Oliver Harrison, former trainer to Amir Khan, Jamie Moore and Martin Murray, has died at the age of 58.
The Manchester-based coach had overseen the early stages of Khan’s professional career and enjoyed success as he trained Moore, Murray and Rocky Fielding.
Harrison under his tutelage guided Moore to British, Commonwealth and European titles. He also worked with Murray as he came within touching distance of a world middleweight title in four attempts, and also helped Fielding to rise the super-middleweight ranks before illness curtailed his time in the corner.
Harrison had also led Fielding to his rise in the super-middleweight ranks before the Liverpool hero had to switch trainers because of the coach’s worsening condition last year.
Amir Khan died after a battle with cancer.
