Amir Khan overlooks Freddie Roach, Roger and Floyd Mayweather for Unknown
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (July 26, 2008)  
Some of the greatest trainers in the game are being overlooked in favor of Jorge Rubio Agramonte as the new trainer for British sensation Amir Khan. Khan personally picked Rubio Agramonte as his new trainer after working with several America trainers which included Buddy McGirt, Freddie Roach, Roger and Floyd Mayweather Sr.

Shah Kahn (Amir's father) is quoted in the saying: “This is Amir’s choice and nobody else’s. When we went to America he trained with both Mayweathers, McGirt, and he’s worked with Roach before, but it was Jorge who he was most impressed with."

Shah added: "He may not be the most famous name but that’s not what we wanted. We wanted someone who can improve Amir and, when he wins a world title, everyone will know who Jorge is then.”
