According to Boxing Scene, British boxer Amir Khan has chosen Virgil Hunter as his trainer to replace Freddie Roach.  Khan was not pleased at the attention, or lack thereof, that trainer Freddie Roach was giving him.  In his opinion, Freddie Roach was more focused on training Manny Pacquiao.  Khan even went the distance and declared a hilarious ultimatum in which he forced Freddie Roach to either choose him or Pacquiao.

Under Virgil Hunter, Amir Khan will have to share attention with super middleweight champion Andre Ward.   This will not be Khan’s first change of hearts and/or trainers.  Virgil Hunter will be Khan’s fifth trainer since his professional debut in 2004.

Perhaps Amir Khan should realize that he should sticking to one trainer should be key.  Hopping around does not better his skills in terms of focusing on one distinctive style from a trainer.  No wonder he has been losing as of late.
