Freddie Roach: GSP absorbed everything I taught him

source: fighthub
 

He’s like a sponge, he really took in what I taught him and really practiced. He would come back the next day and know the move, I’d say "You went home and practiced that move all night long and he would just smile at me."

Very, very good student, great guy; really didn’t know much about boxing per se but ability-wise, he absorbed everything I taught him. He asked me about making an appearance on his show, he’s a coach I said "I won’t show them what I showed you."

It's kind of an honor to me to help guys like that out.

He sounds better actually. From what I've read his meds for the most part have slowed down the disease progression greatly. I hope they can find a cure , one of my close friends was diagnosed last year and he is only 35.

be cool to see Freddy on the show, great trainer. Imagine being on the Kos team when GSP, Jackson, Roach et al are training the other team.

I don't want to watch a fighter who is being coached not to go for the finish until the last 30 seconds of every round. Yeah, it may be smart, but it's boring when a fighter purposely stays in his opponents guard just trying to wear him down. If wrestling was a spectator sport then there would be a demand for a pro league of real wrestlers who didn't have to grease up and wear boas and shit. GSP will apparently never be able to get Serra out of his head, and it is unfortunate.

I think GSP's top game is very underrated..not overly aggressive like Fedor..but very calculated and is incremental with his transitions. Also does plenty of damage from guard and especially side mount.
