Amir Khan suffered the second knockout of his career last Saturday against Danny Garcia at the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and now the Bolton man, who is more commonly known as King Khan, is planning to review his relationship with his Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach.
Khan suffered his first ever knockout against Breidis Prescott back in 2008 and this time he was floored three times in his WBA and WBC light welterweight unification fight by an underdog.
While speaking on his inclusion, Khan stated he is still very determined to get his titles back but on the same note he insisted that he will have to review his relationship with Roach.
Roach, who is one of the most well-known boxing trainers in the world, also trains the eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao along with Khan and this seems to be the only problem.
The Brit, who now has a record of winning 26 of his 29 professional fights, with 18 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, told the media that he believes a lot of travelling was the main reason behind his defeat. He further added that he wants someone who could give him full time.
In quotes reported by the Daily Mirror, Khan said: “I want someone who is with me all the way through, like my conditioner Ruben Tabares is.
“It’s hard when you’re with Manny and have to be the number two.
“Every fight is a big fight for me, I’m fighting top-10 guys and so I need the best guys with me all the way through.
“Now is the best time to sort these things out and my team will talk things over with Freddie.
“There are a few things I have to change to benefit me.
“Maybe we have to see if I’m doing the right training and have the right sparring.”
Well, all said and done, let’s see how Freddie Roach responds to this situation.
