Corners

Still fresh in fight followers' memories is a video in which Antonio Margarito and Brandon Rios poked fun at Freddie Roach's Parkinson's disease. The fighters (both trained by Robert Garcia) would later apologize, but Roach remains upset about the incident -- and Manny Pacquiao hasn't forgotten, either. Roach and Garcia rate as the gold standard among today's cornermen, but Pacquiao and Roach could channel the extra motivation into an edge on Saturday night.

Advantage: Pacquiao
