New, comments

Amir Khan has the biggest fight of his career coming up on May 7, and has opened training camp for his showdown with Canelo Alvarez.

AMIR KHAN

"Camp is going great and I'm feeling really good. I've exceeded a lot of the targets that I set myself at this stage and am well on course. Virgil Hunter is happy with how things are going, and come May 7, I'm going to be in the best condition, physically and mentally, that I can be.

"I'm getting ready to give the fans a very exciting fight at the T-Mobile Arena,. We're working on the perfect game plan for this fight and that is what is going to win it for me. I don't put too much emphasis on one individual thing, whether that's speed or power, it's about having all the boxes ticked going into the fight.

"I know what Canelo does well, and his key attributes, so we'll be looking to nullify those. I'm going to keep pushing myself hard in training and will be ready to give everything come fight night."

VIRGIL HUNTER

"I'm pleased with how our training camp is going. Amir is very focused, and he is aware of the challenge that lies before him. We have seen a lot of Canelo and know what to expect so we'll have the right game plan to overcome him."
