Pacquiao's Adviser Aims To Finalize Fight, Venue By Next Week

Manny Pacquiao's adviser says Jeff Horn's fight with the boxing great remains on the table and could be confirmed next week.

But clouds over his dream fight with Pacquiao remain, with the Filipino legend's camp confirming the Australian is but one of a number of candidates for his next bout.

The fight, thought to be locked in for April, is increasingly doubtful with reports Englishman Amir Khan reached an agreement with Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum to fight the Filipino.

Arum has told News Corp Australia those reports were "bulls**t" speculation.

But Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz said the matter is unresolved - despite organisers announcing the Horn-Pacquiao last month, mooted for Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium.

"Hopefully by midweek next week we'll have a final on everything," Koncz told Fox Sports.

"Once we have confirmed 100 percent the venue and the arena and who the opponent is we'll make an announcement.

"But until then I think it's detrimental to all negotiations taking place and it's not fair to the candidates we are looking to fight."

Pacquiao is yet to sign off on the Khan deal, according to the UK Mirror, and it's unclear when and where the bout would take place.

Confusion has reigned over Horn's fight with Pacquiao since Koncz fronted media in Abu Dhabi this month to claim his next fight would take place in the UAE.

Koncz even went as far as apologising to the Australian public for the confusion, explaining that the UAE was always the first preference and Brisbane was merely a "back-up plan".

Pacquiao also tweeted, "see you in UAE for my next fight" earlier this month.

The 38-year-old then polled Twitter users on who he should next fight, with Khan the preferred option.

Pacquiao and Khan are former training partners, with the Englishman's representatives reportedly meeting Arum last month.

Duco Events, the organisers of the Horn-Pacquiao fight, have been contacted for comment.

Pac will lose the respect of fans if he fights horn after all the comments he made about Horn and not having heard of him and the poll and everything.

[QUOTE=Strategic1;17443040]lol for sure... yea, some of these guys are going overboard.. Pac is 38 yr old.. and there's a decent possibility this next fight will just be on premium cable rather than PPV. Business is business... There's obviously a market…

[QUOTE=paulf;17442778]People give him a pass for f[I]u[/I]cking everything because he's a barely functional retard with a pre-K education. He is, by far, the least intelligent person to ever hold a world title... and that's saying a lot. But yeah, its…

Let's hope Manny is a man of his word and fights Kahn in the UAE. There will be inevitable backlash should he fight Horn instead now.
