Schaefer: Khan Needs Trainer Who Devotes 100% To Him

By Robert Morales

It was reported on BoxingScene.com this week that Amir Khan, who was rather stunningly stopped in the fourth round by Danny Garcia last Saturday night, is unhappy with playing second fiddle - so to speak - to Manny Pacquiao when it comes to their trainer, Freddie Roach.

The British superstar is planning to discuss the situation with his team, and then he plans to sit down with Roach. Khan is tired of taking part in joint-training camps with other fighters. He wants to have Roach's full attention during camp.

Since Khan is promoted by Golden Boy, Schaefer's thoughts on the matter are meaningful.

"Amir Khan has to feel 100 percent comfortable in the team he has around him training him for a fight because that's really a crucial element of winning fights, going in with the proper confidence and proper preparation," Schaefer said. "If he feels that that is not the case, then it's going to be up to him to make whatever adjustments he wants to do in the corner."

"This is his time. He needs to have somebody who can devote 100 percent of his time to him."

khan can have a hundred trainers but the fight is still up to him. You can't train to win- because the victory only presents itself in the ring, and how someone reacts to it is all based on heart.

[QUOTE=sdcluser;12355143]Steward and Diaz (Miguel Cotto's trainer) would be better. Steward can probably provide better structure. Beristein is too focus on JMM for good reason.[/QUOTE] If his beef with Roach is that he isn't giving him enough of his time, Steward…
