Over the last month or so there has been a lot of discussion in regards who will Manny Pacquiao will fight next. Initially, the though was that Manny would fight undefeated Australian Welterweight Jeff Horn in Brisbane. Australia in April. However, negotiations broke down for that fight. For the past week rumors were running rampant that negotiations were taking place for a Manny Pacquiao – Amir Khan showdown. Well Saturday night, those rumors turned out to be a reality as both Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KO’s) and Khan (31-4, 19 KO’s) tweeted that they have come to terms to fight face off on April, 23. The location of this fight has yet to be announced.

From Manny Pacquiao:



From Amir Khan:



We now know who Manny Pacquiao will fight next. Now the question is how much of an interest is there for this fight, especially in light of how Khan was flattened in his last fight against “Canelo” Alvarez back in May, 2016? This is a fight that will draw some interest for sure because both Pacquiao and Khan are big names in the sport, but many who follow the sport in any serious way are skeptical and give this bout some major side-eye. In short, is this the fight we really want to see for either Manny Pacquiao or Amir Khan?
