. And she took beatings for us at times, too, sticking up for us.

"She came downstairs with two black eyes one day and I looked at her and laughed and I said, 'You're pretty tough.' I think she hated me for a long time for that. I'm trying to make up for it. I don't like that shit. But it's the way it was. That's the way it was and she was a very -- she was a tough lady. And that's why I take care of her. She can have whatever she wants."
