Amir Khan to announce new trainer in a week

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 1:17:41 by

Former IBF and WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan is all set to bounce back from his back to back defeats in the ring.

The Bolton man was a special guest at Monday’s grand opening of the newly renovated and improved Brunswick Boxing & Fitness Clun in New Brunswick, where he revealed he will make a comeback later this year.

While speaking on his inclusion, Khan insisted that he is especially upset with his most recent loss at the hands of WBC and now WBA light welterweight champion Danny Garcia.

The Brit was a favorite against the American but he suffered a brutal fourth round TKO on the fight night and his loss produced talks of him ending with his International Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, who was working with him since 2008.

“We’ll come back stronger. We are gonna change a lot of things in the camp. The coach maybe, also sparring partners, also training methods,” Khan told a writer as Rich Mazon caught up to him in Central Jersey on Monday evening.

“So we’re gonna change a lot of things. I know that I will be much better, much stronger and much explosive,” added the former Olympic silver medallist for Great Britain.

The 25-year-old, who is more commonly known as King Khan, didn’t reveal much during the interview but he confirmed that he will announce his new trainer in a week’s time.

“Not yet, I am gonna announce one next week. I am still working on it,” said Khan.

“I don’t want to mention the names but they are very good trainers and they are good in defense, not only offense but defense,” added Khan.

In the meantime, Khan said he has not really decided in which division he is going to fight.

“I am thinking of fighting, maybe 140 again or maybe 147. It depends of what the best is for me there,” expressed Khan.

Well, all said and done, Freddie Roach produced an eight fight winning streak with Khan so let’s see if the Brit can really find someone better than him.
