WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will face Amir Khan in April, after the pair took to Twitter to confirm they’ll be facing in the ring.
Khan stepped up to middleweight for his last fight against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in 2016, which he lost.
And now Khan and Pacquiao have both taken to Twitter today to announce they’ll be fighting on the 23rd of April. However, a location is yet to be decided, with Bolton or Manchester or the UAE a possible location.
“Negotiations between team Pacquiao and team Khan have come to terms for the April 23 bout as this is what the fans wanted,” Pacquiao tweeted.
“My team an I have agreed terms with Manny Pacquiao and his team for a super fight #pacquiaokhan #April23rd,” tweeted Khan.
