Legendary boxing guru Freddie Roach — who has trained a long list of superstars including Oscar De La Hoya, Mike Tyson, Bernard Hopkins, and James Toney, Manny Pacquiao — will enter the world of mixed martial arts on July 19th, when he’ll be working the corner of Andrei Arlovski at Affliction: Banned. According to Fighthype, Arlovski has been developing his hands at Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, in preparation for his bout against Miletich-trained bruiser Ben Rothwell.

yea, thats gonna help his game tremendously, his speed + great boxing, kicks etc....he could become one of the best strikers in mma, only question mark left is his chin + his confidence (has shown lack of confidence last few fights, unwillingness to trade etc...)
