Amir Khan is fine tuning his preparation ahead of May 7’s huge fight against Canelo Alvarez.
Speaking at a pre-fight media day, the WBC World Middleweight Title challenger revealed: "This is a massive fight, fighting Canelo. He is a big name around the world. Beating Canelo will definitely take me back to the top where I want to be. I've always dreamed of being one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, and I think by beating Canelo that will definitely get me there. That is why I took this fight.”
Much has been made about Khan leaping up through the weights to take on Canelo, but under the guidance of Virgil Hunter, Khan believes he’s on track to spring an upset.
"We are going to have to use the right game plan towards what Canelo will bring in the ring that day. We will have to be very focused in this fight. What beats Canelo in my eyes is speed, and movement, skill and boxing IQ so that's what we are going to be using."
Khan has introduced new elements into his regime in order to bulk up to the agreed catchweight and thinks it’ll have a positive impact come fight night.
"It's been very different this time around. This camp has to be one of the hardest training camps I've had. Strength conditioning, the boxing and sparring have been different. I'm being pushed to the limit every time. I've trained very hard this time and I'm going to go into the fight very strong.”
