Pacquiao-Khan In Dubai?
Before Manny Pacquiao’s win over Keith Thurman, Amir Khan announced that he’d be the next opponent for Manny Pacquiao for a fight in Saudi Arabia.
While Pacquiao’s team denied talks of anything like that were not real, a fight between the two may actually happen in Dubai.
Per a report from Gulf News, the current WBA welterweight champion addressed the Dubai Sports Council this week prior to the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) event at Hamdan Sports Complex.
“I’m planning for next year; trying to make it for next year with a possible opponent. Especially Amir Khan wants to fight me. We will talk again. It would be a good fight,” Pacquiao told The National.
“We can discuss that, a fight between us. I have a commitment for my next fight – one fight only. But after that we can talk. No problem.”
