Amir Khan’s team are in talks with Manny Pacquaio’s promoter Bob Arum about a possible fight in Las Vegas next year, ESPN reports.

Arum revealed that talks are ongoing between the two camps, with dates in February and April being touted.

“We were planning for Manny Pacquiao to fight at the end of February, or at the latest, the first two weeks in April,” Arum told the Sunday Telegraph.

“March is out of the question because of a big college basketball tournament in the United States. That gets all the ink at the time. I’m in the process of having negotiations with Amir Khan’s uncle and his lawyer, Robert Davis, and those negotiations are ongoing.

“I know there was a report that Khan was coming here to make a deal with Ruslan Provodnikov, but he ensured me that was not the case.”

Arum revealed that he considers it unethical to negotiate with more than one opponent at the same time and has identified Khan as Pacquaio’s No. 1 target.
