To me, it seems almost akward for the trainer when he has to try and relate to his fighter going back n foward with a translator in the corner in under a minute before it's back to action. It just never seems to click, especially in the moments of a frustrated fighter and last night between Roger Mayweather and Joseph Adbeko was one of many examples I can give for my point. It's one thing to use a guy in training to help tweak or enhance your style, but it's another thing to be in a corner having to limit yourself with words and emotion because the fighter doesen't understand them. To me, it would seem to only add to a fighters frustrations given the moment.
I can understand this. 60 seconds is not enough time to break stuff down...as if instructions don't already have to be broken down anyway. It's worse when there's a language barrier, and the guy just had a bad round. We've seen it with fighters who understand their trainers...when they have a bad round (read: "he hit me good, now I wanna go back out there and FIGHT")...they go back out there and do the exact opposite...they fight back, rather than hold.
Now, as MG mentioned, the language of boxing is universal...I guess it all depends on the fighter too. Some fighters get hit and wanna fight back, while others get hit and go back to the corner (if they make it) with the "what am I supposed to do" look on their face.
