Freddie Roach declined to corner GSP at UFC 124

by Tom Ngo | source:

“Yes, they want me to go to Montreal and they want me to work the corner in some fights and so forth,” Freddie Roach told “I respect all sports. If I can make someone a better fighter, I don’t care if it’s MMA, UFC, Manny Pacquiao, it doesn’t matter to me.

“That’s what I live for.”

The famed boxing coach would love nothing more than to whisper sweet nothings in St-Pierre’s ear in between rounds this Saturday, but Roach’s dance card was filled up a long time ago.

“He wants me to go to his fight and work his corner over in Montreal,” Roach stated. “Unfortunately, I have Amir Khan and those guys fighting on the same day [in Las Vegas], so I can’t make it. I wish him the best. He’s a great student.”

I agree with the poor title. Does UGNews know who Amir Khan is? There's no way that Roach would choose GSP over his protege, a rising star, someone who trains full-time with him and from his own sport too. How shocking!About Freddie Roach predicting a left hook KO, it didn't happen but GSP's left hook looked pretty damn good that night.

Holy misleading title! Geez, Roach has prior commitments. Not like he had nothing going on and just said no like the thread title has one believe.
