Default Jeff Thomas...

You still speak to Michael Gomez?

I've always wanted to know in more depth about when he said Khan was a 'world class boxer with world class weaknesses'

Was he referring to his punch resistance to both the chin and the body?

Or was it more technical things that Freddie Roach could iron out?

Ask him please

world class "vulnerabilities" I think it was.

I've got Gomez on facebook. I think he was fighting last week.

Jody Latham's playing Gomez and Andy off Emmerdale is playing Michael Jennings. Shame to hear he's doing unlicensed fighting now.

onourway, yea the quote mike came out with was hes a world class fighter with world class vunrabilitys. Not really sure if mike knows himself what he ment
No seriously at that time we felt Khan was chinny, infact it was his temple area we thought was the weak spot (unfortunatly proven after the gomez fight) Since then Gomez has spared khan and told me the improvement is huge. Khans defence is much better and he isnt running around the ring as much. He uses much better footwork now and is better balanced.

Gomez was due to box an exhabition fight on a show last sat (nothing to do with me) i dont train Gomez anymore, and wouldnt train him to fight again.

The book is being wrote by a scotish writer called Gregor McKyle, and should be a fantastic read Gomez has promised not to pull any punches. Should be out in a few months.
