Amir Khan gets response to Manny Pacquiao question on future

Amir Khan posed the question to WBN of whether ring legend Manny Pacquiao will ever fight again. Well, the Briton got his answer in double-quick time.

Sean Gibbons, Pacquiao’s advisor and head of MP Promotions, told Khan in no uncertain terms that the Filipino is now fighting for his country.

Pacquiao is helping in any way he can as the coronavirus affects most nations worldwide. In his capacity as Senator, Pacquiao is currently doing his duty.

In his response, Gibbons added that Pacquiao would undoubtedly be back in action once the crisis ends.

“Amir, let me help you answer that, my friend,” Gibbons told WBN. “Senator Manny Pacquiao is fighting right now!

“He is fighting COVID-19 in the Philippines for the lives of his Countrymen, women, and children.

“After that, he has a lot of boxing left,” he added.

Khan had asked whether Pacquiao would still have the fire burning to return when approaching 42 at the end of this year.

“Yeah, for Manny Pacquiao, it’s a long time to be out of the ring,” Khan told World Boxing News.

“I’m sure he knows what he is doing. “Manny is a grand champion, a great fighter, and a friend. Even though we tried to get a fight on, it’s a business at the end of the day,

“But I think it’s a long time to be out, especially at his age. At 41 or 42, your body will not recover as quickly as it usually does, even when trying to get back into shape.

“Your body will not get in peak shape as quickly as once, even if you train as usual.

“It could be a long time. Is he going to come back? We don’t know now. I know he has a lot of options out there. “Who knows?”


Khan himself has been delivering food packages in his ancestral homeland of Pakistan. 5,000 and 10,000 are expected to be given to the needy during this unprecedented time.

Pacquiao and Khan, former Los Angeles training partners at the Wild Card Gym, have a long history of charity work.

Whether a clash can happen between the two in 2021 is still to be addressed but seemingly never off the menu.
