If he could get Khan to adopt the same disaplined defensive mode as Burns Khan could do well.

Could be a good fit.
you mean the guard up and walk back in straight lines?

khan already does something similar.

Burns actually has a tight guard though, and can counter without nearly having his head taken off.

Nelson would be a good fit, but again, Khan would be playing second fiddle to Burns.

Glasgow is too cold for precious little Amir, he won't be coming back to Britain, and honestly I couldn't give a **** where he goes, he will never be humble enough to learn from his mistakes.

If it does end up being either of those, Khan needs to realise that he will not be either guy's main fighter. Cotto is Diaz' main fighter, & Ward is Hunter's. So I hope he realises both fighters will come before him.

I think khan didn't like roach's method

Roach doesn't babysit or watch his fighters every moves, he does the pads and works on sparring and leaves the fighters alone to work the bags, rope etc

I remember izzy Vasquez leaving him saying he needed someone who can be correcting his every move.

Maybe khan wants full attention to himself when he's training.

Humble enough to learn from his mistakes?

Yeah, because learning from your mistakes really comes down to being humble, doesn't it.
