Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) will only get better as he enters a fight with WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs), according to the British star's trainer Virgil Hunter.
Khan made his welterweight debut in May 2014, winning a twelve round unanimous decision with three knockdowns over former WBA welterweight world champion Luis Collazo. He then came back in December to win a dominating twelve round decision over former two-division champion Devon Alexander.
"I know he can be better and get better for a fight with Floyd, based off of what he showed the other night, certainly that’s a good thing leading into a fight with a fighter of Floyd’s ability, talent and skill. It’s a good introduction and a good prerequisite going into a fight with Floyd and he can’t help but build off of that," Hunter tells On The Ropes Boxing Radio.
"As well as Amir performed in the Collazo fight, it was very obvious that in the Alexander fight that he had even grown past the Collazo fight. It would be safe to say that he’s got a lot in the closet that he can still take off the hanger and unveil, so to speak. His chances going into this fight would be very well represented and it manifests itself in a positive way."
