Roach to blame for Khan's loss: Floyd Sr.
MANILA, Philippines – Boxing trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. believes Freddie Roach is responsible for Amir Khan’s shocking loss to Lamont Peterson last Saturday in Washington DC.
Roach, who was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame the week before Khan’s bout, said in pre-fight interviews that his boxer had an excellent training camp.
But Khan lost to Peterson, the hometown favorite, by a contested split decision.
“There ain’t no way in hell I would have had Amir Khan fighting like that,” Mayweather told Boxing Scene. “Amir Khan was all over the place.”
Mayweather said that Roach was “definitely the problem” in Khan’s corner.
“(Khan) was all over, he was throwing punches from across the street, and he’s an awkward guy but he can fight better than that. All I can say is he needs some more work, a lot of work,” he added.
Mayweather then claimed that he is a far better trainer than Roach, who has won five Trainer of the Year awards.
“Put us both in the gym, and let us train a fighter and you will see,” he said.Source: www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/12/13/11/roach-blame-khans-loss-floyd-sr
