I have to hand it to Amir Khan, as much as we all love to poke fun at his enormous ego, he has really taken his troll game to a whole new level. For those who don't know, Khan has a new mobile app coming out on May 2nd called "Khanage." The arcade app is designed for users to take Amir Khan to where he rightfully belongs - the top of the sport. The game also features a few characters which you will probably recognize from their real-life counterparts.

In one video promotion for the app, Amir Khan takes on "Barry Mackyowl," or at least he tries too. Have a look...

Just in case you couldn't put one and one together, yes, that's supposed to be Manny Pacquiao who ran out of the ring (arm cast and all), leaving handsome Khan grinning center stage.

Then, in a follow up promotional video, Khan confronts "Dollar Bills Jr." inside the ring - an obvious allusion to Floyd Mayweather Jr. The troll meter hits a fever pitch as the video depicts Jr. intensely studying an ABCs book.

Then, in a finale, a red-haired Super Saiyan named "Dan Ello" has the guts to jump in the ring with Khan while Barry Mackyowl and Dollar Bills Jr. cower in the background. It's Khange Time!

Really though, however delusional you may or may not find these videos, they are pretty funny and might be good promotional tools for the Canelo fight. Kudos to Khan and the developers.
