Within 2 fights of hiring Roach, Khan moved up a weight division so his apparent improvement might have been aided by the fact he stopped weight-draining himself at the time.
There's a lot of factors which could account for Khan's apparent improvement in addition to Roach, maybe collectively they all helped, but it's not certain that any single factor was the dominant one.
