And this fight has been a long time coming. Khan campaigned for years to fight Pacquiao. And it might finally happening during Pacman's retirement tour—we hope. Now that we're one step closer to this happening, who'll win the actual match?
Looks like any hopes that Australian schoolteacher-turned-boxer Jeff Horn had of fighting Pacman are coming to an end.
But whether it's Horn or Khan, Pacman would tough to beat in a match. He's a legendary WBO world welterweight champion with a total of 67 fights and 59 wins to his name. Khan better be ready for this!
But is there a chance, even a small one, that Pacquiao fights Khan next? Khan has wanted this fight for some time, convinced that his speed and explosiveness would be too much for the man he sparred so many times when he and Manny were both trained by Freddie Roach (Khan insisting he more than held his own in the hard sessions). Pacquiao-Khan in the United Arab Emirates: it would sell and you’d watch it. Don’t be massively surprised if you get the chance.
Khan has been waiting and preparing to fight Pacquiao for a very long time. It's King Khan's turn to reign.
