TRAINER Virgil Hunter exclusively analyses his man, Amir Khan vs Canelo Alvarez, in a Guest Column in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and the print version is in stores on Thursday (February 18). Here is an excerpt.

IT’S not as one-sided, when it comes to doing damage, as some might think. Ryan Rhodes went 12 with Canelo, it’s debatable that Erislandy Lara and Austin Trout beat him. Lara won the boxing match, but he lost the fight because his body language was all wrong. Canelo didn’t even land much, and no one can remember a significant one he landed to the head. Canelo also never hurt Miguel Cotto.
