McCloskey's Trainer: Big Mistake By Khan To Fight Paul

By Mark Vester

WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan has made the biggest mistake of his life by agreeing to fight Paul McCloskey on April 16 at the MEN Arena in Manchester, according to McCloskey's trainer John Breen. Khan and McCloskey reached a deal over the weekend.

Breen feels Khan and his team are underestimating McCloskey and his abilities as a boxer. The coach is very confident of McCloskey's chances to outbox Khan.

“It's great news for Paul that the deal is signed but it's bad for Khan. Paul has the style to beat him without a doubt — he's going to baffle Khan with his skill and his moves," Breen told the Belfast Telegraph.

“I get the impression that Khan's camp are taking Paul lightly and if they are underestimating Paul then that's just great. It's going to be a great fight. Paul and I will be sitting down this week to make our plans. We have 10 weeks to get ready which is perfect for us. It's the fight we have been calling for and now the chance is here so it has to be grabbed."

Breen is going to put together a very strong training camp. He wants his boxer to be ready for everything. The best possible sparring partners will be hired for the camp.

"For this fight no stone will be left unturned, money will have to be spent on good sparring and a training camp second to none to make sure that Paul is ready to go and win," Breen said.

I reckon Paul's chin will hold up just fine. The body shots might stop him though. WAR McCLOSKEY!!!!
