A third Pac-JMM fight was already big. An Amir Khan -- with only one fight in the US -- was hardly gonna' add spice to what is one of the greatest rivalries in the history of the sport .

How many years/fight later.

And it was the fact that Khan was Pacquiao's stablemate which would have been boosting the sales.

Fans eat that stuff up, revenge and that stuff.

Nacho? Marquez? whoever in the Marquez camp didn't fancy Juan's chances.
At that point, at that age, after going up in weight, could you blame them?

Khan was not guaranteed victory, and the reason they didn't take the bout at that point was not because Khan was guaranteed victory. He didn't carry the weight well at 147lbs, he had not fought at 140lbs, which was why he moved down to 135lbs again.

Khan's camp saw an opportunity to use him as a stepping stone. Young, faster, taller, longer against a lightweight who was slow, lethargic and looked old at Welterweight.

Always said this and will keep saying it. Anyone in the top ranks who hopefully isn't carefully selected or old would knock Khan sparks out. Mayweather would obliterate him, Marquez knocks him sparks out and Pacquiao literally decapitates his head.

About the same time if he had fought Khan. The TR-GBP beef had just begun, so JMM wouldn't have got the fight any sooner. He still would have had to leave GBP to land Pacquiao. Honestly, beating an Amir Khan wouldn't have made that much difference. Certainly not enough to warrant the risk of taking him on. Like I said, he [Khan] wasn't significant enough.

Fans wouldn't have cared about JMM beating his stablemate. They were still hot off JMM beating Pacquiao himself. The story/history was already there. It didn't need the 'beat his gym mate' twist to it.

JMM is a scientific fighter. Finesse. He's not one that'll swing hayemakers to viciously put Khan's lights out. He'll likely break him down systematically. Countering him to begin with, and have him running late on.
This, and it would be beautiful to watch.

personally khan could out box him and overwhelm him the same way he was doing it to Barrera and Garcia.

With Maquez having a chance of countering and KO'ing Khan. Although Marquez doesn't hit as hard as garcia.

And Judah who punches very hard from a southpaw stance. And Peterson who hits hars, and Maidana as well right?

They never carefully selected with Khan, they fought anyone they could get there hands on.
He fought a crazy variety of styles and on a different night would have got the decision he deserved against Pederson and He'd have stopped Garcia like he was on the way to doing before getting caught.

Too bad Marquez said no so we could all find out for real.

Why are you still upset?

Come on, JA.

JMM's the best counterpuncher in the businesss (outside of Mayweather). He'd have more than a chance. Khan is predictable, comes in and out in straight lines, doesn't vary his attacks, fights at one pace, etc. He'll get away with that stuff -- due to his workrate and speed -- against good/decent counterpunchers. But elite ones like Mayweather and JMM? Nah. He'd begin being countered from the opening bell. And if JMM can find him that easily, he won't need to hit as hard as Garcia to get the stoppage. Never underestimate the danger of pin-point accuracy and timing.

Think Khan would have to fight on the back foot, keeping Marquez at bay with his jab.

Marquez struggles when a fighter doesn't come towards him.

Please.

How can people be so ignorant when it comes to this bout? It was only a couple months back aswell. People talk like that the left was the first solid shot Garcia had landed. Garcia was taking Khan's punches very well. Garcia was landing hard on Khan from the first minute onwards, Khan took them well, up until...

He'd have scored a tko. Garcias face was badly damaged from 2 and a half rounds.

If they fought 10 times. IMO Khan wins 7, garcia wins 3.
