Definitely Khan. He is more versatile than Algeri and presents more threat. Algeri should be game, but even tho he's got knowledge on athletics, he's one of the lankiest fighters today. As smart as he is boxing wise, Algeri has some of the worst footwork in recent memory and now he's facing a fighter with one of the quickest. Only good news for Algeri is Pacman is trying to box more, so if he can lure him into a chess match, Algeri can make him look bad by keeping Pacman at the end of his jab. But Algeri has little power Pacman has faced guys like Margarito unless Pacman ages overnight he should win a comfortable UD, but with these unknowns you never know. Best case scenerio Algeri fights gamely, worst case this fight could be a stinker.

Khan of course.

And probably a more spectacular fight too. Algeiri's style is closer to Floyd's, but that one is never going to happen anyway.

I'll go with Algieri to be honest. Pacquiao would smother and stop Khan.

I've gotta say algieri, algieri has a good chin and could pose PAC some problems with his jab, lateral movement and ring iq. Khan has no ring iq or punch resistance, would walk into a firefight and get stopped.

Styles make fights, and Pac is all wrong for Khan. Too fast, and too strong. Southpaw to boot.

Khan would be wiser to go for the bigger money fight vs Brook. VS Pac, he'd be lucky to get 3 mil, vs Floyd he'd probably get 6-7, but vs Brook, he'd get 5 mil, and he'd be 50-50 to win.

And that would be the type of scalp he'd need to force a bigger fight and share vs Floyd or Pac.

Algeri actually PROVED he can handle pressure and power, as he did so vs Provo. Khans new style with Hunter looks safer than his old one under Roach, but still nothing he'd doing to suggest he can handle the monster lead L hands that Pac would undoubtedly be nailing him with.

I give Algeri his cred, but it had to do alot with Prov's stamina and midway thru the fight when he ceased with bodywork he went headhunter on the taller Algeri. Prov is a good action fighter, but is easily frustrated and loses focus easily too. Fight was too close imo and what really shoulda happened was a rematch between the 2.
