Amir Khan has insisted that he would be willing to fight Manny Pacquiao in the future.
The British boxer, who is currently preparing to meet Luis Collazo in Las Vegas on Saturday, claims that his friendship with Pacquiao would not put him off meeting the 35-year-old in the ring.
"It can happen, definitely it can happen," Khan told reporters. "I mean, we are friends, but like I've said sometimes friends have to fight each other.
"I mean, Manny's a great fighter, but if it makes sense taking that fight, then why not?
"I want to fight the best people out there so if that means Manny's one of them and it could happen, then why not? It can definitely happen."
Pacquiao's most recent victory came against Timothy Bradley earlier this month.
