Default Are today's trainers better that the trainers of old?

Many times on here we argue about the merits of modern fighters versus old time fighters.

But how about the trainers? Does anyone feel that today's boxing coaches are more knowledgeable in the sweet science than their predecessors?

LOL like Pacquiao vs Mayweather?

Freddie Roach vs Teddy Atlas?

Roach trained under legendary trainer Eddie Futch.

While Teddy Atlas' journey in boxing began in his early teens when he was invited Atlas to come and train in Catskill, New York with Cus D'Amato. D'Amato was a legendary trainer in the area and he took Atlas under his wing.

We all know Futch and Cus had no love for each other!

They are not as knowledgable. They would perhaps be better amateur trainers. The style most trainers teach is based on amateur success anyway, as has been pointed out numerous times by Ray Corso.

That does not mean there are not a few moderns who are exceptional and equal to the oldtimers. Personally, I do not feel it is rocket science.

Today's trainers are just coaches. Not really teachers.

Just as you get exceptional fighters every once and a while, you occasionally get an exceptional trainer. On average, I'm not sure if they're any better or any worse today than they were in past times.

Pretty sure those two are fighters mate.

Anyway, like the fighters, trainers have dropped off dramatically due to numbers in the game which is going to decrease talent, and make it easier for any old schmo to train people with wacky ****.

The amount of videos I see by faux trainers that talk about weird new punches and silly, over analysed **** that they have just literally made up themselves is amazing. Crazy stuff like 'rear hook, back foot punch'...

I saw a video recently that was analysing some 'new' punches, and giving them never before heard of names, in what was clearly just basic techniques improvised in the heat of battle, ie. a 1-2 that was thrown at a slightly different angle because the fighter had noticed the opponent was moving his head over a little. That's all it was, and yet this video went on about all this ridiculous analysis and called it something crazy like 'the right angled, off center, jab, rear straight hand' or some ****ing thing like that. Boxing hipsters.

I dunno! I give up!

There seemed to be more in the past though, wouldn't you say?

Angelo Dundee, Eddie Futch, George Benton, Cus D'Amato, Freddie Brown, Ray Arcel, Gil Clancy, Emmanuel Steward. Just to mention a few that were active into the 1980s at least.
