Amir Khan says he feels ‘much stronger’ after change in diet
March 14th, 2011 by Ben Vine
Amir Khan has broken the silence over his split with controversial conditional trainer, Alex Ariza.
Ariza, known for working with boxers such as Manny Pacquiao, helped Khan bulk up with a mix of supplements and power shakes. But now Khan is working with Michael Vale, who prefers a more organic approach.
“It was nothing big,” Khan told The Observer. “At the end of the day, we just grew apart. Also, he was with Manny at the same time, and I needed a full-time conditioner.”
Khan is currently in the Philippines training for the fourth defence of his WBA light-welterweight title against Irishman Paul McCloskey in Manchester on 16 April.
If successful, a possible unification fight against Tim Bradley could be scheduled. It has already been rumoured to have been decided to take place on July 23rd in Las Vegas
