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.
Yep, that's something Ward does as well. He was using that effectively against Froch if I recall.
