Former IBF and WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan is the talk of the town at this point in time since he has decided to leave his International Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, who was working with him for the past four years.
Khan is currently on a look out and to help him out former three-division world champion Shane Mosley has come out.
Mosley has suggested Khan to consider his former trainer, Brother Naazim Richardson, as an option since the American believes Richardson knows the best way to handle a fighter of Khan’s style.
“The way Amir fights, he throws a lot of punches and Brother Naaz knows how to work with that. He would be good with Brother Naaz. That style would fit,” Mosley told Fighthype. “I think that would be a good move for him because Brother Naaz is going to spend a lot of time with him and make sure that he trains hard. And they’re both Muslims, so it’ll work. It’ll be a good fit.”
The 25-year-old Bolton man, who is more commonly known as King Khan, lost his battle against Lamont Peterson last year and he suffered a brutal fourth round TKO against Danny Garcia last July. His career is now on the brink of failure and he knows he cannot lose third time in a row fight.
Khan feels he has problems with his defence and he now wants someone who could improve his defensive style.
While the Brit, who carries a record of winning 26 of 29 professional fights, with 18 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, is still looking for a trainer, former light heavyweight champion and present-day trainer Eddie Mustafa Muhammad has shown interest in Khan.
While speaking on his inclusion, Mustafa insisted that it would be a dream come true for him, if he gets to train Khan.
Mustafa said, “I have a lot of respect for Freddie Roach and Emanuel Stewart but nobody wants to train Amir Khan more than I do. Working with Amir Khan would be a dream.”
Well, all said and done, let’s see if Amir Khan responds to Shane Mosley or Eddie Mustafa.
