Following his split from long-term coach Arnie Farnell earlier this week, Ellesmere Port super flyweight Paul Butler has confirmed his new trainer.
Butler, 27, the former IBF bantamweight world champion , announced his decision to link up with Salford-based Oliver Harrison on social media on Thursday night.
Butler, from Great Sutton, opted to end his near six-year association with Farnell, who had been in his corner since the former Vauxhall ABC man's corner since he turned professional in 2010, citing the need to make a change.
"I've been with Arnie for five-and-a-half years," said Butler.
"For me I think it's the right time to make a change.
"It's nothing to do with Arnie – I love the man to bits – or anyone in the gym, I just need something new. I can't thank Arnie enough for the work we've done together. We've won eight titles together and rached the top winning a world title.
"It's just time for a new chapter. This has been hard for me but this is what happens in boxing. It's life, I suppose."
Butler will now link up with Harrison in Manchester as he bids to give himself a shot at another world title, and will train with four-time world title challenger Martin Murray, current WBA Inter-Continental super middlweight champion Rocky Fielding and Haroon Khan, brother of Amir.
