Tuesday, August 7th, 2012 4:29:04 by

The American boxing trainer, Emanuel Steward, who is an inductee of the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame, has rejected claims from Amir Khan by saying that he has never spoken to anyone form the Brit’s camp.

The Bolton man, who is more commonly known as King Khan, lost his WBA title to Danny Garcia on July 14 at the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and since then he is pondering over his relationship with Freddie Roach, who has shaped up his career till now.

While speaking to SkySports, Khan claimed that he has been approached by Steward for training and he is thinking over it.

Khan was quoted saying as, “I’ve had so many trainers approach me in the past week. Steward is the main one who’s approached me. Many trainers have said they can make me into a big, unbeatable fighter. It’s all about taking my time on this; it’s a big decision to make. I’m still with Freddie at the moment, but in a week’s time things might change. It’s all about seeing who might suit my style, who might help me on my offense, who might help me on my defense.”

However, when Chris Robinson of BoxingScene.com contacted Steward to confirm the news, he got surprised as the trainer said he has never contacted anyone.

“I have no comment on that,” Steward would state. “I haven’t spoken to anybody from Amir Khan’s camp. I never called anyone; I’ve never spoke to anyone. I have no knowledge of anything.”

Steward is currently working with the likes of unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius ‘K9’ Bundrage and middleweight contender Andy Lee. Nevertheless, Steward has insisted that he is simply enjoying dome down time at the moment.

“That’s the truth,” Steward would claim. “I’m just taking a break right now.”

Well, all said and done, let’s see how Amir Khan responds to this situation.

  1. Amir Khan

    This is just Khans way of telling Freddie Roach that Roach needs to spend more time working with him. It’s Khan way of saying, “Look, there are others out there who can train me”. Typical Khan. Doesn’t think before he opens his mouth.
