If you are a roach fighter than you are focusing on attack. None of roach’s fighter display solid defense. But Khan’s problem is not bc roach sharing his time with manny but rather his chin. It is terrible, so no matter which trainer he will always have that problem against him unless he somehow box like Floyd jr by his next fight.

hatton boxed well against malinaggi because his punches are weak, and against castillo because he is slow as hell, he should have tried against a top ten before manny to see where he really was

Hatton improved tremendously when he switched trainers. He boxed better than he ever did in his life against Malignaggi. He lost the first round due to nerves, settled down and took the rest. But Paulie is not a puncher. Pacquiao was the wrong guy for Hatton to fight at that time. The first time Hatton got hit really hard he reverted back to the old Hatton—because skills have to be instinctive against a big banger—and there’s no possible way to accomplish that in 2 training camps.

Khan and Roach sense he is the planner miss judged Garcia due to his fight with Morrales. They thought Garcia was a push over. Shows you Morrales even up in age is a hell of a fighter and Garcia is not that bad.

also, one important fact people missed is garcia said he didnt step on the gas until after the 3rd round, meaning he is alot faster than kahn thought he was because he didnt show all his cards at once, even if they rematch, kahn still doesnt know how fast garcias hands really are, he just know that garcia swings wide to go around the guard…some fighters just have you number. kahn needs to look a the younger k-bro, he stopped the chinny talk by NOT letting fighter get to it, it may be boring but he piled up a really good record. his chin is no where near as good as his older brother, but his fundamentals are better so he is considered the better fighter

its simple, kahn chin doesnt hold up to a punch he dosent see, when you punch with him at the same time he comes in, he will probably get bambi legged. million dollar body, 10 cent chin, any trainer can teach a fighter to beat kahn right now, his blue print is set. to help that when he is hurt he doesnt listen to his trainer anyway, freddy told him to hold and let his head clear, he went for the ko when he was still hurt and got koed, switching trainers doent mean jack at this point, look at hatton with the mayweathers, that didnt help much, he just looked confused.

Its quite simple if Khan can beat elite fighters he is an elite fighter but sadly for Khan he cant even beat the top guys in his own division, so until that changes he is just a top ten guy in his division.He needs to get his perception of himself closer in line with reality then try something from there.But sadly for Khan he does not have the tools needed to do anything major on the world elite stage…… He is a Z-level fighter maybe he could get a shot at Randell Bailey or someone like that, wow that would be fully, Bambi all over again…

I agree with that 100% he needs to relax and be patient before throwing those combinations. He’s got the speed, heart of a lion, he has decent power. I really dont even think its his chin. Its his arrogance/over confidence thats why he gets caught up whether he gets caught by a shot or a slug fest. He has to be patient and be smart. Garcia camp knew what they were doing they baited him to come in and fight angry and he got caught anyone would have went to sleep with that kind of punch landing in the neck area where all the nerves are, took out his equilibrium. He needs to just out box his opponents he will be fine if he does that. He definately is an exciting fighter to watch and he can come back strong.

A change is definitely needed. Reguardless whether folks want to say it’s Roach’s fault or not is irrelevant at this time. It’s become obvious that Kahn and perhaps his people aren’t happy with the fact that Roach is spending the bulk of his time with Manny and not giving Kahn the attention he needs to develop into an ATG. If he isn’t happy he needs to change. He will do himself or Roach no good by staying in a situation he isn’t comfortable or happy with!!!!

You’re so ignorant HH… How many times was Archie Moore knocked out??? Ezzard Charles knocked out??? Joe Walcott knocked out??? Harold Johnson knocked out??? JIm Corbett knocked out??? How many times was Tommy Hearns knocked out in his 20′s??? … Fighters do get knocked out, it’s an occupational hazard. You’re not a fighter and are just spouting nonsense. Khan is getting knocked out, not because he’s meeting ATG fighters or doesn’t have the talent for hard distance fights, but because he is lacking all-around skills.. If he gets a trainer who can teach him something he’ll get a lot better, believe me …. Wladimir made the change, and he was also stopped 3 times in his 20′s.. That’s a lot of stoppages, but not something that can’t be overcome if you master a few new skills.

