'Khan more dangerous than Pacquiao for Floyd'

ESPN staff

Paulie Malignaggi has backed Amir Khan to be Floyd Mayweather's next opponent
Amir Khan would be a more dangerous fight for Floyd Mayweather than the "easy" option of taking on Manny Pacquiao, according to Paulie Malignaggi. Mayweather and Khan's recent trash talk enhanced speculation that the pair could fight each other next year, with Khan saying he would be too quick for the American.

However, having won his rematch with Marcos Maidana, Mayweather hinted  a fight with Pacquiao is more likely, although Malignaggi feels Khan would pose a greater threat to Mayweather's unbeaten record.

"A really intelligent boxing fan would understand that people like Amir Khan are more dangerous to Floyd Mayweather than Manny Pacquiao at this level, at this point," Malignaggi told ESPN.

Nonsense I'm afraid. Floyd would have trouble with Khan granted, but Pacquiao would give angles and footwork Floyd hasn't seen before. Remember this, Pacquiao was looking fucking good against Marquez until the K.O. He has then beat Rios in a shutout and Bradley easily. For some reason the power isn't still there, make of that what you will, but when Pac starts banging Floyd often he will fucking feel it. It is a question of who has slowed down the most? I was always Pro Floyd. That Maidana performance was poor, especially the running in the last round. He looked better in the first fight.
