Default Re: First Amir Khan Workout Video With Virgil Hunter

That was interesting.

He seemed a bit stiff during the shadowboxing at the start, but the rest of the routines looked pretty good. I don't know much about Hunter, but I liked what he was doing with Khan. He was constantly making him parry shots during the padwork, so Khan is used to defending himself while throwing, which will be particularly important when it comes to dealing with left hooks. I also liked the way they were working on Khan countering the jab with his own double jab (at least, that's what it looked like). Even more surprising was seeing Khan work on fighting while moving backwards, turning his opponent and dealing with pressure. He seems to be extending his left a lot now too, and I'm curious to see how that will work for him in a match.
