Amir Khan Picks Manny Pacquiao To Knock Bradley Out

By Luis Sandoval

While Amir Khan trains and prepares for his showdown with undefeated WBC Junior Welterweight champion Danny Garcia on July 14th, the big fight this weekend is between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.

Khan is no stranger to either fighter as he trains alongside Pacquiao at the Wild Card gym and he’s had his run ins and verbal wars with Timothy Bradley in the past. I caught up with Amir Khan and asked for his thoughts on the big fight. Khan picking Pacquiao doesn’t come as a surprise but he also offered his insight on how he thinks things will transpire.

“I give the fight to Pacquiao by knockout. Maybe mid rounds. Manny will start finding his openings and start hurting him towards the mid rounds and put pressure on him. I don’t think Bradley’s fought anyone of [Pacquiao’s] caliber or as strong as him. Especially at 147 where Bradley has had maybe one or two fights at the weight division” said Khan as he spoke exclusively to BoxingScene.com.

Khan himself at one point was supposed to fight Bradley. Unfortunately for Khan the fight never materialized after Bradley decided to pass on the fight in pursuit of a new promotional company and a fight with Pacquiao. The gamble paid off for Bradley as he is now just days away from participating in the biggest fight of his career.

While Khan definitely feels Pacquiao will win decisively against Bradley, he also still believes Bradley is a tough opponent. It just won’t be enough.

“It’s going to be a big test for Bradley. But don’t get me wrong. Bradley is a tough fight but Manny knows how to cope and adapt to his style” said the Bolton native.

[QUOTE=-Lowkey-;12213815][B][SIZE="4"]Hopkins middleweight rain is nothing special[/SIZE][/B] and its definitely riddled with sub par opposition and arguably his best wins at that weight where against former WWs. Don't get me wrong Hopkins has had a great career but he will not…

Look...Arum is cashing out on Pac because Pac tried to have him investigated. He played it off, squared it away with Manny and plotted to have him taken care of. Bradley comes in and Arum arranges it with him to…
