Photo: Amir Khan Arrives in Northern California for Camp

By Ryan Maquiñana

Former junior welterweight titleholder Amir Khan has arrived in Hayward, Calif., to commence training camp with new cornerman Virgil Hunter.  Khan faces Carlos Molina on Dec. 15 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

Khan will have no shortage of sparring partners in Northern California, as Hunter also trains fellow 140-pounders Karim Mayfield and Mike Dallas Jr., as well as lightweight Stan Martyniouk, who posed for the picture below with the British star.

"I can't wait to work with Amir," Martyniouk said ahead of his fight this Saturday against Johnny Frazier.  "We're all going to give each other some good work."

Khan is expected to attend the bout, which will take place at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, Calif.

I've been very critical of Kahn lately but i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt with his new found training. Hopefully he can keep his mouth SHUT instead of running it and pointing fingers of blame everywhere…

"Training with Virgil is tough and now I know why @andreward is unbeatable. I'm working on new methods of training I never knew existed. " Off Khan's Twitter.

[QUOTE=shoog;12610537]Khan should fight victor ortiz asap. Ortiz with his shattered jaw vs Amir Khan with the chandelier jaw, it would be a matchup for the ages.[/QUOTE] Lmao! Who's chin will go out first?? Maybe Ortiz drops him and Khan can't…
