AMIR KHAN insists his fight with Manny Pacquiao is still possible.
The British welterweight insists the money is there for the clash to happen in the Middle East despite reports that the £32m needed was not going to come.He said: “People are saying the money in Dubai is not there – but the money is there.My team have spoken to the right people and they’ve shown the proof of it. I don’t know what the hold up is.”
Khan’s next move is likely to be a fight in America next month to shake off the ring rust after his defeat by Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez last May before facing Pacquiao in November.
