Fuck Freddie Roach.
These motherfuckers with quick hands need to learn some fucking defense. I was shocked and aghast by how Khan was getting caught clean in freaking sparring, and now he gets KO'd the fuck out against a guy he should have beaten...I mean, that's just criminal.
He needs a new trainer, one who will teach him how to defend and fight close, clinch up and protect that chinny chin chin.
This is the bullshit. Fucking fire Roach and get a real trainer, or be done with your career.
I agree Max, Roach isn't helping Khan's ring skills, only his fame. Notice that Roach had nothing to say when Khan was getting ripped, nothing, sad stuff. That sparring session COUPLED with his dialogue during the build up, read, "I'm not getting the attention that I need in the gym. I need to prove this unnecessary point to myself that I belong in the ring".
His career is far from over, but he has some heavy lifting to do.

Maaaaaan, if these cats wanna hold on to those belts, so that they may makes some money, they need to keep "Cool Hand Luke" outta there plans.
Exactly! Matthysse has that power that puts you on your ass and make you see your ancestors from generations back. Either they feel that way, or they're taken back to the sandbox days. He took the life out of Soto with some of those shots. The crazy thing is, it looks like Maidana is gonna stay at WW, so Matthysse will officially become "The Test" of the 140 lb division.

Having said that, I read Shelly's prognostication and I'll be damned if this dude didn't call it. MF I need some lotto numbers....quit BS'n and let's run 'em!!!
Man I just looked back at Garcia's recent fights Figueroa (took the life out of him with those hooks), Holt (matched power shots with him), and Morales took some big left hooks from Danny and actually made it through the fight. With that said, Khan just doesn't have the resolve of those guys, so I always knew he couldn't withstand those counter shots. As for those lotto numbers, Im still using fortune cookie numbers...maybe I need to give it a shot.

but didnt khan come in at fight night at 158? Or was that me mishearing it
It was 148 lbs, like you said, he was pretty ripped at the weigh-in. Im curious to know if that had some effect on him. Thoughts?

I think Garcia should stay away from a rematch however and look for a super fight later this year.
Trust me, Khan wont look his way, so he doesn't have to be forced into a rematch.
