Amir Khan has shown off his incredible hand speed as he prepares to return to action.
Khan was hoping to fight Manny Pacquiao in May but the event fell through after investors could not stump up the funds to host it in the United Arab Emirates.
What happens now with both fighters remains unclear.
But Khan has shown that he is ready for whatever comes next after being challenged to see how many punches he can throw in a minute.
Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum says that Pacquiao may still fight later in the year, but it is not expected to be against Khan.
Unbeaten world welterweight champion Keith Thurman insists that it would have been an interesting fight if they had faced off – and Khan would have had a great chance to coming out victorious.
“Some people think that Amir Khan can’t take a punch, so Manny Pacquiao should be able to stop him,” Thurman said in an interview on On the Ropes Boxing Radio .
“Other people would say that it’s a challenging fight for Manny Pacquiao. He’s not that big of an individual, and Amir does have the height and reach advantage over him, and Amir knows how to box.
“Styles-wise, some people would favor Amir Khan as long as his defense doesn’t loosen up and Pacquiao doesn’t hit him with a big punch.”
