Khan: Pacquiao Would Be Harder Than Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

British superstar Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) is looking for a major fight in 2015. He plans to return on a date in December, possibly on the 6th, against either Robert Guerrero or Devon Alexander. He hopes to get either Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2015. Once a stablemate of Pacquiao under trainer Freddie Roach, Khan says a fight with the Filipino boxer would be tougher challenge than going up against Mayweather.

“Boxing is all about timing and Manny and Floyd are getting older. Someone has to take their place. Mayweather would be a very technical fight, like a game of chess. But I think Manny would be harder. He’s much more aggressive and it would be more intense. But with my trainer Virgil Hunter I’m a much better and more defensive fighter,” Khan said to The Guardian.

[QUOTE=Beercules;14826726]Khan speaking the truth[/QUOTE] yes, but how could khan be so talkative? this only gives floyd more reason not to honor the poll floyd put up himself to see who the fans wanted floyd to fight (khan won it, remember?)

This guy is still talking? Khan is a funny guy. A real clown (that can fight) but still a clown.
