Saul Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan came face to face with respective trainers during the HBO program ‘Face Off’ with Max Kellerman ahead of their Cinco de Mayo showdown.
Here’s some interesting lines from Amir Khan’s trainer Virgil Hunter:
“If you’re a pure counter-puncher, it indicates to me that you have great timing, and timing can beat speed.”
“He’s [Amir] gonna adjust his speed., but I’m not in agreement with his speed. I’m more in tone with his quickness as oppose to speed.”
“Speed in the body; quickness in the mind. So I’m more interested on his process and ability to perform quickly, as oppose to fast. So, that’s our goal in the fight.”
