Amir Khan Offered A Fight With Manny Pacquiao

The recently retired boxer Amir Khan (34-6, 21 KOs) has claimed that he has been offered a chance to go one-on-one against Manny Pacquiao.

Speaking to IFL TV, Khan said that the offer came to legendary trainer Freddie Roach by phone.

“I got a phone call about another one [fight] today. Well, I didn’t. A friend of mine got a phone call from Freddie Roach to say, ‘listen, we want to get a fight now that Manny didn’t win the elections, let’s don an exhibition or maybe even a proper fight,’” Khan stated.

“They want to do it in the UK, [but] you know all the bullsh–t chasing Floyd Mayweather, chasing Manny Pacquiao – it wasn’t meant to be then and maybe it’s not meant to be now. So I’m not going to chase something. I heard it and kind of laughed about it.”

However, it remains to be seen whether the 43-year-old is willing to return to the big business community if it happens.

Pacquiao and Khan were previously in talks for a fight that was allegedly supposed to happen in Abu Dhabi. But the negotiations fell through after an undisclosed issue derailed plans, according to Pacquiao previously.
