Amir Khan claims he could train himself for final part of his career

Amir Khan believes he could train himself for the final fights of his career – but hasn't ruled out a reunion with Freddie Roach.

The former world champion has worked with no fewer than six coaches since turning professional in 2005.

The late Oliver Harrison was in Khan's corner for his first 17 fights before Jorge Rubio oversaw the Briton's disastrous defeat by Breidis Prescott.

Roach took the reigns for the most successful portion of Khan's career as he became a unified light-welterweight champion.

Since they split in 2012, the Olympic silver medalist has worked with Virgil Hunter, Joe Goosen and most recently Bones Adams.

Khan, 33, is currently without a trainer as he waits for the coronavirus crisis to pass before returning to the ring.

And he is prepared to relocate to America for a third time having previously enjoyed stints in Las Vegas and San Francisco.

"I'm keeping my options open in terms of a coach and am doing a little bit of training at home," he told Mirror Fighting.

"At this stage of my career it's about having a coach just to set a game plan. I can even train myself for a fight.

"It's good to have a coach there but how much of a job could he do now because I've been in the game for so long.

"Do I really need one of the top trainers? Maybe for motivation, someone like a Freddie Roach who I used to be with; he would see where I was and where I am now and compare.

"Going to America was probably the best move I made and I would love to go back there again because I love the quality of training, the sparring and living out there.
