As previously reported by BoxingScene.com, Amir Khan claims he was misled before proclaiming a November fight against Manny Pacquiao was agreed.
Pacquiao's camp last week dismissed suggestions the Filipino great had agreed to fight Khan in Saudi Arabia.
The fight Khan has long looked for seemed to be on when he said 40-year-old Pacquiao had agreed to a November 8 date, but the British fighter now says he was fed incorrect information.
Khan, who defeated Billy Dib in Jeddah earlier this month, now needs to focus on ensuring his advisers get ink on the contract for his next opponent.
He was impressed with Pacquiao's win from last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - where he dropped and decisioned undefeated Keith Thurman to win the WBA welterweight world title.
At the same time, he also some flaws that he could expose - if and when he faces Pacquiao in the ring.
“It was a very good performance, Manny boxed really well against a really good fighter,” Khan told The Independent.
“His timing was there, his movement was there, his power was there. It was like he was boxing like a young Manny Pacquiao.
“But, his speed has dropped a little bit. He’s not quite as accurate with his punches like he was before.
“And his defence is quite low as well. So there are ways of catching him. Overall he’s a very good fighter still though, I’m not saying I’m better than him, I’m saying it would be an amazing fight and he’s a legend.”
