As we recently reported, UK superstar Amir Khan (17-0) has broken ties with his longtime trainer Oliver Harrison and is expected to hire an American based trainer. Khan is regarded as one of the most talented young fighters in the sport.

Daily Mail reports that Buddy McGirt is the frontrunner to get the job, with Roger Mayweather being a close second. Khan recently spent time in the Mayweather camp, training with Floyd Jr. during a brief stay in Las Vegas to support countryman Joe Calzaghe in his bid to conquer Bernard Hopkins.
