AMIR KHAN Khan favours a fight with Manny Pacquiao over a grudge match with British rival Kell Brook because he wants to fight a “boxing legend”.

However, the 31-year-old is not overlooking Samuel Vargas, who he faces in Birmingham on Saturday in his first bout back in the 147lb welterweight division since 2015.

Victory at the Birmingham Arena could be a big stepping stone for Khan towards a huge stadium clash in his next fight.
