According to the Daily Mail, Virgil Hunter has been confirmed as
the new trainer of Bolton star Amir Khan.
Hunter, famous for his work with world super-middleweight king
Andre Ward, replaces Freddie Roach, who Khan split with following
his knockout defeat to Danny Garcia.
Khan has said that the reason for the split was nothing to do
with that set back, but because he was unhappy playing second
fiddle to Manny Pacquiao in Roach's training plans.
It has also been suggested that Khan will engage in a homecoming
fight at the MEN Arena in Manchester this December.
