Default With Pacquiao getting older

Apparently having distractions outside the ring, looking a far cry from the fighter everyone thought he was, and just literally, declining with age.

And Khan on the up

Given Khans recent comments after the fight, and the comments he has made about sparring

How do you see the whole Khan/Pac/Wildcard situation playing out

It seems to me Khan fancies his chances against Pacman

So with Pacquiao being on the end of his career timescale (not shot, just past his peak), and Khan being at the opposite end.......do you think it's possible a fight between them is more likely to happen after Khans 'dissent' over the Marquez fight?

Even this version of Pacquiao ****ing murders Khan. Khan was fleeing in terror from Maidana. And when I say fleeing, I mean literally running backwards, no footwork, no defence, just terrified and trying desperately to escape. That guy is no fighter. He has fast hands and will outpunch B/C level guys, but any one of Pac, Mayweather and Marquez would utterly destroy him.

That aside, do you think there will be any friction caused by Khans comments? Because if there is a split there will almost certainly be a fight I feel

What with Arum trying to get Khan on board with TR I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to sacrifice Pac to him if he thought he was shot enough and Khan had improved enough

If he tries that, he'll end up with a nice big plate of this:

Khan would get his fragile jaw brutally shattered in an exciting 3 round match, that's not to say Pac can't be knocked out as we all know he's folded like lawn chair not once but TWICE.

Someone put this steaming hot turd in a time machine, he thinks it's still the 1990s.

You forgot to mention that Bob Arum waited till Marquez was almost 40 for the third match. That alone wipes away any excuse about Manny getting older when he waited until his last opponent was at his most "easiest to beat" and vulnerable age.

Well Khan would have to get a new trainer, and that alone would put him at a huge disadvantage.

Pac would dismantle him.
