Amir Khan predicting Pacquiao to KO Bradley...

Khan at press conference for July 14th fight with Danny Garcia.
Amir Khan prides himself on his knowledge of boxing, and he believes that stable-mate Manny Pacquiao will knockout Timothy Bradley in their superfight on June 9th. At one point last year, it looked as though Khan would be sharing the ring with Bradley but things went wrong and the fight didn't happen.

"I give the fight to Pacquiao by knockout. Maybe mid rounds. Manny will start finding his openings and start hurting him towards the mid rounds and put pressure on him. I don't think Bradley's fought anyone of [Pacquiao's] calibre or as strong as him," explained Khan.

Khan has never really picked against Pacquiao, who he trains with often as they are both trained by Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym. He did say that 'Pacman' should have retired after his fight with Marquez last year but he then backtracked on that and kind of just forgot he even said it.

This seems to be one of the rare cases where somebody is predicting Pacquiao to win easily. Many people believe that Bradley will cause an upset on June 9th. You just need to take one look at Bradley's physique and demeanour in the build up to this fight and you can tell that he is ready for what could be the biggest fight of his career.
