Andre Ward believes Amir Khan can shock the world come Saturday night and dethrone the much fancied, defending Champion Canelo Alvarez.
“He’s got a great shot to win this fight, he’s going to have to make the fight of his life but it’s doable,” revealed the unbeaten, pound for pound star.
Much has been made in the build up to the fight the dangers that Amir Khan faces with the timing and power from the Mexican, but stablemate Ward believes Khan has enough in his armoury to cause some problems of his own.
“We know Canelo is a great Champion and it’s not going to be easy but he can get beat and clipped just like Amir can.”
Both Khan and Ward are trained under the guidance of Virgil Hunter, who is tasked with masterminding Khan’s game plan to become a three time World Champion.
“When he first stepped in our gym, I saluted him. He’s tried to fight Floyd, Pacquiao – He’s taking a risk and daring to be great, you got to respect him,” Ward concluded.
