FREDDIE ROACH has claimed Amir Khan will have no problems beating Marcos Maidana on his Las Vegas debut on Saturday.

Khan's coach predicts he will win every round as the headline act at Mandalay Bay before stopping the big-hitting Argentinian.

Ahead of his third WBA light-welterweight defence American Roach said: "Amir doesn't just go in there now and look for a one-punch knockout.

"He knows how to break a person down, work behind his jab and then finish them off. He's become a completely different fighter since he began working with me.

"We've not lost one round since we've been together. Amir is a 100 per cent better fighter.

"I have never had a fighter who listens, learns and takes advice so well as Amir Khan."
