Boxer takes to the Mic for Pacquiao fight
BRITISH boxing champion Amir Khan is hanging up his gloves – for one night of commentating!
The Bolton champ will be ringside as a guest commentator for Primetime when his stablemate Manny Pacquiao faces off against the Mexican great Juan Manuel Marquez next Saturday night.
The 12th of November clash has been one of the most eagerly anticipated amongst fight fans as it brings to head the third, and potentially final, encounter between two legends whose previous engrossing battles have exceeded expectations.
Having already captured a potential ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate in Pacquiao-Marquez, Primetime said it was delighted to have landed another of the fight games biggest names in Khan who will be on hand to watch over a great night of boxing that, away from the main event, sees Breidis Prescott take on the undefeated Mike Alvarado and the Bolton star’s nemesis Timothy Bradley against the experienced Joel Casamayor.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing some great action on November 12th,” said Khan.
“I’ve been with Manny for some of his camp and I can tell you he is looking razor sharp in the gym. His speed and power is coming together at the right time but we all know how dangerous an opponent Juan Manuel Marquez is.
“He’s shown in the previous two fights between them that there is no quit in him and that he has the ability to cause Manny some trouble. Like everyone I’m excited about the fight because it’s clear that it’s going to be one that boxing fans are going to love,” added Khan.
