I WOULD LIKE to see Pacquiao vs Khan, if Khan gets passed Collazo and Pac gets past Bradley only to see for myself if the rumours were true, that Khan was too quick for Pac.
Khan talks a lot and is a self-promoter, but I never saw any comments to deny all the bluster Khan was coming out with that he was too quick for Pac in sparring.
Personally, what happens in sparring is not indicative of what will happen in a proper bout and Khan has a habit of lying about his sparring achievements and knocking out bigger champs behind closed doors.
I would, however love to see Khan and Pac get it on.Posted April 8, 2014 1:14 pm

They will attempt to get the Kahn fight fight even if Paq looses to Desert Storm. It may not be PPV but Paq might not be getting PPV if he looses again anyway.
You sir, are an idiot of the highest calling.Posted April 7, 2014 4:42 pm

This fight would be rediculous if Khan came off of a loss to mayweather. I believe Top Rank knows that and will attempt to woo Khan into fighting Pac after his fight with Collazo (which is not as easy a fight for him as some believe).Posted April 7, 2014 12:38 pm
“Some believe, as I do, that Khan is out for one last major payday to take into his retirement. Dude is not hungry anymore.”
That’s what I’m thinking too, Fight Aficionado. Khan has tried really hard to get a fight with Floyd. A fight with Manny has the potential to make Khan equal $$$ but Manny will have to be a champ for that to happen because I really don’t believe a non-championship bout between Pac and Khan would generate much PPV interest.
Regardless, I think it’s like you said–Khan is looking to quit boxing on a big pay check.Posted April 7, 2014 12:17 pm
has khan used up all his plastic belts.Posted April 7, 2014 10:09 am
How is Khan being talked about in the same sentence as elite fighters? Khan is a joke.Posted April 7, 2014 9:30 am
Pac can’t beat Khan at this stage of their careers. Khan UD.Posted April 7, 2014 7:57 am
“The ones posting comments here about Pac fighting anyone else shows you how much they know” – Not true. Some believe, as I do, that Khan is out for one last major payday to take into his retirement. Dude is not hungry anymore. If not Floyd then Pac will serve up the cash.Posted April 7, 2014 4:54 am
If Floyd and Pac are both circling Khan like vultures above a cadaver then of course it’s possible. Name opponent who still brings fans despite his losses, easy win against a glass jaw.Posted April 7, 2014 4:52 am

If Bradley loses to Pacquiao it’s OK… He can regroup and come back.
If Pacquiao loses it’s a freakin’ DISASTER!!!
Any question like Khan should be met with, “We’re focused on Bradley … We’re living, thinking, and breathing the Bradley fight until we hear the words “AND NEW…”
Entertaining other thoughts, just shows how stupid Roach can be.Posted April 6, 2014 6:49 pm
Every last one of these fighters and trainers should concentrate on the fight coming up.none of these fights are an absolute certainty.roach had better get pac ready for a game Bradley. He’ll look like a damn fool if he loses againPosted April 6, 2014 12:20 pm
He never fought anyone worth it! Why not Garcia or Thurman or even Brook ( broook is not a good call!) Roach is as people say Mayweather is!Posted April 6, 2014 11:44 am

Khan is restarting his career like Pacquiao. Why waste time recreating his career like an all time great when he hasn’t done much. DLH investing to much in Khan’s popularity. They should get him a trainer to protect that chin, like Wladimir did hiring Emmanuel Steward.Posted April 6, 2014 7:31 am

