So i had to register and post for this because i just saw that amir khan brought in coach rick for his mitt work, he basically emulates roger mayweather style of mittwork, i just think its awesome because he is from the same state as me and i had a few mitt work sessions with him and now he's working with a real pro and next to virgil hunter, if you guys dont know who he is just youtube coach rick, i just really thought it was pretty awesome!!!

Cunningham is flipping his mind over this...Team Alexander virtually has gone apeshit over this.

coach rick is a fuckin nobody. the mitt work is only relevant if you understand why your teaching it to somebody and first off, if the man your teaching is a dfensive minded boxer who reacts to his opponent. amir khan is a fuckin douchebag wannabe with no boxing iq and he is now cashing out his name. that mitt work aint gonna do shit but get him KOd. you gotta start that mittwork at a young age to develope your reflexes and shit, its too late for khan hes done. and hes an idiot.

Maybe khan is having the same problem with virgil as he was having with roach, not enough attention. We all know he is a diva. I honestly don't know what to think of this, wonder what virgil has to say.
mgrover
seems like all is well and Cunningham is trying to stir shit

Never heard of him, he can emulate Roger's mittwork but I bet money he don't know the purpose behind it and the advantages to doing it that way. This guy is an unknown, Virgil was his usual respectful self in his response to it. If he's cool with it then so be it, but I find it odd
truth
It's the under lay for the over play khan loses against Alexander virgil shows his coolness but when loses he will say it was the mitt guy lol

Have you ever done drills during mitt work?

If you don't know what that is its cool. But I disagree with your post

That type of mitt work is designed like when you do mitt drills. But adds a LITTLE defense plus more eye hand coordination.

Doing drills burns you out way faster, I commend anyone who can keep that pace up for and entire round, much less multiple

Maybe Coach Rick will bring Khan a chin in his gym bag laugh.gif .

This is pretty irrelevant if you ask me. It just reeks of desperation from Khan. Hopefully this guy will teach Khan how to throw combinations and get his guard back up. Tired of seeing this kid, who has so much talent, throw crisp combinations and then stand in the line of fire admiring his work. Really, Khan needs to work on his footwork. He always is caught going straight back. A staple of any Freddy Roach fighter lol

Sheeeit they get caught coming forward too..(no example required)

Khan is a victim of himself. The only reason a fight with Floyed would happen is because Floyed promised he'd fight in the U.K for his fans. Still not sure if I believe that.

If he were to take the fight with Devon and win, then he could start barking up that tree.

Well now that there is news of Khan not signing the alexander fight and waiting for a possible floyd fight...... well floyd beats khan on floyds worst day but I would be sooo excited to see all access with coach rick!!! I would feel sort of connected, i know rick pretty well, we used to train together here and there and he was working out of my local boxing gym for a little while until him and the owner had a falling out... but if this all does happen rick better be ready for the money team to talk maaaad ish on him!!! Either way if this does happen it will be great for rick as im sure at that point he kinda "made it" as a mitt guy... i mean he started these youtube videos with him and his girl in a dingy basement and then if he makes it all the way to a mayweather all access well thats damn impressive!!! But im sure roger and floyd will have a field day with them doing rogers mitt routine!!! lol
