Default Khan Targets Pacquiao & Mayweather

Quote:
training for his american debut on may 15 against paulie malignaggi in new york's madison square garden, wba junior welterweight champion amir khan, 23, has gone on the record stating that he plans to retire by 2015. Khan wants to have all of his big challenges before the five year period is over, and that included mega-fights with floyd mayweather jr. And manny pacquiao.


"in the next four years i will have all my big fights so in five years time i will be gone," news of the world quoted khan, as saying. "when i hit my peak i will be fighting men like floyd mayweather jr. And manny pacquiao. They will be my last few fights. There are so many big fights in my division, but my body will tell me when to call it a day. That is why ricky hatton needs to retire. He could be one fight away from getting hurt."


khan and pacquiao are training mates at the wild card gym in hollywood, california. The facility is run by freddie roach, who trains both fighters. The decision by khan to target a future clash with pacquiao could put roach in a very tight spot. Khan and pacquiao even use the same strength and conditioning trainer, alex ariza.


The veteran trainer is close with both fighters but he looks at pacquiao like a son. For financial and personal reasons, roach would back pacquiao and break away from khan - if his hand was forced to choose one side. Most don't expect khan to every reach the pacquiao sweepstakes because the filipino champion is only a few fights away from retirement. Roach said in one interview that he doesn't see pacquiao fighting past 2011.
what is khan on saying he will be fighting them when he is at his peak in 4 years times before retiring mayweather and pacquiao will be retired and if he does fight them both i reckon wont be like they are now they will be in their mid/late 30's

If this is true, what a ****ing pleb.

I like how he's giving Ricky Hatton career advice..... how about proving yourself domestically before shooting for the stars - oh shit - Thaxton would have shattered those dreams in about two minutes flat back in 2007.

He gets a good win over Kotelnik.... then blows away the worst world title challenger in the history of boxing and all of a sudden thinks he's Ray Leonard

It's easy to run your mouth off knowing that neither fight will happen - would be piss funny if the winner of any Floyd/Pac fight gave Khan a call and said ''let's get it on!!'' - he'd be annihilated.

Hopefully he gets his wish. He might last 6 with Floyd, Pac will take him out within 2.

He bypassed Thaxton, he is a world class fighter, doesn't need to waste years revelling in mediocrity.

He needs to beat Malignaggi first.

Potential banana skin here IMO.

Malignaggi is world class, if he wins he'll fight other world class fighters, it's not like he's going to fight bums.
