AMIR KHAN is set to sensationally AXE his top American trainer Freddie Roach.
Two-time world champion Khan, 25, suffered his second successive defeat when he lost his light-welterweight crowns to Danny Garcia, 24.
Roach’s top priority is Manny Pacquiao, with the Filipino star due to fight on December 8.
Khan’s next outing is on December 15 and he will not put up with another joint-training camp with Pacquiao – which is what happened when he fought Garcia.
In an exclusive interview with the Daily Star Sunday, Khan said: “I’m 25 and not even at my peak yet. I want to make a few changes and [I] am in talks to change trainers at the moment. I am looking at a few names but I don’t know if they are available.”
Bolton-based Khan’s hopes of a rematch with Garcia ended when the he opted to face Erik Morales, 35, instead. The rematch takes place on October 20th in Brooklyn.
He said: “Garcia doesn’t want to fight me so I will just have to find someone else.”
