Khan hints at Roach split "in a weeks time"
Amir Khan dropped the biggest hint yet in a television interview saying that Manny Steward was on his radar and that in just a week's time, he will likely be with someone else.
The interview would be considered as lacking respect for his current trainer Roach and people may say Khan should really be discussing the scenario privately with his team. The comments are either a thinly veiled swipe at his trainer - or a genuine plan in motion.
"I've had so many trainers approach me in the past week but Steward is the main one who's approached me," bragged Khan.
"Many trainers have said they can make me into a big, unbeatable fighter. It's all about taking my time on this, it's a big decision to make. I'm still with Freddie at the moment, but in a week's time things might change."
Amir, who was knocked out by Danny Garcia last month still regards himself as an unbeatable force:-
"I think I'm one of the best offensive fighters in the world." he said.
"I just need to work on my defence. I really think to be one of the leading fighters, you need to have both. There are going to be a lot of things I'm going to change, but you will see a new Amir Khan.
"I wanted the rematch with Danny Garcia, but he didn't want to fight me, he's now fighting Erik Morales," he said.
"Hopefully I can fight the winner of that - I want to stay busy, get a fight in December, then a rematch against Garcia."
