Amir Khan’s trainer, Virgil Hunter, has claimed his fighter does not do enough between training camps to keep himself in shape.
The Bolton fighter is contemplating his future after losing his last fight back in April, when he was beaten in controversial circumstances by WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
Khan was pulled out after a low blow, but Crawford questioned his desire after claiming the 32-year-old quit. Hunter is happy for Khan to continue his career but the American admits he becomes easily distracted and his skills are being allowed to “deteriorate”.

He told BBC Sport: “I would like to see him commit to many training camps in between fights and to work on his weaknesses before he makes that final decision to really see if his skills are gone, or if he is just letting them lay in a pile and deteriorate slowly. “He never has practice in between fights.
He trains hard for 10 weeks but it’s not enough. “His timing is off. His distance is not where it should be. He doesn’t have a sense of range and distance and those things are not due to age. That’s from practice.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
