The recently-announced bout between British fighter Amir Khan and Filipino Manny Pacquiao will not take place. Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum has confirmed that the highly-anticipated bout, scheduled for April 23, is ‘dead’.

Aram told ESPN: “It’s kaddish for the UAE deal. It’s dead.

“I’m talking about another proposal for another fight, not Khan. Khan won’t be Manny’s next opponent.”

Khan recently topped a Twitter poll run by Pacquiao to select his next opponent. However, the fight – provisionally slated for the UAE – will not happen, due largely to financial and logistical concerns.

The British fighter has not fought since May 2016, when he was knocked out by Saul Alvarez after jumping two weight divisions.
