Former WBC junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has asked WBC/WBA super middleweight champion  Andre Ward’s trainer to replace Hall-of-Famer Freddie Roach.

Khan has asked Virgil Hunter to train him from now on as he tries to regain his bearings after an embarrassing 4th round TKO loss in a WBC/WBA title fight against Danny Garcia last July 14.

A few days ago, Roach handed some advise to Khan's team - “I like Amir but they should keep him away from punchers.”

Hunter will be the 2004 British Olympic silver medalists  fifth trainer since he turned pro in 2004.

Boxing critics have often ridiculed Khan over his seeming inability to take a punch ever since he was knocked out in 54 seconds of the first round against Breidis Prescott on September 6, 2008.

At the end of the day, a trainer can only do so much. It's always down to the fighter in the end. I hope though for Khan's sake that he starts to fight to the best of his abilities rather than trying to be entertaining and get into toe to toe battles. The majority of Boxing fans don't apprecia...
