Sorry Early, I know you want him ignored and that, but I quite like this troll. He's funny.

It doesn't bother me tbh

I don't think he's very good though, no creativity.

back on topic. great interview. really rate virgil very highly

very switched on and actually thinks about improving his fighters which i think the majority dont do

just repeat the same things time and time again.

The biggest impact Hunter is ganna have on Khan technically, IMO. Is showing him how to make better use of his speed and use it to the maximum advantage. He's ganna have him throwing curve balls, in other words varying the speed of his punches. Khan is fast, but with the way he fights that speed has not really been an advantage for him in the past because he does EVERYTHING at the same pace. So the opponents get used to his speed and can start timing him after a while. With Hunter hopefully we'll see him more settled and not so frantic, picking his punches and throwing curve balls at his opponents.

Very good points from Hunter there, Khan needed a coach who can really talk to him and make understand the real goals and targets of this sport and its never all about trying to KO someone or pleasing the crowd or losing his cool over trash talking (Angel) its about getting the job done in the ring with low risk which in the long run builds a winning record and places you high up the rankings and giving you the top fights around your weight eg. Ward.

I am glad now Khan left Roach who sends his fighters out to destroy not to box, let's hope Khan can go back to boxing instead of fighting in the ring.

I'll reserve judgement until he's hit with a hard shot.

Then we'll see how he reacts.

Nah you're right there, compared to some of you're heartfelt posts, it's not funny at all.
