By SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. Former WBA and IBF light welterweight champ Amir Khan believes
teaming up with new trainer Virgil Hunter will improve his defence. The
British boxer has suffered back to back defeats to Lamont Peterson and
Danny Garcia but Khan, who parted company with Freddie Roach last month,
insists he will have a tighter defence when he faces Carlos Molina on
Speaking to Sky Sport HD Khan said: "That’s what is going to happen.
I’m going to work on a new defence, new tactics for the next fight and
hopefully not make any mistakes.
"Because at times I get too brave for my own good. I was winning the
fight against Danny Garcia quite easily and then I started getting into a

Khan added; "I’ve got a great offence, but I’ve never had a trainer

Regarding his training partnership with the respected Roach Khan told
Sky Sports: "The focus wasn’t there as much and we kept on doing the
same things in the gym, and that is probably why a lot of fighters that I

Ricky Hatton and Khan confirmed there is a possibility the two could
share the ring sooner rather than later.
"Definitely it’s a realistic fight, a fight the public want to see, a fight probably Ricky wants also," Khan said.
"We are good friends, we have been good friends for such a long time.
We are in the same weight division, so you never know it could happen
in the future."
