The final chapter of Amir Khan’s boxing career will feature a new trainer in his corner.
One bout away from his 40th the 34-year-old has been pictured sparring former foe and current WBO welterweight belt holder Terence Crawford. The three-weight world champion and Khan fought at Madison Square Garden in April 2019 with the Brit stopped in round six. Khan now appears to have enlisted the services of Crawford’s long-time trainer Brian ‘Bomac’ McIntyre.
Khan, a former world champion at 140lbs, who has been trained by Oliver Harrison, Freddie Roach and Virgil Hunter, has once again spoke of his desire to face long-time rival Kell Brook. The pair have been linked with a fight against one another for far too long and while the spectacle does not have the status or lure it once had their will undoubtedly be a market and reasonable sized attendance wishing to see the two veterans square off.
Khan now becomes part of a training team in Omaha which also features Jamel Herring and Maurice Hooker who are also trained by McIntyre.
