Khan could face Pacquaio
Amir Khanâ€™s team are in talks with Manny Pacquaioâ€™s promoter Bob Arum about a possible fight in Las Vegas next year, ESPN reports.
Arum revealed that talks are ongoing between the two camps, with dates in February and April being touted.
â€œWe were planning for Manny Pacquiao to fight at the end of February, or at the latest, the first two weeks in April,â€ Arum told the Sunday Telegraph.
â€œMarch is out of the question because of a big college basketball tournament in the United States. That gets all the ink at the time. Iâ€™m in the process of having negotiations with Amir Khanâ€™s uncle and his lawyer, Robert Davis, and those negotiations are ongoing.
â€œI know there was a report that Khan was coming here to make a deal with Ruslan Provodnikov, but he ensured me that was not the case.â€
Arum revealed that he considers it unethical to negotiate with more than one opponent at the same time and has identified Khan as Pacquaioâ€™s No. 1 target.
