Amir Khan wants only Manny Pacquiao


It seems that Amir Khan has his eyes on Manny Pacquiao only.

After scoring the unanimous victory against Samuel Vargas in the welterweight division on Saturday (Sunday in Manila time), the 31-year-old boxer was asked on who he wants to face next.

“Bring on Manny Pacquiao,” Khan quickly responded.

“He is an amazing, amazing boxer, so who wants to see Manny Pacquiao?”

Although Kel Brook is also one of Khan’s possible opponents, who was spotted watching his match against Vargas, the former sparring teammate Pacquiao is really hell bent on fighting the eight division champ next.

“There is a massive demand for it but the only fight that works for me over Kell Brook is Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao is who I want. I want Manny Pacquiao,” said the 2004 Athens silver medalist.

“Manny Pacquiao is my No 1 pick. If not, we will go back to the drawing board and if it’s Kell Brook, it’s Kell Brook.”

“Pacman” stated that he plans to be back in the boxing ring by early December after his recent win over Lucas Matthysse last July.
