Bring on Pacquiao, says Amir

Amir Khan and Samuel Vargas

"If the fight happens between us I know it will be big".

Vargas' record dropped to 29-4 plus two draws. "At 31, I'm at the peak of my career", Khan, who has the reputation of not afraid facing the best, as he proved by stepping up two weight divisions to face Mexican Canelo Alvarez in May 2016, only to get emphatically knocked out, said.

Brook, like most, were less than impressed with Khan's performance or his comments.

He also named Manny Pacquiao and Kell Brook as potential opponents.

Brook is scheduled to box again on September 22 in another warm-up fight for title. "If not, we will go back to the drawing board and if it's Kell Brook, it's Kell Brook". "Pacquiao is an awesome fighter.”. There is never a tiresome moment with Amir Khan", Hern was quoted by British newspaper Evening Standard.

The Bolton fighter told Starsport last week that he favours a fight with ring legend Pacquiao over British rival Brook.

Luckily for Khan, he was able to get his legs back underneath him again and listened to the advice of new head trainer Joe Goossen, who urged him to "calm down".


Colombian Vargas warned Khan he is not ready to face Pacquiao.

The tough South American was then suddenly on the floor in the second, a vicious right flattening him as Khan's whirlwind comeback looked set to continue in devastating fashion. But Khan replied with a quick flurry and the Briton seemed in control, but at the same time vulnerable.

To his credit, Khan settled back down in the third round to score another knockdown of his own as the thrills and spills continued to come through the first half of the bout.

"I want to fight before the end of the year so this was a great warm-up fight for me".

But Khan's work rate dipped in the tenth, allowing Vargas to land more punches and finished the round by landing a solid right hook on Khan's chin which turned his legs to jelly.

From there, Khan used his jab and quick combinations on the inside to outbox Vargas, who was bleeding heavily from the nose.

He added: "It could be one year, two, five or six".
