Amir Khan and Manny Pacquiao are ready to fight as both have agreed terms of the big clash. The fight is scheduled in May this year and the most likely venue will be Bolton or Manchester.
Amir Khan is ready to announce a deal to clash with boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao this May 20th.
Both of the boxers were former training partners. They have agreed on terms to fight in UK and the fight is expected to be one of the most exciting and highly-anticipated fights of this year.
For the past few years, Amir Khan has been waiting for a career defining fight with either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao and now it seems that he is about to get his wish.
The Times has given the news that both of the boxers are set to face each other this year and the bout will occur either in Macron Stadium Bolton or Manchester Arena.
In his last fight, Amir Khan has challenged Saul Alvarez and the fight was held in Las Vegas last May. Boxers were fighting from the WBC middleweight title. Alvarez knocked out Amir Khan.
After that fight, Khan took time off to get an operation for the damaged hand. He had been playing with a broken bone for the last 13 years.
This is the reason he is looking for a high profile bout to mark his return to the ring.
Both camps have reached on verbal agreements and now they need to sign official contracts.
Pacquiao remains a favorite of boxing experts to win any fight at ½ so he is most likely to win the game.
However, the report of the fighting has been declared baseless by Amir Khan’s PR team and Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum.
