Roach is not a perfect trainer. He takes raw fighters with speed and offensive potential and makes them more technically sound, and provides them with a basic, but still much more effective, defensive style to make up for their liabilities. and thats a very good fit for many fighters like Manny and Khan.
all trainers, except for guys like Futch and Arcel, have their weak points and strong points, and theres only so much they can do with a fighter who already have specific physical qualities, skill level and mentality.
get real the only thing roach has taught kahn is to use a high guard to protect his chin and you dont need to be a pro trainer to do that just have common sense. roach teaches his fighters to be more technically sound okay just like he taught pac to be a two handed technician boxer right
open your eyes roach isnt as good as people think he is.
