Ex-world champ Amir Khan (34-6, 21 KOs), who's been on the ropes with a recent disqualification, is lacing up for a showdown against the eight-division titleholder Manny Pacquiao (62-8-2, 39 KOs). The pair are eyeing an exhibition match, where Khan is eager to trade leather with the legendary Pacquiao:
"A scrap with Manny? That'd be epic. The guy's a ring warrior, a real legend. Folks are itching to see me back in action – it's the kind of fight that gets people buzzing. Stepping into the ring, feeling the crowd roar – it's electric gives you that fighter's chill. But, man, sometimes I wonder – why am I doing this dance again? Yet, when it's go-time, I'm all in. Ready to bring the heat, with every nerve fired up, just waiting for that bell," Khan shared on Daily Mail's The Hook podcast.
Khan hung up his gloves in May 2022 but faced a two-year timeout this April after a doping snag. His time on the sidelines ends on April 5, 2024.
