Roach: I Told Amir in The Fifth, Zab is Looking For Help

Las Vegas, Nevada - Trainer Freddie Roach is buying any of the excuses that are coming from former world champion Zab Judah, who claims WBA/IBF champion Amir Khan stopped him on Saturday night with an illegal low blow. Based on what Roach was able to see at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, Judah was starting to fall apart and looking for a way out in the fifth round.

"You could see earlier in the fifth round that Zab was looking for help. I told Amir that," he said. "Zab was starting to get beat up. He was bleeding early, he was cut from the nose early. He was complaining about his eye.

"That was one of Amir's best performances. That was the toughest, most experienced opponent we've ever fought and we took a shut out. I'm thrilled because it shows he's paying attention to what I'm teaching him. He's a great student and a great listener.

"Amir's best quality is that he listens. He's the best listener I've ever had. I give him some instructions, he follows them to a T. He has a lot of trust in me and I have a lot of trust in him. It's a very solid relationship and it feels good that he trusts me that much."

[QUOTE=thuggin_yo]Show us where Manny said HIMSELF that he is afraid of needles??? It was some idiot in his camp that said that. Sure you can still blame Pac for it, but Pac never said it. Just like Leonard Ellerbe said that Floyd never used Xylocaine, but Floyd himself has yet to deny it and ...

[QUOTE=Dave Rado]Pacquiao didn't rematch Torrecampo or Singsurat. Do you think that means Pac was a paper champion when he beat Barrera? Duran didn't rematch Kirkland Laing or even Ken Buchanan. Do you think Duran was a paper champion? If you do you're an idiot. If you don't, you are guilty of se...

[QUOTE=projectpaki]Think of this subjectively for a second, [U]everybody says Ariza is juicing Manny with illegal substances[/U] thats why hes "scared" of the test, so some claim Ariza is pumping Khan too via guilt by association. Khan on the other hand is not afraid of the tests and is more than...

[QUOTE=vinny2006]Freddie is doing a great job with Amir, but helping him to avoid the guy (Breidis Prescott) that knocked him out won't protect his legacy from being tarnished as a paper champion. This is a 40 year old talking. To be great, you have to make an attempt to rematch, especially if yo...
