Rankled Coach Roach Betrays A Fighter's Confidence
Something that was left out of BS's crib of the Telegraph article:
"Listen, Klitschko’s a very good boxer" [said Roach.] "Once he gets into a rhythm, and gets that jab going, he’s very difficult to beat because he has good power and a size advantage. He’s also one of the best heavyweight athletes I’ve ever seen. I said to him one day - “You’re a great athlete”. But you know what he said to me? "I wish I could fight". The key to beating someone like that is to take their mental confidence away straight away. Haye can do that with his power, but not by boxing Wlad."
I was taken aback that Freddy would betray something that was told to him in his professional capacity like that. Not very cool, Freddy. Are you really that pissed at Wlad that he didn't keep you on?
Wlad has said many times that Vitali was born a fighter while he had to become one. But it wasn't cool of Roach to spill this to a UK paper.
