Manny pinabulaanan ang laban kay Amir sa Nobyembre

MANILA, Philippines — Isang malaking thumbs down ang ibinigay ni eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao sa iniha­yag ni Amir Khan na ka­sado na ang kanilang laban sa Saudi Arabia sa Nob­yembre.

Mismong ang reigning World Boxing Association regular welterweight champion ang nagsabi  na wala siyang pinipirmahang kontrata para sa laban kay Khan.

Tutok si Pacquiao sa na­katakdang unification bout laban kay Keith Thurman sa Linggo sa MGM Grand Garden Arena sa Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I don’t have any idea. I don’t know that news, it’s not true,” ani Pacquiao.

Nagulat din ang publicist ni Pacquiao na si Fred Sternberg sa mga inihayag ni Khan.

“He has been in trai­ning camp for the past eight weeks, four in the Philippines and four in the United States, and he hasn’t met with Amir Khan during that time,” ani Sternberg.

Tila nagpapapansin lang umano si Khan na gal­­ing sa knockout win kay dating world featherweight champion Billy Dib para makuha ang World Bo­xing Council international wel­terweight belt noong na­ka­raang linggo sa Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

“That’s a question you need to ask Amir Khan,” ani Sternberg.

Sa ngayon ay wala pa sa isip ni Pacquiao ang su­sunod niyang laban.

Maging ang posibleng pa­kikipagtuos nito kina Errol Spence Jr. at Shawn Porter na mga ikinakabit na pa­nga­lan na posibleng makaharap ni Pacquiao matapos ang Thurman fight.

“It’s hard to discuss or talk about it right now. My plan is one fight at a time. So we’ll see, we’ll finish this on Saturday then we’ll talk about that,” dadag ni Pac­quiao.

Nakasentro ang atensyon ni Pacquiao kay Thurman.
