Amir Khan
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. As you know by now, Amir Khan recently fired Freddie Roach as his trainer in favor of Virgil Hunter.  The main reason was to have a trainer that was 100% focused on him.  As great as a trainer that Roach is, Khan believes Roach is stretch thin between fighters such as himself, Manny Pacquiao, Victor Ortiz and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. just to name a few.  With Hunter, Khan expects he will have his new trainer's full attention.  Another reason Khan admits to dropping the services of Roach is due in part to his illness.  Roach suffers from Parkinson's disease, and Khan believes his symptoms are only getting worse.

Quoted recently by the AP, regarding his thoughts on Roach's illness, Khan stated: "Freddie's illness, it's very hard to see him as he's getting older. I believe that he's getting worse, and I wish him all the best."

Khan went on to add: "Freddie is still, with the Parkinson's disease, doing a great job working the mitts and working with fighters day in, day out. I just believe that I need someone who is going to work me that bit harder and get the best out of me."

Khan's first fight under the tutalage of Hunter comes on Dec. 15th against unbeaten Carlos Molina.
