Pacquiao Fight To Take Place In November : Amir Khan

Boxer Amir Khan said he had agreed a deal to fight Manny Pacquiao in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia later this year.

Meanwhile Manny Pacquiao's publicist has denied a deal has been agreed to fight Amir Khan in November.

Britain's Khan stopped Australia's Billy Dib in the fourth round in Jeddah on July 13 to win the WBC International Welterweight title.

Filipino Pacquiao, 40, is scheduled to fight American Keith Thurman in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Khan told British Media his fight against Pacquiao was scheduled for November 8 and would happen even if the Filipino were to lose to Thurman.

But Pacquiao's spokesperson Fred Sternberg told Media that Manny has not signed any contract.

Khan was due to fight eight-division World Champion Pacquiao in 2017 in the United Arab Emirates but the deal fell through.
