Has Khan now been vindicated in his decision to leave Roach?
He looked slightly improved in his last fight, but still has a long way to go in order to perfect his style. Still throws too many combinations and puts himself in unnecessary danger - against most people that'll be fine but there's always a chance that a heavy hitter could land a bomb on him like Garcia did and end up changing the whole fight.
We saw Pacquiao get knocked out by Marquez only a week before the Khan fight, and now rumors are circulating that Chavez Jr is leaving Roach, possibly after realizing things that Khan had the foresight to spot earlier.
I had no issue with Khan changing trainers, it's something I thought should happen even before there was any official talk about it. With all that's been happening to Roach's fighters in recent times, to me it seems like it's been proven now that Khan was right in his choice to leave, especially in light of the incremental improvements he seems to making.
