Khan: The Mistakes I've Been Making Are Disappearing

AMIR KHAN has revealed that he is finally winning the fight against his toughest opponent – himself.

The former four-time world champion will meet Mexican Julio Diaz, 33, at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on April 27.

And he believes domestic fans will see an improved fighter as Khan makes his first appearance on these shores for two years.

Khan, 26, will be having his second fight under new trainer Virgil Hunter and said: “At last, I am finally cutting out a lot of the mistakes I was making.”

He hopes to get right back in the world title mix after also winning his last fight with Carlos Molina in Los Angeles in December.

That followed defeats to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia, which prompted the Bolton fighter to part with trainer Freddie Roach.

Now he has Hunter in his corner and reckons the no-nonsense American is the man to guide him right back to the top.

Khan has lost three of his 30 professional bouts and wants to once again become a world champion at light-welterweight before moving up to the 147lbs welterweight division.

His catchweight contest with welterweight Diaz, who has lost seven of his 48 fights, will be at 143lbs.

Khan is confident that he can claim another win, saying: “The mistakes I have been making are disappearing. I am working on them all the time.

“I want to improve as a boxer. Virgil is the kind of trainer who is always shouting at you and making sure I don’t make mistakes and they don’t become a habit.

“Every day he tells me what is right or wrong and what to do in my sessions.

“I don’t mind being shouted at – sometimes that is a good way of being taught because you need to be told what you are doing wrong.”

Hunter said: “I am pleased with his mental progress and physically he is very gifted.

“When he learns what to do with those gifts, it is going to be difficult for anybody to beat him.”

[QUOTE=Hitman932]LMAO @ stupid Khan fans. Just like Amir themselves they credit the Peterson fight as a win. Like it or not - Peterson won the fight and battered Khan around the ring. Khan and his legion of nutsack washing morons can make any excuse they want. Hilarious to see people sa...

The Mistakes I've Been Making Are Disappearing except for my chinny chin chin. Maybe he has reinvented himself and knows how to avoid/take a punch. Perhaps in a similar fashion that Wladimir Klitschko did with Manny Steward. Might be more difficult for Khan. We will have to wait and see.
