Khan and Pacquiao meet in London to discuss May fight (video)

Phil Jay 23/01/2015

Manny Pacquiao met up with potential opponent Amir Khan in London on Friday as the Filipino continued his visit of England’s capital city of London.

After meeting up with Prince Harry for a Royal dinner on Thursday, Pacquiao looked the epitome of cool as he posed for pictures with welterweight contender Khan.

Khan, 28, is chasing a dream fight with Pacquiao or rival Floyd Mayweather Jr, possibly at Wembley Stadium in the summer, and has been doing the media rounds this week to put his case across.

Pound for pound king Mayweather has so far failed to rubberstamp a May 2 fight with Pacquiao which could be worth $250m between them, but on this evidence, Khan is clearly willing to step in and offer the ‘Pacman’ an alternative.
