Default Freddie Roach is overrated

He doesn't seem to give good advice in the corner. Lampley said last night that he was surprised that Roach was giving no tactical advice to Chavez and just telling him to let his hands go. I wasn't.

Chavez Sr. got a message to Jr. at the end of the 10th to stop trying to set his feet before he throws his shots and just punch on the move and then set his feet when Martinez is trapped. This is what was successful for Chavez. If that was 1 round more, I think Chavez would have pulled it out and stopped Martinez, who was badly hurt in fairness.

I could train Pacman and he'd be world champ. Roach didn't improve Khan at all

I think any trainer/cornerman who gains loads of attention has a tendancy to get really overated and seen as a guy who can make anyone superman

look at manny steward was like freddy one time. angelo dundee before him

Well I agree he is overrated because people are treating this guy as the worlds best trainer when he's clearly not.

Pacquiao, Khan now Chavez tasted defeat

I think Roach has been more fortunate to get already great fighters come to him but I don't think he really adds that much

that said, doesn't mean he's a wack trainer, just overrated
