Freddie Roach has addressed the Juan Manuel Marquez “foot-stomping” issue that has become a much discussed topic among Manny Pacquiao fans, and offered what would appear to be a definitive position for Team Pacquiao on the issue. Roach made his comments in a video interview on Saturday night after his fighter Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. successfully defended his title.

Here is the video — the discussion of Marquez’ “foot-stomping’ comes at 1:10:

The main portion of his answer: “When lefties fight righties it happens all the time. When I fought Camacho, I knocked him down by stepping on his foot. It was really a slip, but they counted it anyway. So it happens and it’s part of fighting a southpaw, so I don’t think it should be that big of an issue.”
