I fight anybody who is brought in front of me. If its Manny Pacquiao, its Manny Pacquiao if not then somebody else. But we are still waiting for response on whats going to happen. Thats why I took a little break and came to India just to get away from all that because negotiating for a fight is not easy,” he said. The prodigal talent, who has held the WBA and IBF light welterweight world titles, is also well-known for his charitable work in strife-torn nations, including Pakistan where he has his roots. “We have the Amir Khan Foundation which is huge now. I never expected it to be that big. Its growing quickly and all the money goes towards helping people. We are building orphanages in Africa, in fact around the world. We are feeding the homeless in UK. We are doing work in Pakistan too and we are keen to branch out to any other place where we are needed. We are there to help,” he said. Khan said in the larger scheme of things, sport could be the answer that the world is looking for to end strife. “Sport helps everything in the world, sport breaks barriers, stops war. If you go to any Championship in the world, you would see, India, Pakistan, England, in fact everybody united. Thats what you want. We want more people involved in sport because it brings everybody together,” he said. “If you cannot keep sport and politics separate then you can look at it this way that having everybody together is making everyone get along and helping them work together. Obviously they are different aspects but sport is the way forward in life. If you can channel your children and youth into sport, it will break all barriers,” Khan said.
