Roach: Angel Garcia Got Under Our Skin, Guess It Paid Off

Freddie Roach, trainer of Amir Khan, admitted he almost stopped the fight after Amir Khan suffered a third round knockdown in his fight with Danny Garcia, who landed a huge left hook that ultimately proved Khan's undoing, with the Briton eventually being stopped by referee Kenny Bayliss a round later.

"He got caught with a shot right on the money and that was it, he never really recovered after the first shot," said Roach to Sky Sports. "When he came back to the corner he wasn't responding really well in that minute break. I said I''m going to stop the fight but he said 'no, I'm ok'. He showed a lot of heart. We should have boxed a little bit more but that's the way things go."

Khan had dominated the first two and a half rounds of the fight in Las Vegas, with his customary hand speed and power leaving Garcia with little room to adjust. But Roach believes that proved Khan's undoing.

"We got a reckless," he said. "He was having so much success he thought he could just overwhelm him. Then the guy threw a big overhand shot from leftfield and it landed. He's a big puncher and he's very strong. His Dad got under our skin a little and I guess it paid off. Hopefully he'll give us a rematch in England and we can reverse this."

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]Why couldn't Manny Pacquiao just agree to do the testing with USADA if he was willing to agree to do the testing with NSAC? Is there some kind of special way the NSAC use their needles? Floyd beat Marquez and came to the table to agree to 50/50, 10MIL weight penalty over the WW ...

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER]I know I shouldn't but if Pac agreed to Floyd's request years ago then why did Pacquiao go and fight Clottey? This answer should be good.....[/QUOTE] The racist troll will ignore you when it comes to a question that doesn't suit his agenda. He's just an alt that is spammin...

[QUOTE=Panginoon]It's not even worth arguing with the Floyd fairies, they're still insinuated on the whole OSDT thing when Pac already agreed to it years ago. Floyd Stans condone ducking and generally acting like chickens. That's why they're Floyd fans.[/QUOTE] I know I shouldn't but if Pac agre...