Point is Khan is being koed with Roach as his trainer so switching trainers want hurt him. At this point with a new trainer he can only go up cause he is being beat down with Roach.

“Khan put 3 solid rounds in the bank when he was caught by a countering left hook on the inner jaw just below the ear.” Exactly correct. And even though Garcia might have been aiming for Khan’s chin, that punch WAS a lucky punch given where it landed and the damage it did to Khan. Garcia was swinging up and in–ESTIMATING where Khans jaw was because he couldn’t really see it or tell from the position he was in at the time he threw the punch. But he got Khan good right below the ear, and that punch shocked Khan from his head to his toes—very hard to recover from–for any boxer!

Yo, HH. 1. To this day it is said about any Klitschko opponent that if they can only get close enough to catch him on the chin they can beat him. 2. Kahn is a warrior — he did fight Maidana and please remember that Kahn chased Bradley around trying to make a fight with him. 3. No one is suggesting Kahn has Klitschko’s attributes. The point was Kahn needs to play more to his strengths and stop trying to trade/bang. 3. I too saw Garcia timing Kahn. I knew he was getting closer as the rounds progressed. Kahn needs to learn to recognize when he’s becoming vulnerable, and shift gears 4. He’s only 25, still hungry to be great — not sure if he’ll make it, I think he’ll top out at “very good”, but one thing is for certain — Kahn will make it enjoyable to watch.

Agreed – well said! I think the kid has great potential, he’s still only 25 and from what I’ve read and heard from him recently he wants to change, he wants to improve. I think the glass-jaw business is exaggerated – he clearly doesn’t have the greatest punch resistance however I don’t believe he gets buzzed by pathetic punchers – just the opposite is true as Prescott, Maidana & Garcia are recognized big punchers. I want the kid to go back to being a boxer not a macho fighter, that is what he does best.

Mr. Big Shot

Khan’s a child star that hasn’t really made it as an adult yet. He certainly has the ability to win a title or titles again, and he has the vulnerabilities to lose them again. I don’t think he’ll ever be a great – very few are, but I’m not sure he should have lost that last fight. I’m sure he’s made a mint since turning pro and he should be grateful for that.

Posted September 3, 2012 5:40 pm 


TARK

HH you’re full of it and don’t know what you’re talking about… Khan put 3 solid rounds in the bank when he was caught by a countering left hook on the inner jaw just below the ear. The hook turned over perfectly on the index knuckle which gave it a crushing impact.. Khan was decked hard and badly hurt, which is a situattion MANY ATG fighters have found themselves in—winning a fight when they got nailed. It’s a case of clinching, holding, avoiding exchanges, and limiting further damage as much as possible. Khan made it through the 3rd round without trying to clinch. He traded punches and took several more shots. Between rounds Roach asked him 3 times if he was okay and said, “You have to clinch okay? You have to hold okay?” But Khan is one of the worst clinchers I’ve ever seen who’s actually won world titles. Ditto for his infighting ability. You don’t learn skills through osmosis. You overcome weaknesses by working hard to obliterate them every day—for months and months and months, until they become your strengths. Since Khan had the same problems 2 years ago versus Maidana, it’s not getting done — time for a change — if it’s not too late already.

It’s unprofessional the way Khan is treating Freddie, he went to Roach at his lowest point in his career and Roach took him in with open arms and transformed Amir into a star, he deserves better than being used as an excuse for Khan’s glass chin.

TARK

@Patrick2…. Great post. Wladimir Klitschko didn’t screw around after his KO loss to Sanders. He knew something was wrong with his game and changed trainers—but Wladimir was against clinching. He said, “Clinching is holding and holding is a foul—a boxer must never clinch.” After his KO loss to Brewster WK finally woke up and smelled the coffee. Today Wladimir clinches like a bear-trap. When David Haye caught him with a huge shot Vlad tied him up in a 10th of a second, almost as fast as Floyd grabbed Mosley when Shane nailed him …. The fact is, if you lack all-around skills, you’re chances of becoming an ATG are substantially less … and Khan wants to be an ATG.

