Emanuel Steward: I Never Reached Out To Amir Khan!

By Chris Robinson

Following his disastrous loss to Danny Garcia last month at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, there are still a lot of lingering questions that Amir Khan has to eventually answer.

Khan was stopped inside of four rounds by Garcia after being leveled by a wicked left hook from the Philadelphia fighter in the third round and saw the contest waved off a frame later after suffering two more knockdowns.

In the wake of the defeat, it still remains to be seen whether or not Khan will remain with his trainer Freddie Roach. Khan has seemed to go back and forth on the issue a bit and recently revealed that several trainers have reached out to him, perhaps the most noteworthy being Emanuel Steward.

Speaking to SkySports, Khan would issue the following.

“I've had so many trainers approach me in the past week. Steward is the main one who's approached me. Many trainers have said they can make me into a big, unbeatable fighter. It's all about taking my time on this; it's a big decision to make. I'm still with Freddie at the moment, but in a week's time things might change. It's all about seeing who might suit my style, who might help me on my offense, who might help me on my defense.”

Curious for Steward’s take on the matter, I touched bases with the Kronk trainer over the weekend.

“I have no comment on that,” Steward would state. “I haven’t spoken to anybody from Amir Khan’s camp. I never called anyone; I’ve never spoke to anyone. I have no knowledge of anything."

Steward presently works with the likes of unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius ‘K9’ Bundrage, and middleweight contender Andy Lee. Balancing his duties as a trainer with his role as an analyst for HBO and just having seen his core group of fighters have bouts in the past few months, Steward insists he is simply enjoying some down time at the moment.

“That’s the truth,” Steward would claim. “I’m just taking a break right now.”

Kahn is good but no trainer will make him better then he is. Trainers are over rated. Roach only has pacquiao thats why he has been trainer of the year multiple times. All the other top guys he has have…
