Manny Pacquiao’s choice

John Dennen considers Pacman’s best options

1. Amir Khan

Pros: Khan and Pacquiao share a past, with Amir playing second fiddle to him when they were both gym-mates at the Wild Card. Khan is fast enough and busy enough to make this an exciting fight. Khan is not universally liked but he’s known across the world and Pacquiao-Khan would be a global event.

Cons: Has Amir Khan done enough to earn the fight? He’s spent the last two years waiting for Floyd Mayweather and in 2015 ended up fighting only once, against Chris Algieri, and Khan didn’t do a better job against him than Manny’s 2014 performance.

Verdict: Rumours swirl about their past sparring battles so, while Khan should have the tools to trouble Manny, this bout could well have an explosive finish. Pacquiao-Khan is a fight not to be missed.
