Default Freddie Roach talking about Amir Khan working with Virgil Hunter....New interview.

It's only short, but Roach is flogging that dead horse again with "He told me to fire chavez jr and Pacquiao" when Khan already categorically denied this in another interview.

Khan didn't tell him that

Khan's team did... It probaly went along the lines: "Hi Freddie i'm sorry but were going to leave you as Amir wants something different lalala - The only option to keep him would be if you could give him your full attention - no? ok that's fine good luck"

People get sh*t mixed up so fast...

The interviewer here is also wrong he says: "He says you weren't really up to level as a trainer"

F*ck off did he say that... He said he felt he needed someone who was capable of giving him more time...

4:15 for start & 5:40 key moment

I doubt Khan said that, his team probably mentioned it in the 'you've got too many fighters' sense and Roach putting 2+3 together came out with 7.

Let's be honest now. Khan left Roach because he thinks Hunter can fix his glass jaw.

Not quite true.

He thinks Hunter can teach him to prtect him glass jaw better than Roach did.

That's what's probably happened. Roach has revealed himself not to be the most truthful of people (what with this whole recent JMM testing thing). It's ludicrous to suggest Khan's team would ask him to drop Pacquiao - as evident by Khan in that interview being surprised to hear such claims. Like you've said, it was probably:

Khan's dad: "You've got too many people you handle - Pacquiao, Chavez and all them guys."

Roach to media: "They told me to drop Pacquiao and Chavez"

The interviewer's a cunt. Same goes for other reporters who falsely made out that Khan was blaming his defeat on Roach's illness. It fuels unnecessary beef.

Khan will blame his defeat on anyone but himself.

Theres a strong possibility that Amir Khan actually thinks that he has
an iron chin aswell, the bloke is deluded and its affected his progress as a boxer.

How can you work on your flaws - if you dont think you have any!

Yeah, sure:

@AmirKingKhan: I blame myself for the losses in my career. Not blaming @FreddieRoach or anyone. I just needed a change.

That's him blaming anyone but himself, isn't it.

There was another boxer commenting on Amir saying Freddie health was deteriorating and it was affecting his ability to train or something. I'd never heard anything like that. Anyone know the facts about that?

Roach comes across as very bitter these days.

Although Khan may tweet otherwise, I do think this is very true to why Khan has stagnated and not adapted to his glass jaw. Inside fighting is another huge flaw that Khan has and what lost him the Peterson fight.

With the way Khan stacks up rounds, but has still lost 3 fights I think with the right defence and a revamped mindset, he could still do big things.

I think the mindset he has is probably the biggest hurdle he will no clear.