Posted September 3, 2012 12:28 pm

Perhaps it’s not so much Khan leaving Roach as much as Roach dumping Khan.Roach is too astute a trainer not to notice these faults,Khan is so far up himself he doesn’t stand criticism well and obviously does not follow advice,,,,,Also what I see of his family they treat him like a god and none of his mistakes are his fault.He should take a reality check and take the knowledge test….As for going with Old Prune Face as trainer that would be a complete nightmare…Stop looking for a scapegoat,you got nailed,regroup and get back in line…

Posted September 3, 2012 12:10 pm

I agree, no one’s blaming Roach for the Garcia defeat, but I do think the kid needs a trainer who is going to be with him all the way during training for a fight. I’d like to see a trainer who will stop Khan doing all this macho rubbish, take him back to being a boxer and give him some defensive understanding. I’m rather old-fashioned as well because I think he should fight more regularly – in fact I think a lot of modern day boxers would benefit from that.

Outside of pacquiao what has roach ever done? I mean really? Bernabie Concepcion? No. Brian Minto? Uhh, no. Gerry Penalosa? Yeah, right.

Outside of the problem Khan has with the travel to pacland, look at two pieces of video:

1. When he got hurt vs. Lamont Cheaterson, listen to the instructions roach gave Khan in the corner. Tell me what you hear.

2. When he got hurt against Garcia listen to the corner. Roach “you alright son? Khan affirms. Roach again: You alright? Uhh Freddie he said he was okay the first time.

Then on top of that, no ice bag on Khan’s neck when he got back to the corner. No slap in the face. No real instructions.

Maybe Khan has gone as far as he can with Roach. After how many years training at the Wildcard Khan still has no inside game and has gotten into the bad habit of mimicking Pac’s style and moves. Khan is a different bodytype to Pac completely and has a different natural style. If Khan hasn’t added the missing parts to his arsenal then maybe he needs to get away from Roach and Pac and concentrate on developing his own style and skills. Khan can still achieve a lot I believe but he’ll only do it by finding success through his own style and not going hell-for-leather like the Pac-Man!!

So many ignorant boxing “experts” out there! Lucky punch that got Khan? Watch the fight again right from the start and focus on what Garcia has been doing…and what he was trying to time. Lucky punch my banana! Furthermore, Garcia SHOULD dispose of Morales early. Overpower him with youthful energy and power. Morales gets dangerous if he sticks around. He WILL get his shots in. The guy gets knocked the eff out and the excuse is “lucky” punch…new trainer. New writers please!

I actually am beginning to feel a wee bit sorry for Khan, he has everything a boxer would wish for apart from the ability to absorb a big shot on the chin, having a weak chin is not his fault, he needs to be more patient and keep his chin tucked in better, he leaves it out to dry at the end of every one of his flurrys and he pays for it.

Posted September 3, 2012 10:15 am 


Neil (pomy)

I think a change will do Khan some good. Full respect to Freddie Roach, I like him as a man and a trainer, but a new perspective could do Khan a lot of good. Khan will have learned a lot from Roach but other trainers could improve Khan in different areas. Maybe Emanuel Steward could be the guy. Khan needs to becoming a little tougher, sneakier, use his brain more and Emanuel Steward could be the man to do that. A change in trainers will do no harm at all (as long as the new trainer is of a similiar standard to Roach … and no one in Britain can claim that …. so it is a guy like Emanuel Steward will fit the bill.

Posted September 3, 2012 10:06 am 


Dan

Khans problem is he refuses to accept the fact he has weak punch resistance and also doesn’t have that great power. I understand that no boxer would want to admit it and as much as Khans critics mention his glass jaw I don’t know any world class boxer who has ever admitted they have a ‘glass jaw’. People like Wlad Klitschko realised that they wasn’t good once they was hit so they adjusted but he still didn’t believe he had a glass jaw and to this day watching the footage back of his losses I agree, he just didn’t have the mentality to fight through adversity and folded but was never laid out. Khan is the opposite, he belives in his mind he is a warrior who has KO power and a good jaw and when he’s tagged he tries fighting back and I think he was lucky to not be sparked by Maidana, he isn’t willing to change enough to make him a force again because he believes he doesn’t need to. He has the physical talents but I’m not sure whether he has the ring IQ needed to rise from this.

