Khan must avoid distractions on Philippines training trip to defeat Peterson

No Comments

If you were sitting down to plan the perfect training camp for Amir Khan for his rematch with Lamont Peterson, jetting around the world and back again wouldn’t be top of your suggestions.

But that is what Khan is doing as he tags along with Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao on their global tour.

Such is Pacquiao’s standing, the Filipino has decided he no longer wants to train at Roach’s Wild Card gym in Los Angeles.

He wants to prepare for his June 6 clash with Timothy Bradley in his homeland.

And because what Pacquiao says goes, Roach and Khan are spending the next six weeks training in the Philippines.

Roach doesn’t like training in the Philippines because of the circus which surrounds Pacquiao in the Asian country.

If he isn’t being mobbed or meeting the President, he’s performing his duties as an elected member of their House of Representatives or throwing the first baseball pitch in some public appearance somewhere.

All distractions Roach feels Pacquiao and he can do without.
