I will never fight Pacman-Khan

Amir Khan has ruled out sharing the ring in the future with pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.

WBA light welterweight champion Khan is currently in training ahead of next month’s defence against big-hitting Marcos Maidana on 11 December.

The 23-year-old has previously spared with the Filipino superstar but dismissed hopes of a showdown between the pair as they share the same trainer Freddie Roach.

“I would never fight Manny as we have the same trainer,” Khan told SEEN Sport Magazine. “It’s just an honour to train and spar with him because Manny is one of the best fighters in the world pound-for-pound.

“I want to unify this division, I want to get Maidana out the way and then fight the winner out of Devon Alexander and Timothy Bradley, which will make me the unified champion at light welterweight. Then I would like to move up a division and fight Floyd Mayweather.

“Ricky Hatton failed when he fought Mayweather for the pound-for-pound title but I’m sure I can go there and bring that title back to England.”
