By Edward Chaykovsky

Amir Khan (29-3, 19KOs) is ready to fight his former stablemate, WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. Khan returns in December and Pacquiao will defend his title against Chris Algieri on November 22nd in Macau. Khan and Pacquiao once trained together under coach Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California. In 2013, Khan broke away from Roach and hired trainer Virgil Hunter.

Khan says he told Golden Boy Promotions, and his adviser Al Haymon, that he's open to the idea of facing Pacquiao, but his team never received a response on the fight.

"The Manny fight can still happen at some point,” Khan told The Guardian. “My promoters, Golden Boy, and Bob Arum are about to start working together again. Me and Manny sparred a lot, and I often went with him to the Philippines, so it would make a great fight. I’ve left it with my team and my adviser Al Haymon and I told them: ‘I like the Manny fight.’ But we’ve had no response."

[QUOTE=littlemac]Manny was to busy looking for a cherry pick to respond to Khan. Good for Pac to find a cherry pick in Algieri.[/QUOTE] Only an idiot would think Pac wanted this fight.

[QUOTE=TLC8]Hey idiot, why don't you spend a little time perusing over Pacquiao's resume. He's fought absolutely EVERYBODY they put in front of him, in their PRIME, multiple times if need be, win, lose, or draw. Marquez begged him 4 times for fights and Manny obliged every time. Now it's Marquez ...

[QUOTE=CLUNG3-TANK]I agree with you, but Maidana and Algieri were/are title unifications, so despite what people say about their skill levels etc, its good for boxing.[/QUOTE] Algieri is unifying his 140 title with Pacquiao's 147 one?
