Default Re: Roach: A year to remember

Pac - was beating Marquez, but got caught slipping twice (not Roach's fault)

Kahn - was outboxing Garcia, got caught with equilibrium shot, didn't hold (not Roach's fault)

Chavez - fought a MUCH better fighter, was smoking pot during training camp (not Roach's fault)

The one thing I do notice here is a lack of discipline and focus. I do believe Roach is training too many fighters these days, but his superstars are responsible for their own discipline and focus. Roach can't force Chavez to give up drugs during camp. He can't force Pacquiao to quit one of his billion jobs and cut the giant entourage of leaches out of his life.

I think you guys are being disrespectful to Roach. Look at Manny's head movement and strategy against Marquez, it was GREAT. Had he stuck with the game plan and stayed focused, he was on his way to stopping the Mexican great.
