Team Alexander "Khan is Disrespecting Another Trainer"

By Ryan Burton

Devon Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham recently spoke to about Amir Khan's decision to bring in Rick Coward to work the mitts in Khan's training camp for his December 7th fight against Alexander.

Khan recently posted the decision on his Twitter account.  He said that he is bringing in Coward who is known as "Coach Rick the Mittologist" and according to his Twitter account is a reality tv star.

"Khan continues to disrespect great trainers. He blamed (Freddie) Roach for his loses and now he brings in a Roger Mayweather copy cat trainer to do mitts. So I guess he's saying Virgil Hunter's mitt work isn't good enough," Cunningham told

[QUOTE=springfiels;13786945]Khan is an entertaining fighter and has been in some great fights... I'm a fan but what annoys me about him is there is always some excuse. Making the weight is killing him - when he loses at WW he'll…
