Khan: Me Against Pacquiao, What a Storyline it Makes!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Now that Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank are willing to work together, Amir Khan is open to the idea of facing his former stablemate, WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. For years the two boxers trained side by side and held numerous sparring sessions at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, with Freddie Roach as their mutual trainer. Khan eventually left the Wild Card when he dropped Roach and hired veteran coach Virgil Hunter.

"What a great storyline that would make? We used to train together, we were sparring partners, we used to have the same trainer. We were both world champions at the same time. There is a lot of history there. That's a great fighter. Manny has problems with quick boxers. I've sparred with him myself. I know he has problems with a good boxer who has a very good jab and a moves great. Im very big for the weight, Im a lot taller than Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao is a southpaw and I can deal with southpaws real well, that's a 50-50 fight," Khan told Be Real TV.

The question is, who will have TV rights. Don't they both have exclusive deals with Showtime and HBO?

Everyone knows Pacquiao and team Pacquiao wants no part of Kahn. He would embarrass Pacquiao maybe even knock him out.

Looks like Khan is very pleased with himself. Feed him to Pacquiao. I would love to see Pacquiao eat him alive.
