Amir Khan Teases Comeback
Amir Khan, the former world champion, has revealed that he is in talks for a stunning boxing comeback just one year after retiring. Khan ended his career in May 2022 after a technical knockout loss to Kell Brook.
Potential Bout with Manny Pacquiao
Khan has teased a potential fight with boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Khan said, "You've been hearing rumours Manny Pacquiao is in town. We are in talks. We've spoken a few times and that fight could happen. There's a lot of interest in that fight between Manny Pacquiao and myself."
A Brilliant Fight
Khan expressed his admiration for Pacquiao, saying, "If I fight Manny Pacquiao I think it will be a brilliant fight. I've always looked up to him and we know each other quite well."
Pacquiao's Potential Return
Manny Pacquiao has hinted at a return to the ring and has expressed his interest in fighting for The Philippines at the 2024 Olympics in Paris. The 44-year-old's last professional bout was in 2021, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Yordenis Ugas and surrendered his WBA super welterweight title.
Pacquiao is considered by many to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, having been an eight-division world champion during his career. Khan, on the other hand, is a British icon in the sport, winning Olympic silver in 2004 and becoming a unified light-welterweight world champion.
If the fight between Khan and Pacquiao materializes, it is expected to be a highly anticipated showdown between two boxing legends. Khan's professional record stands at 34-6 from a career that spanned 17 years.
