Amir Khan Worked Hard on Leg, Lower Body Strength

By Connor Davies, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR Khan has spoken about his training techniques and how he thinks he can win the fight against Zab Judah.

Khan who is no stranger to big fights and winning titles says that: “training so early in the morning is such a shock to my system, but that’s what I have to do to be a champion.”
 
Given the magnitude of this fight, Khan has been training hard for weeks now and he’s adopted a vigorous training program building up his lower body and legs.

He added: “Strengthening my legs will make it so that if I take a hard shot, my legs will support me and I won’t go down.”

Khan has also proved he is confident of a victory in Las Vegas as he said on the radio show: “If you bet on me, you’ve got the safer bet I’m sure I will win this fight.”
 
Amir Khan is no stranger to backing up his words in big fights however, Zab Judah is a new challenge for Khan who is now in the super-lightweight class.

He said: “When I win this fight, I’ll move up to the next weight class, ‘cause then I’ll have people to challenge.”
