Amir Khan is more than happy to go into May 7’s huge fight with Canelo Alvarez as the underdog.

BoxNation’s partners Coral have the defending Champion 1/3 favourite, but that doesn’t bother the gutsy challenger.

"It's the first fight I'm walking into as the underdog, that way I can prove to people this is where I belong,” revealed a passionate Khan.

Trainer Virgil Hunter added: "I don't view Amir as the underdog... I view him as the top dog!"

It’s a leap that shocked many when the fight was confirmed but Khan’s trainer is keeping the faith that his fighter has more than it takes to step up to the plate and deliver.

"You have to be impressed! It's a step not many fighters would take. He has the characteristics, he believes in himself," continued Hunter.
