Next up, the news that Britain’s Amir Khan will not fight WBO world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao next month.
The two fighters had announced the “super fight” for 23 April on Twitter at the end of February, with the United Arab Emirates expected to be the venue.
But the Filipino’s promoter, Bob Arum, said that the $38m purse for the fight had failed to materialise and the bout was off.
“It’s kaddish for the UAE deal. It’s dead,” Arum said.
The pair can’t face each other until the second half of 2017.
