Amir Khan Looks Set To Part Ways With Freddie Roach

By James Ingham, courtesy of The Daily Star

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.”

Khan's chin isn't great but it's not as bad as people make it out to be. It's accentuated by the fact he'd rather not employ a hands-up defence and allows himself to get caught by easy counters. Khan needs a…

[QUOTE=Pony Boy;12473786]Khan's career is going down the hill at full speed. No trainer can make him better. His style is hit and run. Sorry to say but he can't go toe to toe cause he doesn't have a chin so…
