Ariza is part of Roach's camp. A trainer without sparring, equipment, or assistant trainers can do very little, even if theyre amazing.
and regardless, Khan looks sharper in his punches, and the generic guard Roach taught him helps him to not take as many punches and survive against shots that used to **** his day up. You cant just say that conditioning was the only change.
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.
Of course Pacquiao is technically skilled, look at his offensive arsenal you numbskull. and hes been a 'two handed fighter' since his featherweight days, I dont know where this myth perpetuated from.
and that high guard defense wasnt in place or useful with Khan's old trainers pre Roach, so apparently he did the right thing.
people keep on *****ing about the trainer, but in reality Roach is a good fit for Manny and Khan, who else would you rather see them with?
