How would you do it?
If you had control over everything and wanted to build Amir back up what would you focus on. I Doubt massive changes are possible considering his experience and alarming stupidity but how would you go about making a new beginning for the lad?

I would :
-Stay at 140. Amir never weighs in very heavy on fight night and is already too easy to bully at 10 stone. Being in with bigger punchers isn't too wise either.
-Get shot of Saj and the other hangers on and get a proper PR guy in to run his twitter and filter his interviews. All the crap he gets himself in is an distraction he doesn't need.
-Move away from the wild card and Freddy Roach. Roach has done a lot for him and is a great trainer but Pac and more recently JCC jnr are ahead of him in the pecking order there and the gym war mentality of the others isn't good for amir. I'm not sure where he should go. Maybe Manny Steward could rebuild him in to a proper stick and move fighter.
-Drill into him how to react when hurt and get him to focus on jabbing and 1-2 's then moving on again. When he backs someone up he can maybe let go with a left hook to the body. The main focus had to be on raiding tactics and a solid high guard for me though.

Your ideas CHB?

im not sure about the trainers,most if not all trainers can't give 1 fighter 100% so if khan needs this he will have to have his dad training him,and to tell you the truth i don't think he can be changed.
he has got away with his style against half decent world class fighters with not much dig(apart from maidana,but he has been found wanting at world level as well)i think his style has been ingrained in him and he has been sussed out
that seems to be the problem @12downfor10 ,he seems to believe he is the best thing out there and no no matter what anyone says he is always looking past his opponent which is a massive mistake,which is what i and many others have said about him in the past.

He is world class,nowt up with being world class it takes a fucking hell of a lot to get there,but there is a fair few world class boxers around who will beat him,he is just not a elite fighter
