ROACH: Khan Didn’t Pass Mayweather Audition

Trainer Freddie Roach saw his ex charge Amir Khan do his thing on Saturday, against Chris Algieri.

And no, he doesn’t think Amir “passed the audition,” showed he deserves a fight with Floyd Mayweather.

“He will not get a Mayweather fight for that performance no,” Roach told Michael Woods on Tuesday, at BB King’s in NYC, for the Cotto-Geale presser.

“He makes fights boring, he holds too much,” Roach said, and he didn’t like his outing, though he does think Khan beat the Long Islander.This version of Khan fires, then holds, making the ref too instrumental in his fights, and it makes for something other than must see TV.

Roach was told that the SPIKE ratings were food for the Algieri bout, but he noted that PPV really measures popularity, but when it’s on “free” TV, who really knows…

Khan and Roach split on poor terms a couple years ago, with Khan referring to Freddies’ Parkinsons, and no, I don’t think byegones are byegones just yet for feisty Freddie…

NOPE! The Great Con didn't pass the test. And it serves him right. How was Freddie's Parkinson's hampering Khan's lack of progress? Dude's tude of believing that God/Allah Favors him is the problem. It is Mano-i-Mano in dat squared jungle. Holla!

He failed in every way possible. What does he.possess that Floyd hasn't already faced? Khan has nobody to blame but himself. He could not adjust in the ring which resulted to his poor performance. Unfortunately for him he might not even get a fight with Manny as he will only come back to the ring only for a rematch with Floyd.

If I was Floyd I would take the Khan fight in Wembley and retire with a 4th round knockout and a nice pay check.

He would get robbed there. I can see him elbowing Khan. And there, they would not put up with those shenanigans. Lil Floyd would be disqualified or Penalized to da maximum. And If Lil Floyd cuts Khan, they will go to the scorecard, and Khan would be mysteriously way ahead on points. Lil Floyd will be smart to stay in Sin City where he de facto runs the commission and change things at his will. Holla!

I believe that too. The Floyd Clinch and forearm chop is only legal in Vegas at the MGM. Klit gets away with it on his home base but in NYC they called him for the Excessive Clinch.
