That's my take too, its going to take more than 8 weeks to make all the improvements needed tactically Roach really did not care about what was firing back and it tells.

Now the thing is Khan being over eager, going off game plan, rushing in are the main problems, if these problems can be fixed than that's 70% of Khan's problems.

Hunter has already said he is not looking to change any of Khan's style but to make adjustments around him, stage 1 was too settle him down be more patient work off the jab, work on spots, control the workrate, circle around, controlling the work rate and no bouncing around leaves more gas in the tank, note Khan did not show any signs of gasing vs Molina.

Thinking time is what Khan needs, he has crazy hand speed I am sure Hunter will get the most out of this great tool which Khan has, if he can learn to control, master, time his speed then wonderful things can still happen but it won't happen over night.

Agreed. Ultimately, I think Roach was too busy and/or Khan wasn't spending enough time in camp. Virgil made a good point when saying in-between fights is when some of the most crucial learning occurs.

True say I hope Roach retires soon I really think his health is effecting him doing his job, people life's are at stake in the ring both Khan and Manny got badly KO that's not good.

I think Hunter will spend more time with Khan, and in turn Khan will spend more time in between fights tuning up.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said that the return of former junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan, slated for April 20, will move to April 27 (Showtime). Nothing official yet with regard to the site or opponent, although he is likely to fight in his native England.

I don't get Khan. He wasted 2 and a half months just lazing around in England when he could have been improving his skill-set. He's back in SF today and has no opponent/venue etc.

He hasn't been working on his skillset but he's been working out 3 times a week in the gym, so he'll be in much better shape. Meaning he'll have more time to work on technique than fitness.

Source? Has he been hitting the gym? All I see on his twitter is him going to different places/countries/restaurants.
