WBO world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will fight Great Britain’s Amir Khan on 23 April.
The bout has been arranged after Pacquiao’s followers on Twitter voted Khan as the opponent they would like to see the Filipino fight next. The pair have long been linked with going toe to toe and Pacquiao has confirmed it will take place in April.
In mid-February, Pacquiao asked his Twitter followers who he should fight “next in the UAE” — Khan was the overwhelming favorite, winning 48% of the votes cast.
