Amir Khan is now the heir apparent to Manny Pacquiao: Roach
London, Oct 30(ANI): British boxing ace Amir Khan is now the heir apparent to Manny Pacquiao as the best boxer in the world, according to the fighters' trainer Freddie Roach.
Roach is currently preparing both men for forthcoming world title fights - Khan meets Marcos Maidana in December, while Pacquiao faces Antonio Margarito next month.
He said that he has been impressed with the way Khan has handled himself during his sparring sessions with Pacquiao.
"This is the first time Amir has got the better of Manny. It's always explosive when they spar. Lightning fast and bursting with pride. Like a cockfight," the Daily Mail quoted Roach, as saying.
"Manny is still ahead, but he knows that Amir has come out on top at least once. Manny is still super quick and speed kills. But if anything Amir is just a tiny fraction faster now and his punching is getting more powerful by the day."
"Manny's punching is more dense, but the gap between them is narrowing," he added. (ANI)
