IN preparation for next month’s history-defining fight against Neeraj Goyat in Saudi Arabia, two-time world boxing champion Amir Khan has been spotted training at Total Fitness, Bolton.
Now a regular at the Bolton health club, Khan has been embarking on an intense training programme at the club with his new training team putting him through his paces ahead of next month’s big fight.
Following a gruelling workout, Khan greeted Total Fitness club members, posed for photos and spoke about his preparations ahead of next month’s big fight.
Khan said: “I’m currently undergoing one of the most gruelling fitness programmes of my life. I’m working with a new team of trainers who are whipping me into shape and showing no mercy as I prepare to take on Goyat.
“I’m choosing to train at Total Fitness because it has a boxing ring as well all the equipment I need under one roof to facilitate my strength and conditioning programme which is getting me into the best shape of my life.
“Knowing how to throw the perfect punch isn’t enough, you’ve also got to have the highest level of all-round fitness and agility to stay at the top and this time I’m taking no prisoners.”
Paul McNicholas, Operations Director at Total Fitness, said: “It’s great to welcome Amir at our Bolton club and support him with his training and conditioning for his forthcoming fight. A boxer’s fitness is multifaceted and with our diverse offering we’re the perfect venue to help him with his preparations.
“He’s definitely been getting the most out of our facilities, particularly our extensive functional area with battle ropes, prowler track, Vipers and TRX, which help improve strength, muscular endurance, power, agility and timing, all critical fitness components for a boxer.
“Khan is an inspiration to both staff and club members and we’ll be backing him all the way in his fight against Goyat.”