Pacquiao already beat Bradley, next Saturday night Bradley would take a swanky. Because those three judges made a great mistake, June 2012.Posted April 6, 2014 5:58 am
Khan needs to legimize his career putting some good wins against top notch fighters. Khan value in boxing has downgrade. He has some signicant loses against Prescott and Garcia, his last two wins were carefully selected and still struggle in both outings. DLH promotion are fooling themselves with this kid. Khan-Collazo will bring the truth about Khan, Collazo is not joke. Pacquiao and Roach concentrate in Bradley let Khan be who he can.Posted April 6, 2014 5:48 am
Come on Freddie pull yourself together.Khan does not deserve a fight with Pac or Mayweather.Posted April 6, 2014 5:43 am
I wasn’t overly impressed with him [against Julio Diaz in Sheffield last year]. The greatest defensive coach in the world must not be doing his job. They make this guy [Virgil Hunter] the best defensive coach in the world because he has Andre Ward. He did not make Ward; Ward made him. ~FREDDIE ROACH
Same can be said about Pac making Roach which I think Roach actually admitted.Posted April 6, 2014 4:38 am
He needs to take blame for Pac being knocked out by JMM as well as Khan being knocked out by Garcia. And Hunter was right about the other guy who I forget right now who looked to have impressive talent but was making the same mistakes other Roach fighters continue to make.Posted April 6, 2014 4:34 am
So, I’m not saying what Roach does well doesn’t work; it does. His ability to make sure his fighters are in shape is key because his reliance on high volume, aggressive attacks, is quite good against many fighters…especially if you have the right fighter to work with going up against certain opponents.
I just expect more from a trainer who has won trainer of the year so many times.Posted April 6, 2014 4:30 am
The main criticism with Roach still stands that he has yet to develop a fighter from the ground up. He is far from an expert in teaching a fighter to be an all around fighter because he seems to lack the ability to teach and understand proper defense (which includes counter-punching). And even his offense is more about high volume than what Tyson was doing in his prime with pin-point accuracy, timing, combinations, positioning, hitting vital areas, etc.
It’s not bashing him but one wonders why he hasn’t been able to develop and do the above after all these years. Maybe it does go along with your own limitations which showed itself in his own boxing career. I don’t know.
I just think fighters like Pac have a lot more potential than they are showing. Much like Roy Jones jr had but he didn’t have the right Teacher to make him reach his academic/boxing potential.
That’s why I bring up Tyson. With D’Amato’s system, we saw what he was and how fast he declined when he got away from it.
Then we look at Big George Foreman who was big, strong, powerful, aggressive in his youth, but lacked the boxing intelligence and technical abilities to make him an all around fighter like he would later become in his second go around despite his youthful physical ability declining to some degree. But that was all Big George teaching himself how to be better. He read books and watched tapes and picked up the trade on his own. I think that is what some boxers end up having to do.Posted April 6, 2014 4:27 am
It’s easy for people to bag roach, but he is making millions and trains 2 stars in the boxing world.
Yeah, I know, that is the given. But that’s not what some of us are talking about. After all, we know certain entertainers make millions and yet can’t act or sing while others don’t make that amount and have more talent.
I think its OK to critique if you can back it up.Posted April 6, 2014 4:18 am

Pac didn’t make adjustments to beat JMM and that’s the fault of the trainer (as well as the fighter). If you look at what Floyd and Bradley have done, they adapt to the fighter they are fighting. If Pac fought JMM the way Bradley fought JMM, which I do think Pac has that natural capability if instructed, then we wouldn’t have seen the devastating KO let alone a third fight.Posted April 6, 2014 2:11 am
If there is one thing, since I could be wrong, it is that Virgil was with Ward from the start. He was there from the ground up while Roach hasn’t built anyone from the ground up. He has been given Champions. You can’t be the greatest if you haven’t built anyone from the ground up.Posted April 6, 2014 1:51 am
Agree mansworld, tell roach to shut up, close the garbage trap. Meditate your stress away.
I wouldn’t put Martinez and Broner in the same sentence. Horrible. Martinez tells the truth, Broner is full of sh*#Posted April 6, 2014 1:38 am
WhateverPosted April 6, 2014 1:38 am
I think a lot of fighters are making the trainers more so than the trainers making the fighters. I’m not saying the trainers have no part but I do think the majority favors the fighter getting to the top despite who is training him.Posted April 6, 2014 1:36 am
Roach is one arrogant SOB he needs to focus on Bradley and worry about getting his boy Manny past a determined game fighter who wont stop. Manny will have to beat up Bradley or KO him that’s what the focus should be on and not the next fight. Manny hasn’t dominated since 09 forget about Rios who has nothing more than a punching Bag, Manny got KTFO by old ass Marquez. Kahn or Floyd should be the least of his concern…
It was interesting to read Roach’s comments on Virgil Hunter. Although I agree with him that Hunter is basically overrated, he should stay quite on questioning anyone’s teaching abilities, specifically when it comes to teaching someone DEFENSE.
Even his offense seems quite basic with a simplistic more volume is better. Pin-Point accuracy in vital areas at the right time are what makes a great offensive fighter. Think Tyson and what he learned from D’Amato. Tyson didn’t have to rely on volume. Just pin-point accuracy at the right time and in vital areas all set up with combinations.Posted April 6, 2014 1:29 am

