Mayweather vs Pacquiao analysis: Is it still the best fight in boxing?
Khan was critical of Mayweather’s decision to face Pacquiao years after negotiations started, and it is understandable as the British star is disappointed to have missed out on the opportunity to fight him again.
The 28-year-old insisted that the unbeaten American took the easy route as he knows that Pac-Man lacks that explosiveness and power that he used to have, and so given the expectations around the fight it may well turn out to be boring.
However, Mayweather doesn’t agree with anything Khan suggested and responded by mocking him and insisting that he would be happy to provide him with a ticket to the fight so he can come see for himself that the bout isn’t boring.
“I am touched that Amir is concerned about the fight, and that it might be boring for the fans,’ said Mayweather, according to the Daily Mail.
“He doesn’t need to worry, the fact this has taken so long to happen only makes the anticipation and build up of the fight that much greater.
“I can even get him a ticket if he wants – so he can see what the biggest fight in the history of boxing looks like – and to appease any fears he might have about a boring fight.”
Mayweather added that he understands that Khan wanted to fight him or Pacquiao, but unfortunately for him the world was not calling for that match-up and now the two biggest names in the division have agreed on the bout that everyone was waiting for.
The 38-year-old insisted that they are going to make history on May 2, and ultimately Khan has to look elsewhere for his next fight after a trip to Vegas to watch ringside.
