If Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are able to reach a deal for a 2011 mega-fight, WBA 140-pound champion Amir Khan is predicting the same outcome as Pacquiao’s twelve round destruction of Antonio Margarito from this past Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium. Khan told BoxingScene.com’s Bill Emes that he expects Pacquiao to dominate Mayweather in the same fashion as Margarito and others.
“I know a lot of people want to see that fight, but I think the same thing is going to happen to Mayweather. I think a performance like that [against Margarito], showed that he can beat any guy. Manny is very humble guy but once he gets in the that ring, it’s like he turns himself on and becomes very nasty,” Khan told BoxingScene.com. “I think if Mayweather and him ever happened, there is only one winner in that fight and that’s Manny Pacquiao.”
Even with the difference in styles, Khan doesn’t see any possible problems that Mayweather could present for Pacquiao.
“I think [in the Margarito fight] it showed that he can adapt to any style. He can fight you. He can move and box you,” Khan said.
