We have to remember, Roach has had Khan since he was virtually a teenager. He was young enough to learn a new style and new skills, instead all roach really did was excaggerate the style he already used He hasn't taught Khan to clinch, to fight inside, to block an uppercut etc etc etc etc.
Roach has trained flaws into khans game, Hunter knows these flaws and will now try to train them out of him.
I know it's fashionable to Hate on Khan but the fact is he has the same flaws that pretty much all roach fighters have.
Maybe he can change, maybe it's too late, but roach certainly didn't focus on his defence and jab which should always have been the focus, instead he tried to make him Manny 2.0 when everyone else knew Khan didn't have the same punch resistance or power to do that, and should have used his height and reach advantage and speed to stay out of trouble and keep off the ropes
thats the whole truth and nothing but the truth!!!....well put
