Although Floyd Mayweather Jr remains Amir Khan’s main target for 2014, Amor Khan has revealed he is also prepared to share a ring with friend and former sparring partner Manny Pacquiao.
“Manny is a great fighter, he is a good friend,” Khan told the International Business Times. “You never know. I never say no to anyone.”
“If it’s possible, I will fight Manny,” he added. But first Khan hopes to entice Floyd Mayweather Jr into the ring in May 2014.
“My team is working to make this happen,” he said. “But I am not focusing on it. My aim is to focus on my training and get as fitter and stronger as I can.”
“Mayweather is the top fighter. He is undefeated, and I want to be the one to defeat him,” he added. “With my speed, I can cause him some real trouble. Now it’s up to him and his team to come forward and set it up.”
