Freddie Roach's Strong Words On Fedor
"Fedor is flat-footed, has no technique, but he can punch," Roach said after the ping-ping-pings of a well-worn round timer died down and onlookers cleared out of his popularized Wild Card Boxing Club. "That always helps. He's accurate. He'll follow you right to the floor, so he's aggressive. But that aggressiveness can be used to our advantage, I think."
"If you give him momentum," "he'll kill you."
"A lot of guys lose the fight before it starts," "Fedor is like Mike Tyson. A lot of guys are scared of him. So the mental game is so important that you can't be scared. You have to be fearless against him."
“If I saw Fedor in the street, I wouldn’t be scared of him,” he says with another smile. “But I’d be wrong.”
“As far as his stand up game, we’ll kill Fedor" “If we can keep the fight standing up, if he chooses to fight us like a man, we’ll dominate him.”
“Just be smart with it,” “Use your angles when they’re necessary, but after you land a combination, because after you land a combination with Fedor, he’s going to throw back. That’s his instinct. He throws one punch after the other. He’s very predictable. He makes the same moves every time. He’s very common. His boxing game is weak.”
“From what I can see, I think Andre’s going to be sharper,” he says. “I think we’re going to knock him out.”
****Too Bad Fedor is Quietly taking this comments down and will Surprise Roach by Beating Arlovski in his Own Game, which is through Boxing, its like what he did TK and Sylvia****

Arlovski was always one of my picks 2 beat fedor an i thought he'd win on the feet, just a few weeks an we'll find out if he can, with all the pride guys dropping recently i wouldn't b surprised 2 see Fedor KO'd in the first 2 rounds.

I think what Roach says is true but I don't know if Arlovski is the one to do this to him. The thing with MMA, it's more than just boxing so it doesn't matter what roach says.
Arlovski might be winning the stand up with Fedor and Fedor will jsut take him down and beat him there.
I don't know if there's any MMA fighter that really truly has great boxing skills, at least not on the chamionship level. That takes much to long to accomplish.
