Amir Khan's trainer Virgil Hunter has said that he admires his charge before he faces the biggest fight of his career against Canelo Alvarez live on BoxNation this Saturday.

Hunter, speaking at the pre-fight press conference, told the assembled media that he was honoured to be in Khan's corner for this Saturday night super-fight.

"It's an honour to really be aside Amir. A young man that's been through so much adversity in his career," said Hunter.

"Here he is willing to step up two weight classes to prove he got into this sport to leave a legacy. To prove he fears no one.

"He'll walk right into the face of adversity, so it's a pleasure to stand by his side in the face of obvious danger against a great fighter," Hunter concluded.
