Amir
Khan has offered boxing coach Joe Gallagher use of his Lancashire gym
to train his stable of champions, after Gallagher was asked to leave his
old gym at Kerry Kayes’ Denton based Betta Bodies.

Khan has personally opened his Bolton
gym to John Murray, Anthony Crolla, Matthew Macklin and the Smith
brothers among others trained by Gallagher and was willing to help after
reading an article in the Manchester Evening News.

Gallagher revealed in his MEN column
last week that he would be leaving Kerry Kayes’ Betta Bodies gym after
three years there, the same head quarters where Billy Graham had the
Phoenix Camp and where he trained Ricky Hatton.

But with Gallagher yet to find a permanent new base, Khan has stepped in to help.

Gallagher told the James Robson of the
Manchester Evening News: “Amir read the column and told his dad to let
me know we could use his Gloves Community Centre.

“I’ve known Amir ever since he was kid
and it shows that even after all the success he’s had as a world
champion, he still cares about other fighters.

“He knows a lot of the lads from when they were amateurs and it is a really generous offer.

“We are looking for our own permanent premises and had been offered space by a few amateur clubs.

“We are really grateful for that, but
Amir’s gym is a top-class facility and with a busy six or seven weeks
coming up, it is a really big help.” read more
