Manny Pacquiao Says He's Negotiating To Fight Amir Khan

The choices laid out by the Filipino fighter were Khan, undefeated former welterweight champion Terence Crawford of the USA, the International Boxing Federation welterweight champion Kell Brook of the United Kingdom, and Australian Olympian Jeff Horn.

It was assumed that Manny Pacquiao was heading towards a showdown with Australian boxer Jeff Horn, but according to his Twitter feed that has now changed.

Amir Khan won the poll by a considerable margin and now Pacquiao says he's looking to follow through on his promise to fans by reportedly starting formal negotiations with Khan. "Further announcements coming soon", Pacquiao, 38, said on his official Twitter feed.

"The Australian deal is not going to happen now, because Manny is trying to get a fight done in the United Arab Emirates and the people there favor him fighting Amir Khan", Arum said.

Arum however, remains unconvinced that Khan's camp will be able to generate the money needed to land the fight. "The senate in the Philippines is in session then", Arum said.

A bout against Khan would be compelling for several reasons, starting with the fact that Khan turned his back on Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach of Hollywood's Wild Card Boxing Club following his knockout loss to Danny Garcia. Khan is coming off of a brutal KO defeat at the hands of Canelo Alvarez, but that was a fight where he was undersized and over-matched.

"Influenza vaccines are effective at reducing the risk of a person getting the flu and having to go to the doctor by about half". Children under age 5, adults 65 and older, pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions are most at risk.

Reports Khan had reached an agreement with promoter Bob Arum to fight Pacquiao surfaced this week, but Arum dismissed the speculation as "bulls**t".

The veteran promoter remained skeptical on whether the 12-round showdown being pushed for a May 20 date can go on as scheduled given the huge amount of money needed to make it happen. But right now, I'm holding my powder.

Pacquiao announced his retirement from boxing after victory over Timothy Bradley in April 2016 but seven months later he returned to the ring to fight Jessie Vargas and win the WBO title.
