Roach Explains Peterson Incident: I Did Take Advantage

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN’S trainer Freddie Roach has turned spy for the day to give his man a world title edge.

Roach struck lucky when he was given the chance to get up close with Khan’s opponent Lamont Peterson ahead of Saturday’s fight.

Washington-based Peterson and Roach were working together with the US Olympic team.

And Khan’s coach admits he used his sneak preview to get the lowdown on the 27-year-old’s strengths and weaknesses.

Roach said: “When I was training the Olympic kids, Lamont was on board as one of the sparring partners. He was one of my pupils.

“It all meant that I ended up working two rounds of mitts with him. He’s very, very strong, especially on the inside, and will be a difficult opponent.

“I learnt a lot about him and I don’t think his coach Barry Hunter was all that impressed. I think he was p****d off, but it wasn’t really my fault.

“Barry looked at me and smiled. He knew it shouldn’t have happened and so did I, but it did.

“Did I take advantage of it? Yes, I did.”
