Amir Khan on Hunter: He Doesn't Lie To Me, I Need Him

After going through several trainers, including Hall of Fame coach Freddie Roach, WBC silver welterweight beltholder Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) believes he finally found the right training connection with veteran coach Virgil Hunter.

Last month at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Khan looked impressive under Hunter when he dropped former champion Luis Collazo three times to win a twelve round unanimous decision on the Mayweather-Maidana undercard.

Khan wants to return in October or November, with fighters like Floyd Mayweather Jr., Manny Pacquiao and Shawn Porter in his sights.

“It is a new chapter in my life having the baby and then moving up to 147 in the boxing – a new weight category for me, with new challenges out there for me,” Khan said to Sky Sports Ringside. "I am spending more time in the gym now. I am learning every time I am there and I am spending more time with Virgil. I am getting to know him on a personal level and building that relationship up.

“I am getting more sparring in and more pad work in with him. He is telling me what to do and what not to do, and watching a lot of videos with him, which helps. I see the mistakes I make that way.

“With Virgil he makes sure that you register what he is saying and he wants you to talk back to him. So I know what to do in there. What I like about him most of all is that he is very calm in the gym but very smart in the way that if he starts to shout then you know you’ve done something wrong. He tells me how it is and doesn’t lie to me. I needed someone like him.”
