Bradley Feels Amir Khan Can Rebuild With Virgil Hunter

By Ryan Burton

During a recent episode of BoxingScene.com's official audio show The Boxing Lab, WBO welterweight champion was asked what he thought about former two time junior welterweight champion Amir Khan's switch in trainers from Freddie Roach to Virgil Hunter.

"I think he's a good fighter. He's really aggressive. I think the trainer change was good for him. Virgil Hunter has Andre Ward who I feel is best in the world, pound for pound. I think he retires undefeated. I don't think anybody beats him," Bradley stated.

Khan and Bradley have exchanged words in the media on numerous occasions as a fight between the two failed to materialize.  Instead of facing Khan, Bradley opted to sit out his promotional contract in order to sign with Top Rank and face Manny Pacquiao in a far more lucrative bout. 

Despite their differences, Bradley is confident that Hunter can rebuild Khan who has lost his past two fights. He thinks that Hunter will be able to lessen the amount of exchanges that Khan engages in as the Brit's chin has proven to be his downfall in two of his three losses. 

"I think Khan will still go back to mixing it up once and while and Virgil will slap him around a little bit and tell him that's not how we do it (laughing). He may not get the knockout but he will come out clean," Bradley opined.

If Khan's chin can hold up and they match him with the right guys, he can get back to where he was. But I don't think he will ever be an A level fighter.He just doesn't have the chin to…

Ward is an amazing fighter, I have been telling people about him for years. When he is on his game, he will never be beaten. He can adjust to any style, he can fight on the outside, inside, box beautifully,…