And as for you largo. Your calling a shot that would of knocked out any welter ever the undoing of pacs chin is also laughable. Pacs chin is fine he has been hurt twice in the last ten years so stop your hating and use your brain. If Bradley stops him with his featherweight power then I think we all can agree with your stupid comment.Posted April 5, 2014 7:13 pm
Khan has no chance what so ever, the thought of it is laughable. I think he needs to be absolutely concerned for callazo, and even there I think he is neck deep in water.Posted April 5, 2014 7:10 pm
I think it’s safe for all of us to agree, Khan is no match for Pbf and no match for pacman. I still can’t believe PBF has him on the short list.Posted April 5, 2014 4:56 pm
Neither one has a chin anymore so whoever hits the other’s chin with a good shot wins.Posted April 5, 2014 4:36 pm

Your Right, Floyd Still half a billy goat in history .LOLPosted April 5, 2014 3:49 pm
Kahn vs Pacquiao is a big if. Kahn with that weak chin of his may not get passed Callazo. Pacquiao is not an automatic win over Bradley. If one of the two fail there is not interest in that fight. If they both win Kahn had better jump at the chance instead of hoping and waiting for a gift from Mayweather. Kahn holds no cards and will not get the payday he thinks he will. Mayweather is harder to negotiate money terms just like he’s hard to hit. How about a Pacquaio vs Broner fight? It’s not Mayweather but it would be like beating up his little brother, it worked for Maidana. lolPosted April 5, 2014 3:47 pm
Floyd doesn’t want to risk his legacy of being the GOAT.
That means he will never fight Pac or Lara. You can’t undo a loss.Posted April 5, 2014 3:45 pm
Anonymous, Floyd not a kid anymore he is the riches man in sports, he a pro. He not dating him. he taking million, no excluse
Family Protection, first was sr mayweather calling steriord then Floyd follow,
Tell Arum to back off his side of the promotion. Let his fighter become a free agent. Or be bought out for the fight. Floyd wants no part of Arum’s hands on the promotion and the money. That’s what it comes down to. Other promoters have allowed their fighters to fight someone else out of their promotion with a fee. Express to Arum he should do the same.;Posted April 5, 2014 3:20 pm
Floyd is half a champion if he don’t fight the winner of the top fighter of top rank, as he represent fighting all the unbeaten Mexican fighters and fighter tha Floyd avoided when he was retired from boxing 3-1/2 60% of the fighter were had unbeaten back then. He just the best from GBP side or half a champion till he fight the best from top rank.
Roger says Mayweather will dominate Maidana in their fight. Nobody can defeat Mayweather at 147, says Roger. But a very big boxer, with boxing ability, like an Andre Ward, probably could.
“The only guys that could actually beat my nephew is a guy that out weighs my nephew, if he out weighs my nephew and he can box, those are the only kind of guys that can beat him. But guys in his weight class, nah, guys in his weight class ain’t going to beat him,” Roger said.Posted April 5, 2014 3:18 pm
Khan vs. Pac would be Big and exciting. I’m for it.Posted April 5, 2014 3:07 pm
Cash out! He know he is done! Cant get floyd fight he will settle for pac! Any big name that can offer him a huge payday!Posted April 5, 2014 2:55 pm
Khan is def trying to cash!Posted April 5, 2014 2:54 pm
Khans next fight is a tough one.If Khan wins then let him cash out on Mayweather or Pac…because thats all it would really be…retirement money…Posted April 5, 2014 2:17 pm
“and it would likely happen after Khan has lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr, because that’s a fight that will likely take place later this year.” Really? Khan-Mayweather is a done deal? Really?Posted April 5, 2014 1:53 pm
Manny The Magnificent
