The much anticipated WBO welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan is off for now. According to Top Rank Boxing Promoter Bob Arum, these two fighters may meet in the ring this fall. There was a mix up in negotiations, and miscommunication between Manny Pacquiao and Bob Arum.
Pacquiao was scheduled to put his WBO welterweight title on the line against Jeff ‘The Hornet’ Horn on April 22,2017. Pacquiao, however, did not want that fight, and chose to look for greener pastures which led to a fight scheduled for May 19, 2017 against Amir Khan.
Now that the fight between Pacquiao and Khan is off, not sure where this will leave Amir Khan for now. As for Manny Pacquiao, his next fight against who knows may take place in the summer. Will Pacquiao vs. Khan actually happen in the fall. If it does, it has lost a little luster in many of the boxing world’s eyes.
