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?
pac still the same fighter of back then with little change and kahn is worst technically now then he was then. roach only teach one way he is not versital in styles and linaers proved that he turned him into a brawler which he isnt linaers is a counter puncher roach ruined him.any trainer that can teach the basics and give good coner advice would do wonders with kahn and pac to many to list pick one that not roach and they will improve these 3 fighters.
