Amir Khan Rejects Guzman Rumors, Talks New Trainer

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Amir Khan is planning to return on December 15th, but it won't be against Joan Guzman. As BoxingScene.com reported last week, Guzman is not interested in waiting around for Khan and the Dominican boxer is angling for a title shot at junior welterweight.

Khan himself says there is no truth to the rumors and he doesn't have any interest in the fight.

“I want someone who is a bit more credible than him. I’ve come from world title fights and he might be a little below that. We’re just getting the dates right. It will either be in England or America, December 15 is the date,” Khan told the Manchester Evening News.

After suffering back to back defeats to Lamont Peterson in December and Danny Garcia in June, Khan says he is looking for a trainer to help him establish a better defense in the ring. Not only is Khan looking for a new coach, he also wants a veteran mentor.

“I’ll be going to New York to speak to a few coaches and maybe bring in a mentor who can help me in defense. I’m mainly looking at ex-fighters, Bernard Hopkins, Oscar (De La Hoya) and maybe Shane Mosley, they all want to help out and show their support," Khan said.

“If we had the defence we should have had we would be the best fighter in the world. That’s the downfall of me and Manny Pacquiao – we’re both offensively the best fighters in the world, but defensively we’re not the best."

Khan probably will take a few easy fights and be given a vacant title. If he doesn't get caught with a punch along the way.

Guzman is an elite fighter on his day but his day was a long time ago. He's done nothing really of note at 140 to say this is a legit fight. Khan should just get a new trainer and rematch…
