Elie Seckbach, the Embedded Correspondent, brings his exclusive video reporting to FanHouse. Check back regularly for more videos.

WBA junior welterweight (140 pounds) king Amir Khan (24-1, 17 knockouts) believes that he is the fastest and speediest puncher in the sport of boxing today -- this, even than six-time titlist Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) and eight-division champ Manny Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs), who holds the WBO welteweight (147 pounds) and WBC junior middleweight (154 pounds) belts.

"I'm the quickest boxer that you've seen in boxing currently. No fighter is as quick as me. That's a fact.," said Khan. "I know for a fact that I'm the fastest puncher at the moment in boxing. There's no one who is as fast as me in boxing. You can see Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao. No one."

Khan and Pacquiao are promoted, respectively, by Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank Promotions.

Pacquiao has a Showtime pay per view televised May 7 defense of his WBO belt, and, Khan, an April 16 HBO televised bout against an opponent to be determined.

FanHouse was on hand to speak with Khan during the filming of a video about him featuring rapper Mr. Capone-E.
