Roach: Khan Was Terrible, He'll Never Get Mayweather

By Carlos Boogs

Trainer Freddie Roach has serious doubts about Amir Khan (31-3, 19KOs) actually landing the September 12th date against WBO/WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26KOs).

Khan is said to be the frontrunner to get the match, but he struggled on May 29th when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over Chris Algieri - which many saw as an easy opponent after Roach's fighter Manny Pacquiao easily swept through Algieri last year and scored six knockdowns.

Roach, who trained Khan for several years before the British star left him for Virgil Hunter in 2012, feels Amir's performance was not good enough to get Mayweather.

"He'll never get Mayweather off that performance," Roach said . "He was terrible. It was boring."

[QUOTE=alexguiness;15770623]There is truth here ^^^ Roach has a point being salty over Khan. Khan basically blamed Roach for getting KTFO by Danny Swift. And even then gave Roach an ultimatum between himself and Manny... As if anyone would choose Khan…

Roach should be more embarrassed by Pac's performance against Mayweather