My friends, Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Pacquiao, an UNPARALLELED 8 WEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD and FIGHTER OF THE DECADE, is a Legendary Warrior of Epic Magnitude who will live Forever in the Hearts and Minds of everyone who ever saw him weave his particular brand of magic in the ring. Manny is Primed and Ready to put on a performance in Las Vegas on April 12 the likes of which has Rarely been seen before, if ever. Amir Khan is not a suitable opponent for an EIGHT WEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION such as Manny ‘The Pacman’ Pacquiao, THE FIGHTING LION OF THE PHILIPPINES and ONE OF THE GREATEST FIGHTERS OF ALL TIME. Manny wants Superfights now. Manny wants Tim Bradley again to right the wrong of 2012. Manny will receive supreme justice against Tim, a valiant competitor, soon. Manny wants Floyd. These are the type of bouts Manny is interested in. My people, Manny Pacquiao is TRULY an ICONIC FIGHT FIGURE, with WORLD TITLES from FLYWEIGHT at 112 lbs ALL THE WAY UP TO LIGHT MIDDLEWEIGHT, 154lbs, a truly ASTONISHING and AMAZING FEAT. Manny is a GLOBALLY REVERED and UNIVERSALLY RECOGNIZED FIGHTING PHENOMENON. A SUPERSTAR. Hollywood even makes films about him. Stars want to be seen with him. He is an AMBASSADOR for the Noble Art. He is Humble and a Man Of The People. Manny is akin to a Young God from Mount Olympus, a Colossus bestriding the Global Fight Game like some Mythic Superhero, a Superman, a Spiderman, Batman, Captain America, Captain Marvel and Iron Man all rolled into one. A LARGER THAN LIFE FIGURE if ever there was one. Manny is TRULY a Fearless Fighting Ferocious Filipino Phenomenon, a Peerless Punching Pugilistic Purveyor of Precision, a Dancing, Dominating Destructive Destroyer. He is a Hurricane of Hurt, a Tornado of Terror, a Tsunami of Scintillating Supreme Skills, a Typhoon of Tremendous Torment for his hapless and helpless foes. My friends, the MAGNIFICENT MANNY PACQUIAO, THE MIGHTY ATOM OF THE RING, IS A FIGHTER FOR THE AGES, A BOXER WITHOUT EQUAL AND IS, without doubt, A LEGENDARY RING ARTIST WITHOUT COMPARE. Manny Pacquiao is, quite simply, THE BEST.Posted April 5, 2014 1:47 pm
Khan is not gonna make it passed collazo to even see PAC manPosted April 5, 2014 1:22 pm
It seems like Khan knows his punch resistance is gone and now he just wants to cash in on PAC or Floyd. If Amir still had true belief in his boxing abilities he’d b trying to avenge his loss to Garcia – that wud b a reasonably big fight, and if Amir were to win it wud b a great scalp on his record, one that wud also make him a credible opponent for Mayweather. Surely no boxing fans would resent Khan getting a shot at Floyd then either. But Amir doesn’t want Danny tho, coz he knows he’ll likely b KO’d again.Posted April 5, 2014 1:22 pm
Khan is a Con job as a pro. He’s a good amateur fighter, but he’s fragile. Khan is like Malignaggi, they both love to the top guys but can never beat any of them. Manny is on a whole different universe. Khan would do himself well to stay away, but Collazo just may be the one to retire him permanently. Manny Pacquiao is arguably the greatest fighter of all time. Let’s not get carried away by even putting Khan’s name next to him.Posted April 5, 2014 1:01 pm
Well Jeff Sorby perhaps you can explain why you write more articles on Khan then any other fighter?….Hell Khan seems to get more articles about him on this site then Pacquiao and Mayweather combined.Posted April 5, 2014 12:57 pm

I’m not paying for a PPV fight between two non-champions. So if Manny doesn’t win the belt back from Bradley, and even if Khan did beat Collazo, it would be two non-champions fighting. Not spending my hard-earned money for that.Posted April 5, 2014 12:32 pm
Khans days are numbered, if he loses to collazo that’s it. If he ever would fight Manny, he would be floored!Posted April 5, 2014 12:29 pm
