MANILA, Philippines – British boxing star Amir Khan had a difficult time choosing the winner in a potential fight between unbeaten American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Filipino boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.
Although Khan and Pacquiao are good friends and frequent sparring partners, Khan told FightHype.com that Mayweather has the advantage in terms of defensive skills.
“But Manny’s attack is better,” he added.
Khan eventually gave Pacquiao the edge in the bout, because of the presence of his trainer, Freddie Roach.
“With Freddie in the corner, he can make Manny adapt to any situation,” Khan said.