Khan is really coming across like a spoiled brat, he knew he’d have to share Freddie with Manny when he joined and he knew damn well that Manny was the top dog at the wild card. Freddie rebuilt Khan after the Prescott defeat and this is how he’s going to get repayed, Khan needs to wake up.

To those who say Kahn will never overcome is “glass jaw” remember Klitschko was also criticized for the same reason. But he overcame it by dictating a style of fighting that suited him — use his size and reach. Kahn needs to do the same thing. Also, Kahn’s chin is probably no worse than Klitschko’s, after all Kahn was able to survive, and win, against the hard-punching Marco Maidana.

i have all respect for khan. he has achieved some notable accolades in boxing and most of them with the help of freddie roach. it would be a big mistake for khan to leave the wild card gym. khan must be feeling ashamed for losing two fights in a row while supposedly being at his peak. his own ego is getting in the way. this guy needs a slice of humble pie and be grateful he was able to reach the top at an early stage of his career with the guidance of roach, short as it may be. instead of playing the blame game, he should just suck it up and come back with a vengeance.

And MrKO is right… If you want to be a great champion you can’t have a trainer who’s main focus is directed elsewhere. You want a guy who’s going to put his biggest chips on you.

Posted September 3, 2012 2:14 am

Khan has unbelievable potential… But he’s missing some requisite skills on defense, infighting, and clinching to be an ATG world champion, which is his goal.. This is what Khan is beginning to understand. He knows if the doesn’t fix the problems with a masterful trainer who CAN fix them, he’s just to to suffer more smashing head shots in close touch and go fights, such as the Peterson and Maidana fights … and eventually more spectacular KO losses, such as the Garcia fight.

Posted September 3, 2012 2:06 am 


MrKO

Khan needs to change trainer, not because Roach is a bad trainer but because Roach has too much on his plate with so many fighters. Roach is only has a part-time trainer for Khan. I mean Khan’s training camp was in 3 different continents to accommodate Manny’s schedule.

If Khan isn’t happy with Roach, then there’s no point staying. The relationship just won’t work.

I am afraid that Khan is still wrestling with the fact that he probably has reached his ceiling as a good but not great fighter. Sure he is only 25 years old but he is a mentally shot fighter who will never be able to live down his 2 devastatin KOS. The trainer issue is a smokescreen.

Posted September 2, 2012 9:47 pm 


TARK

I’m not saying Freddie Roach is a bad trainer. If you’re a fighter with a complete set of skills when he gets you, he’s very good… If you’re a fighter who can’t fight inside, and can’t clinch—such as Amir Khan—Freddie is powerless to bring you up to speed in these techniques. He wasn’t a masterful infighter and clincher himself and really doesn’t understand how to teach these abilities.

Posted September 2, 2012 9:25 pm 


TARK

Khan needs a NEW and much BETTER trainer… Amir displayed the exact same problems in the Marcos Maidana fight that he displayed versus Danny Garcia — 1. Khan can’t clinch with any skill, which is unacceptable for a fighter with his level of experience… 2. Khan can’t fight inside with any skill, which is ridiculous for his level of experience… 3. Khan tends to hide behind his gloves and take unreal punishment because he’s always getting killed on the inside. Because of his lack of skills he can’t fight back effectively… 4. When Khan is getting murdered on the inside he tends to run like a dog because he’s dead out of options …. Garcia should not have many problems with Morales.. Garcia is not looking for the KO, but if it comes he’ll take it. Danny is a very smart fighter, he DID look for the KO versus Khan—because of Khan’s technical vulnerabilities and his penchant for getting smashed with big shots.. The first thing you do is take what your opponent gives you. Garcia knew Khan well from studying his fights. Garcia knows Morales isn’t as fast, youthful, and powerful as Khan … and presents a different set of problems.

Changing trainers won’t hurt Kahn. Many/most fighters have changed trainers. Each trainer brings a different perspective and approach — a change will likely help Kahn. IF Morales gets into better shape (last time he looked terrible, and I mean that in a bad way, not a pun) this go around, I think he has a good chance at beating Gracia.
