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.
You could argue he didn't teach Pac and Khan defence or instil a discipline not to get trigger happy and be intelligent figthers and instil a discipline of hard work in JCC.
