To me it seems like a trainer has his work cut out for him when having a stable of fighters who are champions with a name for themselves, ala Garcia, Hunter, or Roach. Though it is saying a lot about the quality of training success they bring, it seems like the guys who give most of there time, if not, all of there time to a main pupil, has more advantages towards success with a fighter, than the guy who has 4-5 champions in there stable to focus on. I hear Andre Berto maybe on tap to work with Vrigil Hunter now and it got me thinking, is it in a fighters best interest to go with a guy whom already has a stable full of well known fighters?

As most of you all mentioned, a trainer could have multiple fighters, IF he's able to manage his time well.

I believe me and Professor were discussing Amir Khan's troubles with Roach last year, just days before the Garcia fight. I have to find that video of him sparring against a guy who fought nothing like Garcia, and he was going for broke and getting tagged in the process.

As Professor mentioned a while ago, places like the Wild Card gym are full of guys who are pressing to be stars, so sparring sessions end up turning into competitions so to speak, rather than one guy helping another guy prepare for an upcoming fight.

There's always something to prove in places like that, and if you're somewhat insecure about your skills and really need help (but too afraid to look "less than" in front of hungry, surrounding prospects), then you're sure to fall short somewhere.

So again, a trainer having more than one fighter to train, CAN be a good thing, but it can also backfire and the fighters end up paying for it. I dont know what's worse, a trainer not being able to give a green and hungry fighter (who needs all the help they can get) enough time, or not being able to give multiple stars/champions enough time because one of them is the golden goose while the others are left to play 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fiddle. Help me out here...
