EXCLUSIVE Virgil Hunter outlines how Amir Khan can beat Canelo Alvarez

Hunter talks to George Gigney about Khan's mammoth task against Canelo Alvarez

AMIR KHAN must dictate the distance and range against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in order to win the fight, according to his trainer Virgil Hunter.

The pair will meet at a catchweight of 155lbs when they fight on May 7, though Khan will be giving away a lot in terms of size given that Canelo is naturally the bigger man.

Hunter, who was in the corner for Alfredo Angulo when Canelo stopped in 2014, remains unconvinced that the Mexican is as dangerous as he is made out to be.
