Pacquiao vs Khan sparring: Amir much faster than Manny?
"I'd fight Manny," Khan told Daily Mail last year.
"Look, it's business. We are friends and respect each other, but I would definitely consider the fight, and I am sure he would too."
"To bring it to Dubai, too, that would be huge. I am ready for whatever. Have I ever turned down a fight? Never. I fight whoever is put in front of me."
So how do they stack up?
When asked in 2011 to dissect a match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan, Jamie Kavanagh, then a sparring partner for both fighters, offered some insight.
"Amir Khan would knock you out with like 6 or 7 punches... "
"But Manny can hit you with 3 or 4. Manny has a lot more power."
According to Kavanagh, Pacquiao punched harder and was more dangerous, all-around, but Khan was faster.
"Amir has a lot more speed than Manny Pacquiao," he insisted.
A LOT more speed than Pacquiao?
When asked for a prediction should such a fight take place, Kavanagh replied, "It would be a very interesting fight. I'd like to see it."
