Roach: Khan Too Fast For Garcia, Beats Mayweather Too

By Edward Chaykovsky

Trainer Freddie Roach was not impressed with Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s recent twelve round decision win over Miguel Cotto. The fight was a lot more exciting than many people had anticipated. Roach believes Mayweather, at 35-years-old, is starting to slow down and doesn't move around as much. Because of that, Roach says it forces Mayweather to stand his ground and exchange punches with opponents.

One of Roach's star fighters, Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs), is possibly going to face WBC 140-pound champion Danny Garcia (23-0, 14KOs) on July 7th. Roach says Khan is too fast and too strong for Garcia. After Garcia, Khan is planning to move up in weight to 147. If they can secure Mayweather (43-0, 26KOs), Roach is confident Khan will win.

"If it's Garcia, Amir will be too fast and hard-punching for him," Roach told the Daily Mail. "Whoever it is, we'll do this one more fight and then go up to welterweight to look for Floyd Mayweather. I see Floyd's legs beginning to go [at 35] and him slowing up a little. If we get him as early as December, Amir can beat him."

I think a lot of folks are underestimating Garcia, he has the tools to beat Amir, question is can he utilize those tools "effectively" against Amir. Unless Floyd loses a step from goin to the clink, Amir vs. Floyd at…

I would take Garcia in this match-up. But i'm willing to bet that Khan and GBP will stay clear of Garcia because he's too much of a threat and they're not going to make the same mistake they made with…
