Amir Khan has "a great chance" of dethroning Manny Pacquiao to become the WBO welterweight champion when the pair meet in April, says Oscar De La Hoya. Khan's (31-4) long-desired bout came to fruition after he topped a Twitter poll Pacquiao (59-6-2) ran to see who fans wanted his next opponent to be. De La Hoya, who held titles in six different divisions before bringing down the curtain on his decorated career in 2009, believes Khan has the requisite ability to take the belt Pacquiao won against Jessie Vargas in November.
Growing up, I didn’t have the best opinion of pot pie. My family loved those individual frozen pot pies that you find at the supermarket. I wanted to like them, I really did. Having your own mini pie is so satisfying to a child. But the crust was dry and sub-par, the vegetables were mealy, the meat was bland, and they were scorching hot. We had to wait ages for them to be cool enough to consume. Then one day, my mom decided to make a pot pie from scratch. Oh, the epiphany! The crust was melt-in-your-mouth good, and the filling was ten times better. We’ve all been hooked on scratch-made pot pies ever since. I love a good pie-crust-topped pot pie. No denying it. A flaky, buttery crust is phenomenal.
