Manny Pacquiao announces he is in negotiations with Amir Khan

The eight-weight world champion, who also now serves as a Congressman in his native Philippines, had been in talks to fight Australian welterweight Jeff Horn but his focus would now appear to have shifted to former world champion Khan.

But Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz says the matter is unresolved - despite organisers announcing the Horn-Pacquiao last month, mooted for Brisbane's Lang Park.

Well, the ongoing saga on who Pac-Man may fight next just took yet another twist, as Manny himself has confirmed that yes, he IS in talks with Khan.

"My team and I are in negotiations with Amir Khan for our next fight", Pacquiao tweeted yesterday. "Further announcement coming soon", the former WBO champion tweeted.

Khan had previously considered a battle of Britain with Kell Brook, who has since agreed to a mandatory defence of his IBF crown with unbeaten southpaw Errol Spence.

Men TV Series Gets Blink
As we reported a year ago , the untitled series follows two ordinary parents who discover their kids have mutant powers. Chung, according to JoBlo , will play Blink , a "sardonic and spirited mutant with the power of teleportation ".

Pacquiao and Khan do have shared history together, with both of the fighters being trained together with Freddie Roach in the past.

"But until then I think it's detrimental to all negotiations taking place and it's not fair to the candidates we are looking to fight".

"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 reportedly said.

For Pacquiao, he insists he will take on Amir Khan.

Since then the 30-year-old has taken time off to recover from an operation to fix a damaged hand - which Khan revealed to The Sun meant he had been fighting with a broken bone for 13 years.

Charlotte Hornets Rumors: Team Interested in Trading for Bojan Bogdanovic
Bogdanovic was named to last season's Rising Stars Challenge and will be a restricted free agent at this end of this season. As for Marcus Thornton , it's safe to say his style of play didn't mesh with head coach Scott Brooks' game plan.

Duco Events, the organisers of the Horn-Pacquiao fight, have declined to comment.

Meanwhile, in an interview with The Manila Times, Arum said that the Horn fight would push through if the amount of money promised by the Middle East group did not materialize.

Pacquiao, the WBO welterweight titleholder, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Jessie Vargas in November while Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) hasn't fought since being knocked out in 6 rounds by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez last May.

"It is total and complete bulls***".

Khan, 30, pushed for a bout with Pacquiao past year, but after striking out, he opted to facing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at T-Mobile Arena in May.
