Amir Khan outdoes Manny Pacquiao's numbers, with David Haye closing in!

By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. When it comes to popularity, it's hard to imagine Amir Khan could beat Manny Pacquiao, but when it comes to twitter followers, this is exactly the case.  Pitting Amir Khan vs. Manny Pacquiao in terms of twitter followers... and Khan is the clear King.  I was actually a little shocked by their respective numbers because Pacquiao is such a global icon who's popularity seems to stretch the globe over.

The numbers... Khan (at the time this article went to press) has 1,192,893 twitter followers, whereas Pacquiao has 723,918 registered followers. That gives Khan 531,025 more followers than Pacquiao.

Honestly, I find those numbers a little shocking.  Unlike Pacquiao, Khan updates his fans often... I think that plays a large role in why Pacquiao's fan base on twitter is much smaller than Khan's.  Still, numbers like that are hard to ignore and I don't want to take anything away from Khan. Those numbers represent a fan base and obviously popularity.

Another fighter with some pretty damn impressive twitter numbers and closing in on Pacquiao is David Haye.  With 634,785 followers to Haye's credit, he is only 89,133 away from Pacquiao's numbers.
