Amir Khan: Freddie Roach FIRED, New Trainer & Opponent Named – BREAKING BOXING NEWS

By Geno McGahee

Amir Khan is rebounding from his defeat at the hands of Danny Garcia and has started the process by ditching former trainer, Freddie Roach, and hiring Virgil Hunter to guide his career inside of the ring.

There was plenty of controversy surrounding Freddie Roach’s treatment of Khan. Many claim that he was treated as the number three guy in the stable and would have to work around Manny Pacquiao and Julio Cesar Chavez, JR., two men that make Roach a lot more money than Khan did. This seems like the most likely reason why Khan was quick to fire Roach and move on. He has zero confidence in his corner going into the Garcia fight and paid a dear price for it.

In his comeback fight, Khan will be taking on Carlos Molina, 17-1, 7 KO’s. Khan has been on the verge of superstardom multiple times but has not been able to find his way there. Under the guidance of Hunter, it should be interesting to see where he goes from here.
