Khan: Pacquiao Is My Priority
In his second fight since returning from a two year break, Amir Khan needed to go to the scorecards to defeat Samuel Vargas in Birmingham.
Khan would be knocked down in the closing moments towards the end of the second round, but would be able to drop Vargas twice and now looks to jump the line and fight Manny Pacquiao for his WBA “regular” welterweight title.
“Bring on Manny Pacquiao,” Khan told Sky Sports. “He is an amazing, amazing boxer, so who wants to see Manny Pacquiao? Who wants to see the Kell Brook fight?
“I want the biggest fights and that’s where I belong. Me and Eddie [Hearn] are going to sit down. There is a massive demand for it but the only fight that works for me over Kell Brook is Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao is who I want. I want Manny Pacquiao.
“Manny Pacquiao is my No 1 pick. If not, we will go back to the drawing board and if it’s Kell Brook, it’s Kell Brook.”
