After parting company with Freddie Roach recently, Amir Khan is reportedly looking to employ the services of another American coach in Virgil Hunter, the mentor and trainer of super-middleweight No1 Andre Ward.
Khan lost his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in that controversial defeat to Lamont Peterson last December.
After that shock stoppage defeat by Garcia, Khan feels he needs a change of direction, feeling Roach couldn’t commit to the more personal one on ones and the time that he needed. Roach trains Manny Pacquaio, Julio Cesar Chavez Junior and a host of other fighters and Khan felt it was time for a change.
