WBO world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will fight Great Britain’s Amir Khan on 23 April.
The bout has been arranged after Pacquiao’s followers on Twitter voted Khan as the opponent they would like to see the Filipino fight next.
“This is what the fans wanted,” Pacquiao, 38, said on social media.
Khan, 30, also confirmed the fight but, although Pacquiao has said his next fight would be in the UAE, no venue has been announced.
