Amir Khan Will Fight Manny Pacquiao

It’s been a long time coming.

For years, Amir Khan has wanted to step foot in a boxing ring with either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. And now, his wish to face the latter seems to be a reality. Both Khan and Pacquiao announced via Twitter they have come to terms for a fight on April 23.

Khan last fought in May, losing a middleweight title bout to Canelo Alvarez via sixth-round knockout. That loss snapped a five-fight win streak Khan had. Pacquiao, in his most recent bout, won the WBO welterweight championship after earning a unanimous decision win over Jessie Vargas.

No location has been announced for this bout, though Pacqiuao has stated he would like to fight in the United Arab Emirates.
