Pacquiao agrees for 'super fight' with Amir Khan

Multiple world champion Manny Pacquiao has agreed to face Britain’s Olympic silver medallist Amir Khan on 23 April in what the boxer duo described as a “super fight”.
 
The 38-year-old Pacquiao had said four days ago that he and Khan’s management were in discussions for the fight, despite an earlier announcement the Filipino’s next bout would be against Jeff Horn.
 
“Negotiations between team Pacquiao and team Khan have come to terms for the April 23 bout as this is what the fans wanted,” Pacquiao tweeted.
The 30-year-old Khan, who won silver as a lightweight at the Athens Olympics, has not fought since last May when he moved up two weight classes to fight middleweight Canelo Álvarez.
 
The much bigger Mexican proved too powerful and the Briton was knocked out in the sixth round and he is likely to drop back to welterweight to fight Pacquiao, who holds the World Boxing Organization title at the weight, The Guardian reported.
