Even though Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan both tweeted over the weekend that they will tangle with each other April 23, it is not official.
Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s longtime promoter, has to sign off on any Pacquiao fight and he has not done that as of yet, according to BoxingScene.com
“No,” was Arum’s response, when asked if the deal is done.
Arum said he will be meeting with Pacquiao’s adviser, Michael Koncz, on Tuesday.
Keep in mind that Pacquiao had previously said he would next fight Jeff Horn of Australia.
