Rua details training with Freddie Roach


Rua: I started training with Freddie Roach because my manager contacted him and his team. For me this is good because I learned some things that can make the difference against Rogerio Nogueira.

I was always confident in my boxing. In camp, I always train a lot of boxing. But Freddie showed me specific details that will help me improve my game.

I am going to go back to Brazil and keep practicing what I learned and hope to apply it to the fight.

He is a south paw and that already makes him harder to deal with. Nogueira is a guy that likes to setup his jab to throw his left hand. I know this and I am going to be prepared when we step inside the Octagon.

I like that short clip of Roach really emphasizing turning the shoulder over. Good stuff because Shogun has to be sharp to get past Rogerio these days.This is going to be a tough fight, a damn dog fight like the last one x10

His knees are basically destroyed. He will never as good cardio as he once had. Still I will be rooting for him, always a classy guy, never a mean word to say about anybody.

No doubt about it. He's had three knee surgeries. You just can't be the same after that.

Meh. Shogun's boxing has never been technically sound but as far as power goes he always had it. A bit of bullshit coming from Roach on this one.Since Shogun's kicking ability has been destroyed by the knee surgeries, getting a more technical boxing game from Freddy is gonna help him a lot though.
